Bike Size Charts

BikeRide finds and shows you the best prices of the bikes you want to buy. Prices constantly change and it’s impossible to compare them all yourself.

We search for prices on over 120 bike retailers to guarantee that we find the lowest prices – to save you time and money.

It’s a promise we stand behind: If you find a lower price on a bike elsewhere, we will sell it to you for 10% less. For example, if you find a bike for $480 that we have listed at $500, we will offer you to buy it for $432 through BikeRide. The bike must be the same color and size, sold in the US and not include the use of a coupon.

If you find a lower price, email us at [email protected] with documentation of the price. We’re committed to making sure that the cost of a bike does not keep you from cycling!

Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Giordano Trieste. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

5 reasons to buy

  • Buyers felt that the Trieste’s low cost represented a great deal.
  • Two owners said the Trieste’s steel frame was sturdy.
  • One owner said their brakes and gears arrived “perfectly tuned”.
  • Standardized spacings made the Trieste upgradeable.
  • One buyer found the Trieste fairly easy to assemble.

5 reasons not to buy

  • Stamped rear dropouts seemed cheap and could bend with use.
  • At 30 lb without accessories, the Trieste was heavy.
  • Smooth tires were suited to roads, but not gravel.
  • One owner’s bent fork made it impossible to center the front wheel, from new.
  • An owner’s handlebar tape melted off after a hot day.

Bottom line

Some riders were happy with the Trieste as a starter bike, for use on daily commutes. Smooth tires suited it to city use. The steel frame was weighty but seemed sturdy. However, for this rock-bottom price, corners were sometimes cut. This includes pressed dropouts on the rear wheel stays. These are more prone to flex and may not suit rigorous off-road use. Peeling bar-tape and an off-centre fork were also factors to consider. It’s rare to find gravel bikes priced this low.
