Where to buy

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 contact@bikeride.com 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 Trinx Tempo. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

13 reasons to buy

  • As a low-cost bike, the Tempo often came across as lighter than expected.
  • Shifting gears with the Tempo 1.0’s Shimano SL-A050 levers, was reported to be smooth. STI Shifters on the 2.0 also impressed.
  • CST Czar 25mm tires were long-lasting and suited to city streets.
  • Both crosstop and drop-bar levers are installed on the Tempo, allowing for both upright and aerodynamic riding positions.
  • The alloy frame was relatively light and said to be quite resilient.
  • Assembly was said to be uncomplicated.
  • The low price of the Tempo attracted entry-level road cyclists.
  • Three color schemes are available for this bike. The bright appearance appealed to some owners.
  • A steel fork dampens shock and absorbs vibrations.
  • Double-wall alloy rims are light and strong.
  • This bike’s geometry was seen as comfortable for endurance rides.
  • Eyelets allow for the fitting of rear racks, equipping the Tempo for commuting.
  • According to one reviewer, the Tempo was durable. After eighteen month’s use, it apparently required no change in componentry or even tires.

8 reasons not to buy

  • Most owners found the Tempo’s saddle to be uncomfortable.
  • Some damage was present on new bikes. This included scratches and gouges that were under protective packaging.
  • Misaligned brakes and a bent chainring were reported on new models.
  • Wheels sometimes arrived untrue and rims occasionally caused repeated punctures.
  • Instructions were described as somewhat lacking. They were intended for a mountain bike with components that weren’t present on the Tempo.
  • Shifting was seen as average by some riders.
  • Some owners experienced poor performance from the WinZip brakes.
  • After two months, one rider experienced many problems and did not recommend the Tempo for everyday use.

Bottom line

One happy Tempo owner felt that they’d experienced no major problems with the Tiempo, after eighteen months of regular use. With that said, several owners of this bike experienced buyer’s remorse and said that they wished they’d spent more on their initial bike purchase. One owner expressed how they would focus on verified reviews the next time they chose a bike. Trinx bikes are sold widely in certain areas outside of major western markets; Russia, Taiwan, the Philippines and Iran. For a lot of cyclists in these areas, the Tempo was an affordable entry-level option for first-time road cyclists.

Review Após 1 Ano e Meio de Uso da Speed Trinx (Review of Trinx road bike after 1.5 years of use.)

Level 1 expert

The bike still goes on, firm and strong… it’s done around 2100 to 2500 miles. I haven’t changed the tires yet. No mechanical problems either.
