Product Description

First established in Wolverhampton in 1908 the Viking brand has a history, rich in the tradition of top quality road bikes. Quality, style and durability have always been the hallmarks of Viking cycles. Today's Vikings embody those core qualities and look to widen the range to suit the ever increasing demands of changing lifestyles. For 2012 the range includes: Road, Trekking, Comfort, Tandems, Urban Sport, E-Bikes and City Folders. No longer produced in Wolverhampton, each model now utilizes the technical developments of today's top manufacturing processes and lightweight tubing. Viking Peloton Road Race Bike 14 Speed The 2012 Viking Peloton will place you right at the front of the pack, constructed from lightweight aluminium tubing it has a more relaxed road race geometry common with many of the Viking road bikes. Shimano SIS downtube indexed shifters are fitted for effortless gear changing. Highlights include 32 hole Weinmann deep section alloy rims with quick release front hub and Shimano derailleurs. The larger 700C wheels with narrow 23C tyres and higher gearing make it easier to achieve and maintain higher speeds than a mountain bike or hybrid. The Peloton comes equipped with a 14 Speed transmission using a 14-28 freewheel on the rear and a 42-52 Prowheel double chainset. Powerful alloy calliper brakes are fitted to slow the bike in all conditions. An ideal first bike for mid-long distance training.

4.0 out of 5 stars Adequate for the Money 10 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase
I had been warned off this bike as the components aren't the best that could be used and that the weight is "optimistic". So far since buying it I have covered around 100miles and it has been a pleasure, the weight is spot on (just checked it with the bathroom scales!) for accuracy.
Assembling it was relatively easy, had an issue with the front brake binding on one side, but eventually sorted it.
The brakes are missing a "release" lever to slacken them for wheel fitting/removal but a good push got it into place.
Yes, the parts etc could be higher quality, but then so would the price be higher (duh!) I too am old fashioned, the last time I had a "racing bike" was at school and the shifters were down on the frame then, so I like the way they are positioned. The top tube feels slightly too long for the frame even though I have fairly long arms, but maybe that is the middle age spread/spare tyre getting in the way... ;)
Annoyances - there are holes for mudguards on the rear frame, but not on the forks! Also the bottle cage bolts are too short, couldn't get them to engage with my slightly chunky plastic cage so had to search the jars of bolts in the garage for a couple that would fit.
As I say these are annoyances but for the price paid can't really fault it, good value for money and making me enjoy cycling again after years of feeling like I was pedalling through sand on the mountain bike on the road.
A good bike to get you "back in the saddle"
