This is perfect
The Road comax is the first bike I have ridden or owned and it feels excellent. It's quick, light and easy to use and appears to be made of high quality parts despite its low cost. I would recommend it to anyone keen on trying out cycling or using a bike for their regular commute.
Poor quality, from top to bottom. Bike stores are full of elitist jerks.
This bike is terrible. GIANT advertise it as having a Tiagra groupset, but its only partially tiagra and they have cheaped out with Tektro brakes and non-series cranks. I've had it for a month and have broken down three separate occasions.
Here's the crank arm shearing out of the axle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3s_wxeenDH0
Here's the disc brakes coming loose and nearly causing a massive accident: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7sdU98bmGk
In short, AVOID. I have ridden Merida and CyclingExpress bikes have never had these kinds of issues. The bike is awful, the customer service, worse still.
