Review
The Viking Jetstream is an entry level road bike that targets the budding riders who are looking for a high-performance bicycle to take their biking to the next level. The smooth ride quality of this bike also makes a good commuter bike out of it. This one comes with a steel frame and fork both of which do a pretty decent job.
As a racing bicycle, the weight of this bike is certainly on a tad heavier side. The cables of this bike are not at all good. The tires also are pretty thin and if you are planning to ride it hard, you should have those replaced by a thicker set. The brakes and the pedals fail to deliver in this bike and you should upgrade them as soon as possible for getting the optimum performance out of the bike.
Overall, this bike performs alright and what makes it a good option is its price. In this budget, you get a bike which looks extremely impressive and delivers a power-packed performance which makes it a very good option if you are looking for a bike for racing, fitness riding, getting to work or just cruising along your town or city streets.
