  • About this item:
    • Riding the line between a lightweight, nimble road bike for speed and a mountain bike for sturdy, stable handling in a more upright position, the Metric 2 makes a great city bike or commuter bike. The 700c wheels and custom alloy frame keep the ride quick and efficient while flat handlebars give you that mountain bike stability. This all-around street bike offers fast and smooth 35c tires that are wide enough to tackle any obstacles the pavement throws at you. With a Shimano Acera 8 speed drivetrain, rack and fender mounts, and strong double wall wheels, you'll always be equipped for your next adventure.

I'll just leave this here: https://www.berkshirehathaway.com/

Holdings are only worth about 300 Billion (with a B).
The Haanjo1 looks like a flat handlebar on a road bike frame, which means it would make you sit at more of an angle. However its probably lighter and imo 1x9 is better than 3x8. and you get wider tire 38 instead of the 35 on the Metric, you can easily get a dropbar down the road and convert it to a road bike, the frame looks good it has alot of mounting holes for bag-packing as well. Pick Metric if you want something thats probably better at hopping over curbs or light offroad use. but I think the Haanjo1 is better spec'ed for the $.

Please help to make a decision.
HAANJO 1 for $392.5 VS Metric 2 for $375 VS Schwinn Volare 1500 for $300.
I ride mostly on a road\pavement (90%) and 10% gravel.
Schwinn Volare 1500 has microSHIFT M26 rear derailleur and microSHIFT front derailleur, noname brakes.

That link for the Schwinn bike says $420, not $300. Did you see the $300 somewhere else?

Oh, in case anyone has questions about shipping:

Free shipping on all bikes over $350, parts and accessories orders $99 and over within the contiguous United States (lower 48) only.

I bought it a few weeks ago on Amazon for $295+tax. But components shown on product page don't match components installed on bike. Hesitating... Probably it would be better to return it and buy something else.

Shimano gear is low to mid quality, not going to take hard riding seamlessly...
