    Perfect Bike with 2 notable flaws

    Bought this bike on a whim as there were few reviews for this specific model. Most reviews on their site is for their fixed gear bike.Product arrived in one large box, make sure you are there when the package man arrives otherwise you may have to haul the over sized package from a ups/FedEx drop facility which I imagine would be challenging.Inside the bike was mostly assembled as claimed by the manufacturer. However there were not any instructions in the box. The instructions on the website were for their fixed gear bike. However taking stock of the parts it seemed like it only needed a few screws here and there, and the front wheel installed. I used the detailed picture view on amazon and the manufacturer website to see where things go. Customer support was very quick in answering questions.Once assembled I took it to the bike shop for brake tuning which cost 15 dollars.On the first couple of rides, it rides beautifully, minor issues,... 4/5 Gold N Boy (Chicago) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great bike for the price

    I got one of these for my birthday, and love it. I got the cream color, large size. It's not perfect, and I will tell you why not, but it is solid and rides well and is a great looking value.There is a .url on the cardboard box the bike is shipped in, you will need it to assemble the bike unless you already know how to put bikes together (lucky me, my bf does and did mine for me). The pictorial assembly instructions can be found at [...] Yes, all of the tools are included. Yes, you can ride it right after it's put together if you've done it correctly. Don't blame the bike for your limitations. All parts were intact and undamaged, though the nut of the rear wheel had poked through the cardboard when I got it. But nothing was damaged.Downsides:The light. The light is a silly thing.

    Sort of happy with this bike.

    I bought this bike a few months back when there were only 2 reviews on here for it. For starters, it doesn't come with any instructions on how to assemble. They advertise it as being so easy to assemble, with the tool included. Big selling point for me since I know nothing about bikes and wanted something cute and affordable. The website listed on the side of the box was strictly for assembly of a fixie, which this bike is not. I took out all the pieces, watched the video once and realized I would NOT be able to do it myself. Took it to the shop and had it built there. It really is a good looking bike from afar. Every little bump in the road is felt though, maybe should have considered a bike with suspension for these mean, flat surfaced, paved streets. I got caught in a rainstorm for 5 minutes one night home. Put it in garage (where it is always kept, away from the elements) and was unable to dry it off but since it was the only time I have gotten it wet I didn't think it'd be a... 3/5 Chris - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Pyramid Speedometer/Odometer Installation

    I purchased this item from Niagara Cycle Works and received it promptly. Their price was more appealing than RDS Bikes. This type of instrument was common years ago but the older ones were made of metal and had a small diameter metal wheel attached to the spokes. The disc was perforated near the outside edge and a metal gear meshed with the disc to drive the speedometer cable which in turn operated the speedometer and odometer. This made in China product is genuine plastic. While not the quality of the old American models, it operates very well and for the money I am most satisfied with it. It is easy to read while riding compared to the electronic models which can be very difficult due to light reflection. The installation is very simple. Noting a complaint regarding lack of instructions, here is how installation is done: The accessory has 3 basic parts - the head (as pictured above), the drive cable and the drive gear assembly. Starting at the bottom, the drive gear has a metal arm... 4/5 Ward Boote "Bootlegger" (Wyalusing, PA in The Heart of the Endless Mountains)) - See all my reviews, April 27, 2007

    Mounting Instructions

    After struggling for some time with the speedometer without instructions I decided to write a short instruction--I hope it will help without pictures. The main idea is that the speedometer is attached to middle right side of the handlebar and the grey round plastic part that turns inside the suspension forks of the front wheel on the right. Then just attach the short black cable and you are done. I can't believe that they dared to sell this item without instructions; therefore only three stars. Otherwise, I would have given 5 stars because it is great fun and EASY to read. And you do not have the problem that the display turns black when the sun shines on it, which can be the case with the electronic speedometers.1. Attach the speedometer with the large black plastic screw to the metal mounting bracket by aligning it with the two indentations. Make sure the speedometer is not upside down.

    Good bike for a great price

    This review is for the Critical Urban Commuter 7-speed.I got my Critical in April. I've ridden about 60 miles on both paved trails and city streets. Overall, I'm very happy with it. It's a great beginner bike. A few Pros/Cons, in no particular order:Pro: Value - The price point on this bike ($300) is what attracted me. I shopped around my local bike stores. To get a basic road bike (without a rack, headlamp, or fenders) would cost $550-650 at most shops. With those extras, it's quite the deal. Quality might be a step down from a Giant or Trek, but it's probably not far off. You can get a cheaper bike at Wal-Mart or Target, I'm sure, but the quality won't be as good. If you're considering the bike, do factor in $50 or so for your local bike mechanic to tune it up before riding.Pro: Shipping/assembly - I got everything out of the box fine, and nothing seemed missing or broken. I didn't have any instructions, and I couldn't find any online. I emailed... 4/5 Don Gale - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Decent bike but a lot of problems

    This bike was a lot more difficult to assemble than advertised and no instructions were included in the box. I was unable to get the handlebars in, the seat was missing a screw and the fender was far too close to the back wheel to the point where it wouldn't turn. I brought it to a bike shop that was able to put in the handlebars and replace the missing screw on the seat but were unable to fix the back fender. ($60 tune up charge) I contacted the company and they sent me a replacement fender. Great. Or so I thought.After taking apart the back of the bike to get the fender off the last screw near the pedals was completely stripped (please note this is BEFORE I attempted to unscrew it at all) After trying for over an hour with various screwdrivers and pliers I was unable to take that last screw out and I had to return it to a bike shop and they had to drill the screw out. The new fender was also not a perfect fit and they had to add an extra washer to push the fender... 1/5 Shannon - See all my reviews This review is from: Critical Cycles Diamond Frame 7-Speed Shimano Hybrid Urban Commuter Road Bicycle (Sports) This bike was a lot more difficult to assemble than advertised and no instructions were included in the box.

    I had several problems getting my bike ready to ride

    1. Both pedal cones were much too tight, so they didn't rotate freely. They're adjustable by prying out the black plastic cap if you have the right metric socket, but you have to know to set them about .010" too loose by feel so that when you re-tighten the locknut the clearance is just right.2. Someone else said here that their bike came with the derailleur adjusted just right. Mine was way out of whack...which turned out to be because the frame tab that the derailleur mounts to was bent about 5 degrees off the correct angle to the bike axis. Fortunately (I guess) the low-strength steel used for the frame allowed the tab to easily be bent to the right angle. Then I had to reset all three setup screws and the cable length trim. This is kind of an exotic thing to be wrong with a brand new bike.3. Both wheels are out of true...about a sixteenth of an inch in roundness and another sixteenth of an inch in flatness. I'd expect a factory-new bike's wheels to have... 3/5 CriticalCyclesTEAM, April 24, 2013

I am still waiting to ride it as I did not receive the screw that tightens the seat in place and will have to buy one somewhere. Also, the kickstand is angled so far forward that the bike tips the other way if I try to stand it up. Oh yeah...the back fender rubs the tire so I will have to bend that. Also two reflectors didn't come with any mounts and I have two screws left over that are mismatched to each other but don't fit the bike. And....the rack is loose. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 8, 2013

    No instructions. Pedal fell off 2nd time riding it.

    The bike looks nice. It comes with a lot of bells (literally) and whistles. I was super into this bike when I first got it set-up. It's simple and light. I wish it came with some instructions for assembly, but it's far enough along that the pictures on this page should be enough for you to figure it out.The bad stuff: the bike scratches super easily, but I kind of want it to look a little beat-up to deter thieves, so that might not be a bad thing. What REALLY bothers me is that today, the 2nd day of my ownership, the pedal fell off. The hole in the crank is just totally worn out, when I tried figuring out what happen, a bunch of fine filings came out, as if the thread was just totally demolished. Installing it felt totally fine, so either I'm secretly mega-strong or the metal is junk. Considering that the pedals are the brakes on this thing, having them suddenly fall off is pretty distressing! I'll be contacting critical about getting replacement crank, preferably from... 2/5 Adalberto N. Garza (MIT, Hell) - See all my reviews, June 30, 2013

    I Expected To RIDE This Bike

    I was SO excited to get this bike!!!It's beautiful and affordable (compared to the real deal) but NOT FUNCTIONAL. I am currently sitting in my apartment absolutely pissed because I was half way through assembly when I realized the Left Pedal and it's receiver were stripped! I can't screw in the pedal, and upon closer inspection it looked like it was used before - stripped down with black scuffs and dirt chunks on it.After inspecting the bike I realized this - some of the parts looked brand spanking new, and others not so much. For one, the pedal that I couldn't install was obviously pre-used and pre-stripped. The tires were slightly worn with black, dirty streaks on the center of the tread.Additionally, the front fender was bent and missing the installation hardware. The bonus reflectors they included were also missing all of the installation hardware.I know this isn't a million dollar bike, but I expect some quality control, all new parts, and most... 2/5 CriticalCyclesTEAM, August 7, 2013

    Great... before it broke

    I really enjoyed this bike while it functioned properly, but that was a short period of time. Two months after buying the bike, I noticed the pedal come loose while riding it. When I pulled over to take a look, I found that the threads had completely worn away. The pedal could have totally fallen out while I was riding it. Since the pedals are also the braking mechanism, this presents a very dangerous situation. Critical Cycles was of no help when I contacted them. The bike looks great, but unfortunately it's ultimately a low quality product from what seems to be a low quality manufacturer.UPDATE: Critical Cycles reversed course and decided to ship a new crank set. I very much appreciate their decision, and they always responded to problems quickly. Still, the malfunction put me in a dangerous position and cannot be completely rectified by a part replacement because there was potential for serious damage. Critical Cycles seems to be trying hard, but at the end of the day... 4/5 LI (USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
