Summary of Reviews

10 reasons to buy

7 reasons not to buy

  • At 37 pounds, the Tour de Cure Hybrid is carrying some excess baggage.
  • A majority of Hybrid owners suggested that the bike be professionally assembled. Most parts need lubricating before it can be ridden. One example arrived with a fender installed backward.
  • Despite being sealed, parts were occasionally missing. Even within a sealed box, a seat-collar, bolts and nuts were absent for one owner.
  • Pre-fit tires inflate to a maximum of 50psi, which larger riders found insufficient.
  • A few buyers accused this Hybrid of being fit with generally poor-quality parts.
  • The Hybrid sometimes arrived packaged poorly. In one instance spokes were bent by a crank.
  • Brakes were labeled ‘flimsy’ and squeaked, even after professional refitting.

Bottom line

This Hybrid is intended as an affordable and versatile family bike intended for fitness, recreation and commuting. It was produced in conjunction with a large manufacturer, to raise funds for - and promote - the American Diabetes Association. Part of the profits from the bike go to that cause. The presentation of the bike has been well-considered but some componentry seems to be below par. Occasional packaging oversights and missing parts don’t do the Hybrid any favors. A sufficient number of customers felt they were getting good value for the bike’s low price.
