    I recommended BikesDirect to my friends...

    ...and they ended up buying two Gravity Liberty CXD bikes:

    Save up to 60% off new Road Bikes - Gravity Liberty 2 | Save up to 60% off new road bikes

    Suffice it to say that these are not the bikes I recommended and not at all what I expected them to buy. Nonetheless, I hope they will enjoy their purchase. Does anyone here have any experience with this model? If you do, please share. Thanks!

    I am not currently on a BD bike but have owned them in the past. I know probally 10 people that have thier products. Their service is stellar, as I have dealt with them many times.(nature of the sport) If you can wrench on your own bike, they are hard to beat!

    I think it's really important to spend enough time to do good builds of the bikes. More grease!

    What do you mean by that? Where is more grease needed? I just built my girlfriend's Fly Team a couple weeks ago and didn't use grease.

    Take a look at the headset, then be sure to grease the seatpost and pedals. If I wasn't a slacker I would actually redo the BB to ensure there's enough there.

    I'm actually of the opinion that a lot of the opinion that a lot of the reliability of the bike is going to come from the initial build and setup. Doing it well is really going to ensure that a bikes direct bike, particularly at the low-medium end is a good value over the long run.
