Not bad for a super cheap commuter but idk if it's any better than a big box store bike. Probably good enough for a lot of people but with no name components, you usually get what you pay for: noisy, rigid, slow shifts.

Good price for a commuter bike. 26 pounds is a bit heavy but that's expected for the price.

I have a wide net on my cycling related deal alerts, but this is one I think I must pass on. I do love how of all the 941 reviews I've read on the page so far, zero are for this product. But I could be wrong, it might be a great bed frame/night stand/umbrella/flag pole, etc.

Also, I could just imagine the conversation I have with biking buddies:

Them: Oh sick, is that the FDS Bike?!?
Me: Yup, sticker says it right there on the down bar.
Them: Whatcha use it for?
Me: Both racing AND commuting. When I bought it from Costway it said it was great for both in the product name AND description!
Them: Oh that's cool. Lightweight?
Me: I guess, it's about 26 pounds without bike light, water bottle/cage, etc.
Them: Oh... but you said Costway, so I guess that means you got a sick deal right???
Me: You bet, I saved nearly $35!!!
Them: Do they have free return shipping?
Me: No, but I'm sure it's easy to disassemble this thing, put it back in the original oversized box and only a couple dollars to ship this 26lb bike back!
Them: (grabs angle grinder)

This probably it: https://www.amazon.com/Aluminum-R...merReviews
One person gave it a bad review because it was damaged in transit and the other one said the bike was defective because the threads were reversed on one pedal.
And I believe they were paying $200 to $250 on Amazon, fwiw.
