Way back last April, I mentioned the Lamborghini road bike. It continues to pop up on the radar from time to time.
(Back then, Clancy pointed out that you can buy a naming license. There are also Cadillac bikes, Jeep bikes, etc. I remember being disgusted when I saw Harley-Davidson Cigarettes. Dunno if HD butts are still on the market or not.)
The specs look pretty exotic. It's got a "custom tube frame." It's "light and sleek." (I can't see where the actual weight is specified.) It even has a kick stand, standard equipment! And since it's blood-red and is a Lamborghini, how can you go wrong??? See it HERE.
The price has jumped from $250 to $270 - bummer.
I love the comments from buyers. Mixed reviews; owners either love it or hate it.
"I bought this bike 3 months ago and I haven't had any major problems with it. I ride it a couple of miles daily..."
"On the third day, had to change the deilures (they arrived bent +$30). In 8 months I've replace the back innertube 10 times at least (+60). Had the bike tuned (+60). The bike is really heavy and the components are cheap. The shifters seem cool until you realize that you cannnot add aerobars to place your body in a race triathlon position." (That's some FUNNY stuff!!! Especially the part about adding "aerobars"!)
"I assembled, tried it, disassembled it and returned back. [...] This is by far the worst bike I've ever ride."
"This is a good road bike. I own it for a couple of days and already love it. When it comes to bikes I know the good one just by seeing it and riding it. Gear shifting is a little bit of a hassle at first, but once you get used to it (and it breaks in) it is working fine. ... Lamborghini name on it says a lot, though it's made in China."
"I purchased three bikes for me and my sons. I've been riding bikes since I was 10 years old. I know about bikes very well. I had many bikes, but this one is the worst I ever had."
"Jim the Bicycle Guy" says, "Great first road bike for me. Plan on using for a few years until I really know what I need and want!" Good luck with that, Jim the Bicycle Guy!
