The bikes handlebars are home to a Shimano Deore 610 shift system giving easy access to change the 30 speed gears at will. The brake levers on the Beiou Hardtail mountain bike are top quality Shimano M355’s and connect to a very impressive hydraulic disc braking system. All the cabling that leads to and from the brakes and gears are internal to avoid any problems while riding and also increase the bikes aerodynamic rating. When paired to the bikes light weight it means that the bike glides with very little effort so makes for a multipurpose mountain and road bike.
The Beiou Hardtail’s saddle is very thin when looking side on. This doesn’t affect the comfort so nothing really to worry about. The saddle post is adjustable so the bike can handle riders of different heights. The saddle is nicely finished with a red and white stripe.
The Beiou Toray mountain bike comes in a variety of colours ranging from red and black through to white. My personal favourite is the latter, the white Beiou Toray mountain bike is very impressive. It’s simplicity matched with the chunky frame reminds me of BMX bikes, all it needs to complete the look would be some pegs on either wheel. As mentioned before, the frame is quite chunky without looking out of place, the white background colour is broken up by black decals of the brand name ‘Beiou’. The frame is made of light and very strong carbon fibre. The seat post and handlebars are also carbon fibre which means the bike weighs very little.
The Toray has a front suspension fork to help lessen the blow of any bumps the rider would otherwise feel the full impact of. The saddle is a sleek design with a white streak to break up the plain black design. The seat post is adjustable so the bike will suit most riders. The handlebars are also adjustable and lend access to the Shimano Altus 370 gear shifters as well as the brake pedals. Both are easy to use and offer smooth yet effective control of the bikes speed.
