Poseidon Triton Review - Updated Road Bike!
CONS: Brakes and saddle, while adequate, aren’t the greatest. Slight amount of play in overall tolerances (shifters, cranks, and derailleurs “leak” a negligible amount of power through excess friction, rattles, etc). The Poseidon Triton presents a medium between high value and killer design

Starter bike
Poseidon triton. $650 excellent first road bike inexpensive enough that it’s not a big deal when in 12 months you want something nicer and will be able to make a much better more informed decision as far as geometry style etc. because you’ll be that much more knowledgeable. But nice enough that it’s actually a really decent bike.
Quality, not so much
I received my bike today. When I took it out of the box and started to inspect it I found it to be very dusty and dirty out of the box. I have over 20 years experience working on my own bikes and what should have been a 45 minute to an hour was 2-1/2 hours. The brake pads were crooked in the mounts ...

Okay so my budget is 1k or 1000$ for a road bike, any suggestions?
The Poseidon triton. It’s $650 it’s incredible value for money it’s a fantastic first road bike I cannot say enough good about it. Plus it leaves you enough in your budget to buy some actually good tires (which pretty much no bike in this price range will come with) some bibs if you want them, a helmet, and front and rear light.

Great road bike from a new SoCal bike company.
Great road bike. Came 80% assembled in the box, took it to LBS for full assembly. Love the geometry, and the fact that this is a true XXL sized 61cm bike (this will really fit 6'3 to 6'7). Shimano Claris front and rear derailleurs, Shimano STI brifters, generic brakes, kenda 25mm tires, Ounce cranks...

Poseidon Triton Bike Review
But overall for the money that you're gonna spend on this bike which I'll get into next, I think it's a great entry level bike for someone who's really budget oriented. So now let's get into price point.

What are some decent road bikes for a non-bicyclist?
If you live in the United States there is no better beginner road bike on the market right now then the Poseidon Triton. It is $650 and it is incredible value for money. It will take you far

Unbelievable bike for the price
Comparable with bikes costing way more than this. Features usually found on higher priced machines include carbon forks, a Shimano Claris gearset and shaped chainstays and seatstays. Very smooth ride, comfortable and fast, precise gearchanges. You may be asking 'what have they compromised on to get ...
