Sure it'll do a lot of people but despite the brand name nothing to shout …Sure it'll do a lot of people but despite the brand name nothing to shout home about. You'd struggle to get a bike for £250 though so still a deal


Yes buy Cannondale if a good price and you like the brand heritage but don't pay extra thinking you are getting a better quality bike. Dorel the brand owner uses cheap factories for Cannondale and Hambini the bicycle engineer on youtube rates Cannondale extremely low for frame quality after checking multiple frames for manufacturing quality and alignment. He also rates Boardman very low. I don't think Boardman are very different in quality to Carrera or Voodoo and use the same factories (Cambodia etc) but they are priced much higher and really don't merit the price which is at the price level of many brilliant direct seller's bikes. Amongst the brands he recommends for great engineering are those that own their own factories and can control their own quality and engineering processes like Giant for example. Not fair to single out Cannondale the same is true of many bike brands who have no factories themselves and keep changing the factories they use to save money. It just seems worse with Cannondale as they typically charge a bit more for their bikes. Many italian brands use the same basic quality factories and charge a fair bit more for their bikes because they have even more cycling heritage.

Watch the sizing. These come up small.

Which brands does Hambini rate favourably?
Craxy that bike was over £400

Which brands does Hambini rate favourably?


Remember his perspective is purely from an engineering viewpoint. The issue is top brands who buy from basic quality factories but charge high money for the bikes. He's not saying the bikes are unfit for purpose etc just the fact you have achieved nothing in extra frame quality and precision by spending more you still have a basic quality frame which might have fairly rough alignment despite spending a lot of money on the bike. He is basically spotting the con artists of bike importers who buy cheap but sell high.

Time and Look seem to have the best engineering standards and quality but Giant comes in as best for mass market value priced bikes. I think Canyon comes into the middle ground of quality because their aluminium frames are coming from Giant or were in the past so top quality but the carbon fibre frames were coming from quest composites (basic quality) so they are stuck in the middle of the ratings. That's just my interpretation though as that was how Canyon production was split in the past.

I was surprised by Specialized low rating but it seems many of their frames are made by fuji-ta (basic quality) and not Merida who partially own Specialized. Originally it was reported than Merida own 49% of Specialized but I think in fact its only about 10% from recent corrected reports so likely the majority of models are fuji-ta except for very premium models.

I've seen many bike industry analysts and comments that Giant are the best in the business for frame quality, technology and value and perhaps most admired company for delivering brilliant bikes at low prices and his frame quality analysis only adds to that reputation. I don't even have a Giant bike myself so not really biased in favour of them for personally reasons its just the information that is out there. Giant is also delivering more advanced aluminium frames based on 6011 even at budget prices where as many competitors are using 6061 aluminium on high end bikes but giving it a fake name like 'advanced premium aluminium' which I personally think is dishonest.





This is a recent fuji-ta video showing the brands they currently manufacture for within the video (main brands as they don't bother to mention smaller brands of which there are probably hundreds if not thousands). They have factories in many countries including Cambodia. Fuji-ta are the largest bicycle manufacturer in the world by volume and a massive supplier to EU and US brands. I guess they represent about mid-tier quality with their factories in places like Cambodia and Vietnam representing quality slightly below their mainland China factories quality.

Wondering if someone could tell me which is the better bike between this …Wondering if someone could tell me which is the better bike between this and the riverside 500 from decathlon? Both £249.99. Not really clued up on bikes. decathlon.co.uk/riverside-500-hybrid-bike-grey-id_8405210.html


Personally I'd recommend something like the Carrera Subway at £240. The Cannondale has a basic freewheel based drivetrain and the riverside has a naff front suspension fork. The Subway is a much better all round bike, stronger, faster and much more versatile and will need far less maintenance.

In 40 years of cycling I have never had a frame issue ( apart from rust on an old steel bar under poor decals).So all this nonsense about frame quality is for elite ( or very fat ) cyclists.

bonzobanana seems to know his stuff - but has a real hangup about max rider weight and freewheel hubs!

It's not really for the benefit of fat cyclists most of those would be better off with stronger lower value bikes rather than super lightweight weak bikes those people simply won't benefit from a 7kg bike if they are 30kg overweight anyway.

I totally understand that lightweight super fit cyclists who enter competitive cycling events will benefit from a high spec bike. I will never be such a cyclist but still find the industry interesting.

It's not really a hangup just something I point out as many people don't seem to realise many bikes have certified weight limits that shouldn't be exceeded for safety. Maybe a fair point about freewheels but I'm not alone regarding that, a huge number of people hate low quality freewheel based drivetrains typical of walmart bikes and low end bikes. However as I've said before freewheels are acceptable on a road or hybrid type bike but should never be fitted to a real mountain bike as they are far too weak. Hence the reason I didn't chip in straight away on this Cannondale about the freewheel based drivetrain which I certainly would of for a mountain bike.
Looks like it's OOS now so I'll expire the thread.
