Polygon Helios 300 (2011)



While surveying some road bike. I notice this road bike by Polygon. This bike come with almost full set Shimano Tiagra 9 speed components. This bike also comes with a carbon fork which is very common even for entry level road bikes nowadays. The handle and brake angle is also positioned higher so a beginner rider don't need to bend too much. I inquired the boss and he told me this bike cost about RM2,400.

In my opinion, this is a very good price. This bike is also a step higher than the Helios 200. If you want to shift to racing from mountain bike and don't want to invest a huge amount, this bike is also worth considering other than the Helios 200. Although it is a bit expensive, you get full set of Shimano Tiagra which is one step lower than the famous Shimano 105.

    One experience road biker told me, it is either you go for a good frame first then upgrade the components or go for good components then upgrade the frame later. Which ever suits the budget you have available
