It's inexpensive, not cheap

I haven't had the Aventon Kijote long enough to develop a long-term opinion about the bike, but here are my initial experiences and impressions with the Aventon Kijote:

Out of the box the derailleur hanger and front disc were bent. With those things fixed and the bike adjusted, shifting is smooth and quiet, and braking is solid with no squealing. The ride is nice: oddly the Kijote feels slightly lighter and more nimble than my alloy hybrid. My only real complaint may be with the crank arms and pedal position. For some reason I can bump my heals against the chainstays and scrape my toes on the ground when pedaling on a flat stretch of road. I can correct both of those things by changing my form on the bike slightly, but I've never had that issue on any other bike I've ridden. Those thinking of converting this bike to 650b wheels beware that I would not suggest doing so without also putting shorter crank arms on. The seat is also not particularly comfortable and will be replaced at some time in the near future. That, however, is another beauty of the Kijote: you can buy it and customize it exactly the way you want for less money than the price of a big name bike of similar specs.

All in all, I'm happy with the Kijote. It's a good bike that's fun to ride and, with some customization, could be a good all-round bike for anyone.

Pretty good

Bike went together pretty easy except for the shift cables where way out of whack but pretty happy with it so far

Solid bike, squeaky brakes and low tire clearance

Overall I’m happy with the build quality for the price. Unfortunately the brakes are unbearably squeaky and the rear tire clearance is so small compared to most other adventure / gravel frames, upgrading tire size is not that possible.

It's beautiful

Hello from Ukraine! Aventon Kijote is my first dropbar bike, it looks amazing and feels good for me. It was easy to assemble but front shifter adjustment is a little bit complicated. The only problem with this bike for me are squeaky breaks but I think it can be solved by replacing stock pads with the ceramic ones. P.S. I saw a video review of this bike where a guy told that the bar can't be properly fixed in the stock stem but it's not true, mine is fixed well.

First gravel bike

I bought the Kijote as my first gravel bike, and it really got me interested in gravel biking. Out of the box, there was little assembly needed. It did require some adjusting of the brakes and derailleurs, after that it shifted great.
