I bought this bike to explore the sport of mountain biking on the local single tracks. I had to adjust the rear mech slightly to avoid the chain from falling off and had to adjust the brake tension slightly. I also got some no-flat tubes and another layer if rubber between the tube and rim as the spoke needles poke out a bit and would have caused a flat on the first real bump. Of course this bike will not compare to one with better components that regularly start in the 700.00 range, but after about 150 miles of relatively rough terrain, it is holding up well. Gears are slow to respond and brakes need constant adjustments. Then again, it is a reliable hardtail that has helped me learn that i love mtb as much as road biking. I will be able to upgrade eventually, but this is the best 80.00 i have spent on a bike. I have dropped it, crashed it, jumped it, mash it at the back of the suv and it still keeps on ticking. If you’ll ride each day or on trails, get thw upgraded tubes, another layer of protection under the tube, and the brakes right. Differently, beat it up at the same time as you save the remaining 1,000.00 for the next level up. I also put a road bike seat on, but that is only because i had it. The one that came with it was fine.
I needed a bike to get home from work 9 milres home.i reaserched this bike and others .I took the bus to walmart with my list of bikes i likex on walmarts site.I looked at a 119 27.5 inch mongoose mounan bike then i saw 79.00 price on this one in grey took it off the upper rack gave it a once over test rode in store.I liked it bought it and a bell brand gell seat cover for 10.00 put gel seat cover on adjusted seat height and out the door i went riding 4 miles back home on sidwalkes uneven concrete and hopping up curbs bike handled great rides smooth only issue is ill be changing the derailer its not shimano as,advertised will be changing to shimano soon but when shifting through gears it wants to jump out of first gear other than that ibe been riding jome daily 9 miles with no problems seat is very uncomfortsble changing it to a cruser more soft comfortable seat .Overall i highly recomend this bike cant beat it or its value im very happy with my bike
With regard to the product, the bike is pretty sturdy and overall we’re pleased, BUT we originally went through the “Site to Store” process and the box containing the first bike was completely destroyed with holes, and missing/broken parts (reflectors: one broken and one with a missing spoke bolt), and most importantly, the rear wheel was completely warped so we had to return it to the store. We looked around the offerings in the outdoor garden center and were only able to find one other model like the one purchased and it had a note stating it was damaged (broken gears). The design of the bike in conjunction with lower than average cost, coupled with pretty decent reviews elsewhere still prompted us to look around again for this specific model, and luckily we found one inside the store in the toy department. We purchased it on the spot and I had my teenage son ride it around in the parking lot just to cycle through the gears and we’ve had it for a couple weeks now with several rides around the neighborhood and library trips. So far a decent bike for the money.
