Insight 2

Our Insight line of road bikes have long been rider favorites due to their versatility and ease of use. The Insight 2 continues this tradition of great performance hybrids stacked with features.

This year's bike still has its light and stable aluminum frame and fork, efficient 700c road wheels, a comfortable flat-bar cockpit for an upright riding stance, and quality Shimano drivetrain components. We don't like to tinker too much with success, but for this model year we did make a significant upgrade: disc brakes!

The braking duties are now taken care of by powerful Tektro mechanical discs with 160mm rotors. This enhances the Insight 2's performance even more, allowing one-finger modulation and more control in wet conditions. For charity riders, commuters, and just tooling around the neighborhood, the Insight 2 is a proven performer.

This is a fantastic bike for its price point. Lightweight, durable, and high quality components. I would highly recommend thus for anyone who wants to get into city/road cycling without breaking the bank, or needs something for their daily commute.

Amazing Bike

Review by Selva
Overall Quality

I got this bike 2 weeks ago. Assembling was a breeze.
As advertised the bike is light weight and rides smooth. This is my very first bike and I'm glad that I went with this one!
The only issue I have is the few gears rub making noise. I would probably take it to local bike shop for tune-up.

Amazing service! Quality product!

Review by Tom Wynn Photo
Overall Quality

I received the bike and put it together right away.
Everything was good except the disc brakes needed adjustments which was tedious but figured it out. Works amazing!

Only issue was that both the wheels are a bit wobbly and slow me down much.

I contacted Warranty and spoke with Cameron over the phone. Exceptional world-class service.

Cameron went above and beyond my expectation of warranty assistance. He made it so fast and easy in solving my issue for me.

To keep anyone from abusing the warranty, I won't say what the solution was but I'm sure it's public info.

Great bike, shipping and service

Review by Aaron
Overall Quality

The bike arrived beautifully packed. Better than shops have even done when I ship my race bike to events. The attention to detail paid off, because the bike arrived in great shape. Although there was a blemish on the downtube, the paint looked good, wheels were true, and the derailleur was straight. Assembly was easy. Everything fit together perfectly and the bike rides and shifts smoothly. The brakes are a bit weak, but still better than what I'd expect from a bike at this price point. Thanks DB for making such a quality affordable product.

Very happy

Review by kenny

Got this bike 3 weeks ago and have put my GT away. This is a very comfortable riding bike and easy to ride. I ride with my 2 1/2 year old in a seat behind me and my 1 year old in a trailer behind the bike and can ride all day with comfort.
