Gear Talk / Windsor Tourist? Is this a good bike?
« on: February 21, 2006, 08:31:10 pm »
I'm in the market for my first tour bike and have noticed that bikesdirect.com is the cheapest.  I did some research on the matter and found out why they are so cheap.

They are a company out of florida and they have the bike parts assembled in Asia.  They then buy the names of the bikes from companys that have more than likely gone bankrupt.  So, from what I can tell; the Windsor of old is not the Windsor of new.  All that said, I have no clue about the bike and if it would hold up for a tour.

I want to do a transamerica tour, but I cant afford a nice tour bike (I probably spent too much on my road bike).  Do you guys think that the Windsor will hold up if I put better tires on it?  

This is basically my price range for a tour bike, is there anything else I should look at?

You are right, $25 is not that bad.

But you have to consider what I said in my reply

23 years old + 3 roommates + just graduated from college + on a message board in the middle of the day = UNEMPLOYED

$25 is my food budget for a week! ;)

Lucky,

I liked it but I am exactly the demographic they are shooting for.  23 years old, college grad, adventure seeker, yada yada.  I liked the music to it and when they said something funny I cracked up, while my Dad (59) thought it was unfunny and boring.

I dont want to tell you if you would like it or not, but from your post, I would have to guess that you wouldnt really enjoy it.  Of course the scenary is beautiful and it will get you pretty pumped to get on your bike and go somewhere.  

Overall I liked it, and all my roommates liked it, but we are all 23 years old.  I can definatly see how a different generation may not like the humor and music, but the dvd is very well done and entertaining.

Ok, I watched the trailer, it looks cool so I bought it.  It is still really expensive though.
