Good bike. Does NOT come with 700C wheels/tires. Comes with 26" wheels and 1.50 road type tires. Very fast. Easy to assemble. Straight forward "Old School" kind of a mountain bike.

Review 2 for Tour de France Prologue Elite 17.5" Mountain Bike

Not a bad bike at all, great for the price

First off this bike has some pretty good looks in my opinion. Its got the matte black finish with silver lettering and design. It comes almost fully assembled; all you have to do is install the bars, front wheel, pedals, kickstand, and seat. The bike will require a tune up because the gears were a little out of sync but i guess that is expected when buying from a department store. The only thing that I had a problem with is the seat was not very comfortable and the grips offer very little cushioning and support. These were easy fixes and should not deter you from buying this bike. If you are an avid rider, then maybe this is not for you. But I use it for fitness and it more than satisfies my need. It was a shot in the dark for me buying it with nobody offering reviews, but it worked out in the end. Very pleased with it!

Review 3 for Tour de France Prologue Elite 17.5" Mountain Bike

Add $150 to the price-tag before riding

Overall, this is a decent bike. However, you should anticipate approximately an extra $150 in expenditures before you can even ride due to the poor quality of materials (tires/service).
When I opened the box, nuts, bolts, and other parts were scattered throughout. One of the smaller boxes inside (meant to hold these parts etc.) was torn and damaged - as if it were jammed into the box. The assembly instructions are not tailored to this bike specifically. There are several parts included with the bike that are not listed in the "Parts" section of the assembly manual - which made assembly quite frustrating. The bolt for the seat stem was covered in gunk that would not allow me to tighten fully - I had to clean and lubricate these bolts before I could assemble.
The tires/tubes that come with this bike are horrible. It was shipped to me with a punctured front tube and, according to the bike service technician, was "outfitted with the incorrect spacer for that type of double-walled rim, leaving it prone to puncture". I had to buy two new spacers (rubber liners) and two new tubes (anticipating the back tire will puncture soon; $50 total).
The tires are thin 'street-bike' style tires - so don't anticipate a thick and durable mountain-bike tire.
Additional service on the bike (recommended for all of these bikes) was approximately $90, bringing my total up to $140 before I even rode the bike.
Pros:
Shipped within 3 business days.

I'd recommend a friend to shop around for a comparable bike that won't require such repairs from the get-go.
