The Thunder is another ALTON road bike that uses the new DP-780 technology. The DP-780 tubing provides more strength and durability than an equal volume of typical chromoly 4130 frames. This means a quality bike that will be resilient throughout the years can be made available to you at a more affordable cost than previously expected.
The THUNDER is the ideal intermediate between a beginner bicycle and top tier performance racer. The DP-780 racing frame has the 14 speed integrated shifters to allow more of a racing vibe. It climbs with ease and provides stability through less than ideal roads. The specs are in the range of a high-end entry-level suitable for all beginning and intermediate racers without breaking your budget.

Not a good first impression
This review is from: ALTON USA Thunder Road/Racing Bike Shimano Smart 16 Speed 700C. Dark Green/Yellow 550mm DP-780 Frame
Pros: The price was good.
Cons: No assembly instructions, the rims are not straight. Will need to take new bike in for service to fix things before it can even be ridden.
Other Thoughts: All things considered would not purchase this bike again, the lack of instructions and the fact that the rims have a "wobble" without it being used yet do not make me feel confident that this is a good investment, I will update if my opinion changes.
