lightweight, looks nice, decent components
tires are not knobby enough
I love this bike - super fun, very fast and can handle pretty much anything
fast ride, great climber, lightweight. Style - I like the gray with hints of orange - orange hubs too.
I replaced my chain with a more "heavy duty" one. I snapped the stock chain in a very routine gear shift and could not make the repair on the trail. Never wanted a hike like that again. Have to adjust shock setting on the shock which is challenging when approaching technical sections. I went with a tubeless, nobby tire for better Front Range (CO) riding
This review is for the AL 100 (not the Elite). This website didn't give me that option.
Yes, if you need a little extra nudge to make a purchase for a really great full suspension MTB, this bike is for you!
This bike gives you 100mm travel using FOX suspension and is very responsive.
Also, for a 29'er, it's lighter than most other bikes on the market.
This is by far one of the most stable full suspension bike platforms I've ever ridden.
very minor, but the reflectors will be destroyed after your first wipeout.
If anything, For the value of the bike, I think they could have put a better crankset on the bike.
