Bought this steed for my daughter, great bike for the price. Rear gears were slipping a bit when new, however the gears are ok now as they seem to have ‘worn in’.

Hit’n the Trails

Trail riding beginner in my early 40’s. This bike is a great place to start. Hardtail and the front suspension is responsive. Microshift drivetrain is amazing and as a novice I’m learning to get the hang of it. I chose the Satin Slate w/Grey lettering paint job, LOVE IT. I chose the “ship to dealer” option for order delivery(local Licensed Specialized dealer), it was hassle-free. The bike assembly was professionally done and I recommend that route when ordering online. I’m having fun with it and cannot wait to travel and hit the trails in Ocala and Gainesville, FL

Just the color, not as the image

Hi, cannot really review the bike, did not tried it. Ordered mine orange, the color looked bright and awesome. Quite disappointed when it arrived, it is more like a salmon orange. Not an ugly color, just not what the picture and my expectations where. Even the bike shop warned me when he received it. Now I'm not sure I'll try another as I am done waiting on a bike that might not be the color I expect. I understand it is a photo, and screen, and all of it, but on a Mac and Android color is way off.

Don't buy the base models

This is probably the best entry level bike you cand find, but if you're planning on riding this more than 2 o 3 times per week or doing some crazy stuff on the trails, you 100% need to buy the elite model. That is by far a better bang for your buck.

Great bike for everyday riding

Bought it for my son. He is absolutely loving it. It's a beautiful bike, with components good enough for what he will use it for. Hopefully he will not grow out of it for a few years.
