Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I got the single speed version of this for a fairly flat commute and it works just about perfectly for this. The design of the bike keeps me sitting comfortably upright such that I do not have to put any pressure on my wrists to steer it. It is not exactly light weight but lighter than some vintage frames I've come across and overall it feels sturdy and well built, though they did cut a few corners here and there. The gear ratio is also very comfortable for me for an easy commute. I would not want to race it or take it up big hills but it's reasonably fast on flat streets and easy to get going from a stop. Overall, it's an excellent commuter bike for the money.

The minimal assembly was fairly easy and the only tool I needed aside from what's included was a screwdriver. Oddly, even though this came w/ a fairly long manual there were no specific instructions for assembly included. Took me a minute to figure out how to put the handlebars on and also that I had to disassemble... Read more
Where to begin with this hot mess?

I am a casual cyclist, not an enthusiast. I was looking for an affordable hybrid road bike for knocking around town, and this seemed to fit the bill.

First, the good: This bike is gorgeous. If you're looking for a decorative bike to hang in your urban loft as a visual accent, this is it.

If you're looking for a reasonable quality bike assembled with an absolute minimal level of competance, keep going.

First problem is the packaging. Let's say you were shipping a 50 lb, bulky object with delicate parts through the mail. What would you do? Maybe design some kind of clamshell for the core components? Hell, what if you just bubble wrapped the whole thing? That would be better than Retrospec's strategy - just chuck a bunch of s#!& in a box and hope it arrives.

They DID bother to print lots and lots and scary warnings on the box! Oh yes, lots of instructions for the lowly paid sorters on the UPS... Read more
For the money, this is an incredibly nice bike. I have owned a Linus for a few months, a much more expensive brand, and the Retrospec can certainly hold its own in terms of quality. While I was very impressed with the bike, there were a few things that I would have wanted to turn this into a 5-star review. First, the bell was garbage and came all bent up and unusable. Second, the shifter is a bit stiff and very difficult to read. Third, the bike rattle s a bit because the rear fender is mounted on a metal bracket. That was an easy fix though, just take apart the rear setup and cover the bracket in electric tape.

Lastly, my wife is 5'5'' and I got her the medium (I know this is more of a men's bike but she liked the look more than the Venus). The bike is a bit big for her so if you are on the cusp go for a smaller size. All in all, I am surprisingly pleased with the bike. The black is a great look.
