I needed an inexpensive mountain bike that would fit my 6'2" frame. I am 225 pounds. I thought this bike would be good b/c it looks like a solid mountain bike in the picture. UNFORTUNATELY, i was not able to zoom in on the tires. The tires are ROAD bike tires not MOUNTAIN bike tires. The description is inaccurate. If you need a good starter road bike, this is a solid purchase. If you are looking for a mountain bike.....LOOK ELSEWHERE. Thankfully, I have a teenage kid that needs a good road bike. He just received an early birthday present from dad! Overstock wanted to charge me $XX to return the bike.....simply ridiculous!!!

This is a great seat. I have a road bike and typically cycle 30 miles+ at a time. My existing seat leaves a little to be desired and feels awful hard by the time the end of the ride comes around. I didnt want to invest in an entire new saddle so thought I would try this. Ive used a gell cover in the past by Bell for spinning bikes at the gym and it worked fine for that purpose. On the road bike the cover does slide around a little from side to side. It isnt a huge deal, but i will probably permanently stitch the thing on to avoid it from moving around. It does help provide some softer comfort, but again by the end of the ride the seat still feels hard, so you can only expect this as a quick and inexpensive fix to do so much. overall i do recomend it for an easy solution.

Great for smaller bikes, I have a 26" dh mtb, a road bike, and a 29" mtb. It holds all 3 but is a little wobbly for the 29er and for the road bike, but it still does the job.

We bought 4, put road bikes on 2, and mountain bikes on 2. The road bikes are solid as a rock, no wobbling. The mountain bikes (fat tires), mostly OK, but if you bump it hard, it can tip over. For the value, these are great.

Made of sturdy plastic. Great for outdoor use. Holds my road bike just fine. That's what I wanted.

Very pleased with purchase. Received bike promptly with no issues. Bike was as described and I have enjoyed riding it. No problems at all. Keep in mind it is a road bike, with skinny tires. No off road riding.

I got a quote from a bike shop of $120 bucks plus tax for a free standing rack so I thought I'd try overstock and was happy to see one for half that price! I got the order in 3 days and put it together in half an hour. It holds my road bike and mountain bike nice and solid although don't be too surprised when you see the small box!

Great for road bikes. But tires of 2in and above do not fit. The rack is built strong and is heavy enough not to move around when sliding a bike into place.

The device is too small to view and manage while cycling. I would not recommend it. I've returned this product.

I really like this rack and am happy I got it. It is low profile and easy to set up, take down, move, adjust, etc. I have a road bike and a mountain bike hanging on it, so it definitely can handle the weight of normal bike shop-type bikes. The only thing to be aware of is that because it is low profile, the bikes don't hang very far from the pole, and thus may rub against it. Easy enough to fix by putting a towel between the bike and the pole. You also have to really tighten up the hangers well to keep the rear of the bike elevated, but I haven't had any additional problems with that.

This is the easiest way for me to store my bikes in my basement! The only thing to consider is that on a road bike the cassette(gears)/hub rests on the bars when the wheel is fully inserted. I don't think this will cause any damage unless you slam your bike into the rack, but worth noting.

I bought 2 of these, one for my mountain bikes and one for my road bikes. I keep both of my mountain bikes (~26lbs each) on one and no problems at all. It works great - easy to install without any tools, easy to adjust. Definitely a great purchase.

Very satisfied with this product. Portable, lightweight and easy to assemble. Extremely large tires do not fit, but normal mountain bike and road bike tires fit. Balances nicely with front or back tire in stand.

So glad that we bought this!! It fits our 9'.5" basement ceiling perfectly. It makes our two road bikes look like a sculpture :-) Many, many months later, it has not fallen down or budged. Could not be more pleased!

Great product however I have a road bike and the handle bars are big in diameter and the clamp on for the headlight does not fit. The red light for the seat post works so I will have to modify or find another clamp for the headlight which is what i mainly wanted. So keep this in mind when purchasing.

Best pair of gloves I have bought. Padding is comfortable. Quality is very good. Can't think of anything questionable. I enjoy them.

I really like this product. It was quick and easy to put together. I have two bikes, a mountain bike and a road bike, so I have no problem lifting the very light road bike high enough to hook it on the top rack. If you have heavy bikes you might need some muscle to lift the top one slighlty above your head. But other then that it works beautifuly and I am very confident that my bikes will be safe, and out of the way. A very good buy, priced very reasonably!
Bicycles provide riders with a slew of benefits, ranging from pure thrills to incredible exercise. Bikes, truly incredible modes of transportation, have been delighting riders young and old for years, and their popularity only grows. With bicycles, the fun never ends. If you're in the market for a road bike, there's a lot to consider. Road bikes feature a variety of characteristics that you'll want to think about before making a final decision. Take a look at the article below to learn how to pick the right road bike for your recreation.
Cycling shoes are designed to improve a cyclist's performance. The sole of a cycling shoe has limited flexibility, which helps a cyclist concentrate all his or her power on pedaling. Cycling shoes also have special cleats that clip into clipless pedals (a very misleading name) to prevent the shoes from slipping off and allow you to pull up on your pedals, increasing your cycling performance. Once clipped in, the bike shoes will remain attached until the cyclist is ready to disengage. Cycling shoes are specially designed for various styles of cycling, including road racing, spinning, touring, off-road biking and mountain biking. Road-cycling shoes usually have slick plastic soles that aren't designed to provide traction. Mountain-bike shoes, on the other hand, look more like regular hiking shoes and are more suited to walking.
As with most sports, cycling has an array of gear made specifically for it. Cycling shoes, for example, are designed to help a cyclist perform better. While regular tennis shoes or sneakers slip on the pedals of a bike, cycling shoes grip the pedals. The stiffness of the soles of these shoes combined with the ability to fasten to the pedals of the bike allow for optimum efficiency when cycling. If you are participating in cycling, it is necessary to buy biking shoes to get the most out of bike rides without wasting energy.
Although cycling is something most people learn to do at a young age, it can be dangerous, and riders should wear a cycling helmet every time they ride a bicycle. Though wearing a cycling helmet will not prevent an accident, one of the following facts about wearing a helmet while cycling may be the one that saves your life.
When choosing winter cycling apparel, keep in mind how cold the weather you'll be cycling in is. Choose apparel that is appropriate to the weather and that fits you well. Too many air pockets can make you cold, as can clothing that is too tight. Winter cycling can be a fun sport with the right clothing. Biking in winter can be comfortable with the right apparel.
Bikes are as varied as the terrain you ride them on, and choosing the right bicycles can be a daunting task. Our bicycle buying guide will help you learn some cycling basics and the different bikes that are available for you to choose from.
Finding the right bike seat is an important but challenging task. On the one hand, bike seats have the tendency to be chronically uncomfortable, so deciding which one will break the mold can be difficult. On the other hand, you'll be stuck cycling on your bike seat for hours at a time, so breaking that mold is exactly what you need to do. Break down your search of bicycle parts and accessories by a few key factors, and you'll find the right seat for you.
Riding bikes is a hobby that adults and children share. Cycling provides good exercise, and bicycle commuting is an environmentally friendly way to travel. If you spend any time on a bike, you should know how to change or patch a bike tire so you don't get stranded somewhere.
Though a bike is a large, expensive purchase, you should still spend a little extra money on bike parts and accessories. Assess your needs and get all the essential gear you need for road or trail cycling. Here are some of the items that will help you when bicycling.
If you own a bicycle, at some point you will probably have to change the tires. Worn down or cracked bicycle tires can be very dangerous because the tube inside is exposed and may suddenly blow out if you ride over a sharp object. Another reason to change your bicycle tires is if you plan to ride on different types of terrain. You will need a tire with more traction if you switch from cycling on paved roads to cycling off-road, while tires that are narrower are more efficient on smooth, paved roads and trails. When it comes to safety, tires are one of the most important bicycle parts and accessories to consider.
Bicycle helmet safety is the key to minimizing head injuries while cycling, either for recreation or commuting. Some states do not have bicycle helmet laws, although about 150 municipalities nationwide have bike helmet ordinances on the books. Riders and parents living in states with no bike helmet laws must be vigilant to ensure family members are equipped with the proper helmets.
