I was wondering what you guys think of entirely chinese branded bikes? I noticed one on aliexpress. The price and config seem ludicrous. Has anyone ever tired these? I have spoken to many people in China and they say that the reason why it's so cheap is that the Chinese branding makes the bike much cheaper. But surely it would not make it only $50 new.
Does anyone have their opinions/experiences about these sorts of bikes?
p.s I'm researching bikes for my friend who wants to buy a temp training bike before upgrading to a new road bike in the summer. I'm mainly looking at old steel bikes on gumtree but this particular bike caught my eye.
