Cheap beside other bikes
Later some problems with gears, sometimes it changes gear after some seconds
I highly recommend this bike!
Amazing bike! This is my first mountain bike, and I have fallen in love with it. I tried several bikes, including 27.5 plus tire bikes, a fat bike, and etc. I liked how the 29er rode the best. It gives me confidence on the trail. I'm a petite built female rider.
Light and nimble
Reasonably priced at $450
Gear switches lag a little
Ride it until it falls apart!
Great bike, after up grades it's no longer a novice bike!
Yet to find any after up grades
Includes Bolts For Drink Holders
Disc Brake System
Convenient Gear Stick Layout
On/Off Suspension Switch
Gear Switches Can Get Stuck
Love it overall
Lightweight and good breaking
Stock seat sucks
when i bought the bike i bought new grips and pedals as the pedals looked plastic and i wanted nicer grips, im looking to get some rock shox for the bike as people rate them highly, although ive just started with this as my first mtb its pretty good but id like to change it a fair bit like making the components stronger and more accurate with the gearing
lightweight & rides smoothly on a nice surface
down hill at speed with bumps makes this bike noisy
gears keep slipping
1 wash and the brakes squeal like a bitch
I bought this bike to do a quick adventure and loved it so much I kept it. I have upgraded literally every part on this bike but the frame and bars. I just love the way this bike fits and rides. It's steep head angel and skittish demeanor might not be what everyone wants but this nimble little 26'r is a blast on single track, climbs like a goat and is a great race bike.
I've smoked 29'r full suspension bikes everywhere from Porcupine Rim to Greenslick and I have to give the bike most of the credit. A great frame and platform to build a dream bike.
Also I rode this bike hard in Moab before I changed a thing on it and it did great.
stiff, steep head angle, tough, short chain stay, perfect geometry
a little heavy
I'm an XC rider and I immediately switched the tires on these to more grippy ones suitable for cross country racing. I suggest 2.25 up front and a 2.1 on the back. I'd recommend this bike if you're looking for a good entry level bike for trail riding, but the tires definitely have to go.Pros- Good bike to build onThank |
- Frame looks great
- Comfortable riding position
- good braking
- good acceleration
- smooth shiftingCons- tires are more for road use and only on dry hard pack trails
- fork isn't really for performance
- grips are a bit hard
- a bit on the heavier side at 31 lbs.
I ride everyday and this bike is amazing. Everything you would want in a bike is in this well equipped one for $650
Lightweight we'll equipped
Wheelbase a little short
Like most other people I changed the hand grips. I also upgrades the front shock to a rock shock
great bike it's holding up very well in my southern NJ location.
Good bike for budget riders.
My first mountain bike and it has been great. The 29er tires seem to go up rocks almost by themselves. The only bad things are that I had to change out the seat, the rails bent. The tires lasted about 8 months on rocky trails. The grips weren't too comfortable so I changed those out as well. Those are relatively minor things when you look at the whole picture.
Rolls over almost anything, relatively light.
Entry level gear
Yes I would. If I could have afforded a better component group I would have. In light of that, I love my bike and ride it a lot. The 29er smooths out the trails and rolls fast. Just enough suspension to ease the roots and rocks. The wheels have remain true despite the rider(6'4" & 245#) A little slower in the corners than my Trek 820 with 26 inches wheels, however My laps times are the same on either bike. And you learn the bike soon enough. Shifters have functioned without fail and the brake lock up when I want and modulate well under hard braking.
rolls over stuff, rides smooth, lighter (mine is 29.7lbs) and has held up well so far.
It's entry level so do not beat it up to bad. seat, petals, grips are entry level as well. You will likely changes these out anyways
