    I have not had a chance to take it out on anything other than pavement so far. I will give it a fair test July 4th weekend when I head home to the Shenandoah Valley. I had a great experience with the staff in Vienna and will be back for everything in the future as I start upgrading.

    I just bought this bike on Friday, and today I picked it up. It is the first bicycle I have owned since I was a teenager. I just turned 40 and have an almost 2 year old daughter. I had gotten very out of shape, so it was a gift to myself to help me get into better shape, so I can be around for her and my wife. This bike is very well built for the price. I was a bit worried when I first started looking for one, that I would have to spend a ridiculous amount of money to get something good. This is an excellent entry level bike, but I feel that it could last me a very long time. Thank you to the staff at the cypress location for all of their help and advice. I am looking forward to many a fun ride.

    This is my first bike. After consulting with the guys at the shop, I was convinced that this was the bike for me. I'm 43 YO 6'5"-250 lbs., the bike handles great. I like to ride hard. I've taken some serious falls and the bike is a good as new. If you can spare a few more bucks, get rear suspension - regardless which trail your ride, it will be a more comfortable ride. Moreover, I did some research, I could not find a better price. Purchased at the Southlake, TX store- Great guys.

        This bike is very fast on the single tracks, and handles well. Climbing steep hills is great with the 27 speed trans. I also love the hydraulic brakes. At first I was uncomfortable with the extra wide handle bars and crank diameter, but once I got used to them, the bike is that much more agile. the only downside to such a wide crank is occasionally hitting roots and rocks, and timing pedal strokes to get over logs and large rocks.

        This is my first mountain bike I have owned it for a month and gone riding every weekend. It has held up well on some pretty rough terrain (smaller drops, big rocks, etc.) Shifting is good and smooth. Climbs very good and descends well. Only problem so far is the plastic pedals are coming apart. Its a Good Bike.

        Comments:

        I'm a true beginner with an MX backround. Getting a Mountain Bike was a compromise. I did quite a bit of research because I didn't want to drop $2k on my first venture, yet didn't want something I'd grow out of in 2 months. This fit the bill perfectly. Bought it Saturday, took it out today. Suspension was responsive and the 29" wheels had no issue going over bigger rocks.My only complaint is the pedals. I recommend getting pedals right away. My feet kept slipping on the stock pedals
