*For the price a great entry level bike to get you on the trails.
*Nicely put together frame, the welds and paint are spot on.
*Decent Components to ride until upgrades are needed, Shimano Alivio/Deore.
*SunTour XCR V4 w/lockout. I'm only 150Lbs. this fork works fine for me, most people I know 175Lbs it just doesn't work for them unless you upgrade the spring and at that point just upgrade the entire fork. Don't forget SunTour's loyalty program, you can typically save $100 of an upgraded shock!
*KS rear shock. The lockout actually works!
*Tektro mech disk brakes are serviceable after adjusting, but once I get into anything technical I'll be wanting to upgrade them.
*Pedals are dirt cheap old school style, upgrade immediately.
*KS rear shock. Not the best performance on rougher terrain but serviceable in tandem with 29er tires. Will be replaced down the road.
I was looking for a bike to get back into mountain biking that would not break the bank, so far I'm quite pleased with the FSX 29One. I've only done XC and a few beginner single track trails, the bike has held up with no issues and is quite comfortable to ride. I'll update after I get my feet wet and start working my way up in difficulty. All in all I think it's a great platform to get into the sport or back into in my case. Well made frame with good usable entry level components, a decent bike to build as you ride and have it progress with your abilities. I paid $398.
