Don't use as rental
Favorable customer feedback if we can set up without breaking something
terrible for rentals - too many seat adjustment problems. always in repair
This bike is an awesome beginner bike. No expensive components, although a drawback, means you can use and abuse this bike while you learn and not feel guilty about scratching it. The frame is durable and plenty snappy to make any trail enjoyable. This bike wont do you as many favors as a $5000 bike, but it definitely wont hold you back.ProsDurableThank |
Relatively solid components
Good bike if your not into bumpy trails or pump tracks.
Priced well. I got mine for $600 from Bikes and Moore in Hopkinsville, KY. Rides well and not overly heavy. Good grips, derailers, and bars.
The SR shock is garage. I had to adjust it to the max and it still bottomed out on me and I'm only 195 lbs. First thing to go get replaced.
I would recommend this bike. But be aware, once you get it, you will want to make several quick upgrades to make it a smoother ride.ProsPrice. My entry bike into mountain biking. Serves as a nice XC/Trail hardtail or a bike to ride gently while with your family.ConsHorrible stock SR Suntour XCR fork, Should be updated quickly. Head tube angle of 71 degrees is too steep for any serious fun.Thank |
Lightweight, smooth gear selection, handles well, front air suspension lockout
cheep pedals, a must to upgrade
It's my first mountain bike as an adult. I love it. As soon as my cracked rib heals I'll be hitting the trails again.
Very solid bike.
Love this bike and would definitely recommend it.
Good starter bike, easy to get used to and rolls over roots, rocks, and other things easily. Easily to upgrade when you're ready.
A little heavy, stock fork leaves a lot to be desired. Components should be updated over time.
Fun bike, love its ride-ability and multifunctional capabilities to take on the trail or a paved path.
The price is a definite plus on this bike. You get quite a bit of bike for our buck. High quality with a more reasonable price.
Would love a bit more adjustable suspension on the fork.
I converted mine to rigid with a PRO carbon fork. It was a good bikeProsGreat cross country geo, light, eccentric pinch bolt BBConsRS Recon is a bit heavyThank |
ProsGreat starter bikeConsNone at the momentThank |
The fork is not as responsive as a rigid carbon. Once there is a load on it it pretty much just stays there. If you are riding smooth packed flat trails then this is the bike for you. For a little higher price point just buy something in the Fuse line.
Component group is junk
I like mine a lot, in my price range, very fun to ride, but I will be upgrading my components
Price 29 in wheels, good feel
Derailer is not very reliable, need a lot of adjustment
I have been riding for 25 years and have had expensive full suspension bikes. This is my favorite bike that I have had, 29" rims are awesome and makes a handling and control difference over 26" and rolls over things with ease. Great bike for the money! I got the 2015 on labor day weekend on sale for $630 with no sales tax(unfortunately the blue and neon green color scheme) but I took some stickers off and got it dirty and it is growing on me. Love it
Light weight, great geometry, low cost, good components,
May i ask you?
I have bought brand new one, and during the testing i noticed that there is some shaking during the wheel spinning.
Seller told me that it is fine, could you check on your bicycle as well?
Good trail bike. Comfortable.
Fork less than desirable. Doesn't soak up the bumps too well.
Overall nice well balanced rig. Fun to blast up and down some singletrack!
Great all around trail bike
Need better grips
Forks are ok but could use an upgrade for tougher terrain
overall it's a great bike i took it down some single track and i did ok
Shifts great and saddle is comfortable
could be alittle better to pedal
I highly recommend this bike to anyone who is looking to start mountain biking on the regular. It is well worth the money
The bike rides well, the geometry feels great for my 6 foot frame. Handles all kinds of terrain without issue. Hydraulic brakes are awesome!
Doesn't need 27 speeds. They could have built this bike as a 2x9 and I'd be fine with it.
Affordable, durable, and capable. This bike has seen it all from cross country to downhill, and is still going strong. The components are the perfect blend and have performed flawlessly.
Cheap fork, wrecked it in its first season.
