Review

Simplicity is the keyword for the Takara Kabuto Single Speed Road Bike. If you are looking for a simple city commuter bike which offers a hassle free and comfortable ride experience, then this can be a good choice. This one comes with a steel frame and a steel fork. The bike is sufficiently light and can be handled easily at it weighs around 30 pounds – well within the range for a commuter bike.

The brakes of this bike could have been a lot better though. The side pull brakes do not meet the expectation at all and you should get them replaced in order to get the best out of this bike. The pedals are also quite cheap and the straps are quite irritating.

Overall, as a commuter bike, this one certainly succeeds. The ride quality offered by the Takara Kabuto is quite smooth. This bike is offered at an extremely reasonable price and if you are looking for a city commuter bike which offers to you high-performance coupled with reliability, endurance and style within a small budget, this one can certainly be considered as one of your best options.
