    long term thorough video reviews of the lower mid tier bikesdirect bikes. former pro

    former pro on a budget who rides a lot of miles. This guy is full BikesDirect convert now and owns a bunch of bikes from them. He is of the opinion that $$ bikes are overrated. Unless you are in shape and race competitively, he doesn't see why most should spend thousands to shave 10lbs of your bike.

    Windsor Wellington road bike with chrome fork
    cliffs notes:great and durable bike all around. even the wheelset and cranks has proven good for this 185lb rider.

    Windsor 4300 mountain bike
    cliff notes: crankset cracked in use and was replaced with $50 alivio crankset.. 2 years of use out on stock wheels much better than expected with one broken spoke.

    Good read/view bob13 - May I suggest putting it in the "Beginner's" section? It will probably help new riders not to stress so much about their budget or OMG not a cheapo DB bike )

    Thanks as always for having interesting and helpful threads, especially for those of us learning the sport.
