Love the colored rims!
One of my favorite bikes is the red Linus Dutchi but it comes in a bit over the $550 mark (it’s $589).
The reason Republic bicycles won’t break the bank is because they’re cheaply and awfully made bicycles. They really shouldn’t cost more than a couple of hundred dollars, but I guess the paint job automatically adds a couple hundred more dollars. Their frames are made with the heaviest steel that honestly hasn’t been used on legitimate bicycles in decades. If you want to upgrade to lighter, better steel, it would cost you only $100, but even the crummy components can’t make up for the price. Not to mention the factory production cranks out the most flawed, dangerous, and unsafe excuse for a bicycle. You’re better off spending $500 on…. pretty much any other bike.
