Kijote

Only been able to get one ride in so far on my Kijote, but it was a fun ride for sure! This bike fit the bill for what I was looking for. Low entry fee into a drop bar bike to add to the stable, 4130 steel frame/fork, generous tire clearance, and a disk frame/fork that would work with the disk wheelsets I already had on hand. The only issue I had out of the box was entirely personal preference, and it was that the bars felt too narrow and the stem too long. Those issues have since been remedied. I went one size up on the bars and threw on a mtb stem I had laying around that was 30mm shorter than the Aventon unit shipped. Not ever been a huge Shimano fan, but the drivetrain did it’s job well, and I might actually say I like it. Sure, the whole bike needs a few adjustments out of the box, but that’s how it goes. The bike feels nice and solid. No weird creaks, yet anyway. The brakes are ok, and I say that because I haven’t used mechanical brakes for quite some time. Just need to get the feel back I guess. I mean, it’s only $600! That’s a drop in the bucket in the bike world! If you’re on the fence, and looking for this kind of bike, just buy it! You can always upgrade this or that later if you want, but in the meantime you have something you can totally get out and ride. It felt comfortable, it didn’t really show it’s weight(for me, anyway), it liked to be on some singletrack as well as pavement, and everything worked as it should. Completely happy with this purchase. Aventon’s customer service is excellent as well!

Decent Bike

No instructions on how to put it together but I figured it out. Stem was impossible to get handlebars on, the bolts did not even tighten. I am not even using the stem that came with the bicycle anymore since it doesn’t work. Fork was also set up backwards on arrival, ended up putting the wheel on backwards the first time.

Had to adjust front and rear derailluers to get gears shifting correctly. This was easy enough to do. Front brake had to be adjusted since there is barely any clearance for the outer break rim to move outwards but it got it moved. Still working in the rear brake, it’s squealing when I brake and when I brake lightly using the rear brake, the entire bike starts to have a resonance and vibrates. Tried cleaning the rim with alcohol and do a bedding in but doesn’t seem to have fixed it so far.

Overall, decent bike. Needs a lot of tinkering before being able to ride.

Easy process; assembly imperfections

The ordering process was easy and the customer service people were responsive, however the bike came with basic assembly problems, like the fork being mounted backward, that took a bit of finagling to get settled right. Would suggest either budgeting in a set-up and tuning from your LBS or ensuring you know exactly how to handle mechanical issues, to include re-indexing gears, before ordering.

The back hub came a little vertically out of alignment but that can be expected from shipment. My local bike shop basically said just ride it out. Regardless I have since put this gravel bike to the test and it's amazing. Started with an easy asphalt trail ride into a swampy off road trail on to a road ride home and it handled it all with ease. I love this bike.
