Is aleoca really lousy?

Haha, been looking around for roadies, then stumbled upon this aleoca bike at GIANT supermarket. Its one of the new 2010 models, cost about $638, but heard ppl saying that aleoca really cannot make it.. well, heres the link, the components are nt yet stated but i've emailed them already

http://aleoca.com/aleoca_bicycles201...vallo%20X.html

but somehow, why do the brake lever seems far away? usually the brakes will be on top of the drops, but why this bike seem to have the brakes at another bar infront of the drops? means if i wan to brake, i must move my hands further forward to grab the bar infornt?


--EDIT--
Perhaps im wrong, the brakes are as normal, if i zoom in, but the black thingy beside the brakes look funny, maybe they are the shifters?

some people said that microshift can be compared to the shimano's dura ace. and if you dont plan to resell ur bike, like its for personal use and no plan of sellin it off, microshift is a steal, cheap and good.

Really? But not really sure about Microshift. But i don't think you should buy the aleoca. Up to you to decide

lol I think Aleoca is Malaysian brand. Just because they wear Italy tee doesn't mean the bikes are made in Italy.

Never buy hobby stuff from department stores. Hobby stuff must be bought from hobby shops.
