The bike seat cover is designed for narrow bike seats, not for wide saddles. The bike seat cushion is suitable for most bikes. Please measure the size of your bicycle seat before purchasing and confirm that the cover fits your requirements. The Legion L500 is a fully park, street or dirt worthy freestyle BMX bike that offers everything a rider could need from Beginner level curb jumps all the way up to advanced aerial tricks on a quarter pipe. The height of the rider should be 5'8". And up. The L500 features a full 4130 chromo frame, a mid-BB shell, and aremovable brake mounts. The top tube is 21” long. The L500's drivetrain has a 25T aluminum chain ring and mid sealed bearing bottom brackets. The wheelset has a wide aluminum double Wall 36H rim with a female front hub and a 9T Cog sealed bearing free coaster rear hub. The 4130 chromo handlebar and fork are joined by a 50mm stem and thread less sealed headset for maximum steering performance.
👤For children with more experience. It is a BMX that is meant to ride standing.
👤My 12 year old grandson saved up money to buy this. He has been riding it for a month and has not been able to ride it for a week because of the pedals not moving. He is devastated and looks like we will have to take in someone who repairs bikes. It is a high price to pay for one month of riding, so I hope this doesn't happen to anyone else.
The steel mountain frame is ready to hit the trail. The fat tire bike has 26 inch wheels that fit riders 5 feet 4 inches to 6 feet 2 inches in height. The aluminum mountain-style frame has hydro-formed tubing. There are 16 speed Trigger Shifts with a drivetrain. Disc brakes provide all-condition stopping and precise speed control. Extra stability is provided by 26x4 inch fat all-terrain tires on 3 inch wide drilled alloy rims.
👤The bike was easy to build and was perfect for my husband. There is a A few weeks ago he was peddling down a busy road and heard a clunk, then his bike tipped over. He didn't get hit by a car because he was close to the sidewalk. There is a He lost a pedal when the nondrive side of the bottom bracket snapped, but he was able to get it back once traffic calmed down. We both accepted that everything that could go wrong in 2020 has gone wrong. We had owned the bike for about 8 months and it was still under warranty, so maybe we could get a part from Mongoose to fix it. There is a We decided to buy the part and make the repair ourselves after repeated attempts to contact Mongoose were ignored. The 120x167mm bottom bracket is the only one that holds it all together. The shell is 120mm and the spindle is 167mm. We ordered the part from Walmart and never received it. The only other option is to order it fromAlibaba and wait for it to arrive. Not good. There is a If your bike breaks don't expect them to fix it or honor the warranty. The bike broke and my husband was very lucky to not be hurt. The part that could fix the bike is not easy to find. There is a I wouldn't recommend buying this bike.
👤I think I have one of the first ones, and have had it for a few days now. I was looking for a better deal between the fat tire bikes and the more expensive ones. This one fit the bill. It's a good starting point for someUpgrading while getting a aluminum frame and drilled wheelset I was surprised that the frame and fork are made from a different material than the 7000 series. Some tubes are sculpted or straight. The sealed bearing unit is the only one that is rebuildable, unlike some of the cheaper Mongooses. The hubs are made of aluminum and should work. 9 and 10 speed freewheels are available, but the rear hub is a screw on type. If you want to upgrade to a falcon freewheel, you will need a freewheel tool. The aluminum arms and steel chainrings seem to work well with the crankset. The big ring was heavy and I didn't use it. The tread pattern on the tires is similar to panaracer fat b. The seatpost is heavy and the pedals are poor quality. The saddle is not bad. Stem and bars are great, but I wish they were wider. We will see how the breaks are after a long break. The drivetrain is not very high as one would expect from a bike of that price. This should be a great snow bike with a few modifications. The box weight was a low 36.6 pounds. After a ghetto tubeless conversion, the bike is down to 33.4 LB., with all other components stock, including tires. A 10x2 speed drivetrain using existing crank and front derailleur, new pedals and brake levers is next on the list. A good inexpensive bike can be used out of the box or improved with better parts to make a really great fat bike.
Comes with a kickstand, chain guard, and freestyle pegs. The frame of the mountain-style frame is aluminum. 21 speeds allow you to adapt to your terrain, while front and rear disc brakes give you extra stopping power. A threadless headset and aluminum 3-piece crankset are easy to maintain. Extra-large 29 x 2.35-inch tires give you extra grip and stability. Adult riders can use 29-inch wheels.
👤I bought the Impasse because it fit my budget for a full suspension mountain bike that I could grow with. The bike was a bit of a gamble, because of the detail specifications and reviews. It's garbage if you don't buy it. I know from experience that some people expect too much. The reviewer should give a background on what they want to use the item for. You can't get anything for $300 from experience. I know that you can get a 1000 dollar item through research and sales. I'm 63 years old and weigh 220 lbs. I ride through the woods trails with some downhills and small drop-offs, sometimes on gravel roads. Downhill competition, no extreme, bite your lip, 3o mph. I wanted to replace my 26" bike with a 29" bike that has disc brakes front and rear and v-brakes. The cheapest bike you can buy is a full suspension bike. You can get up to $220 with only front disc brakes. In the spring of the year, you can find a full suspension bike with disc brakes for less than $300. It's not realistic for anyone to expect a $1000 bike. Maybe $500 bike. You can easily approach a bike of between $900 and 1200 dollars with some upgrades. The tires need to be replaced in order to upgrade to this bike. $70 was the cheapest I could find for tires and tubes. The cheapest. Sky is the limit. If you want to buy a new bike with new technology, you can spend $70+ for tires and tubes. The Impasse is entered. There is a description of the packaging and delivery. The bike was poorly packed. There was no packing in the box to protect the delicate pieces. The bike was partially assembled with the front wheel tie wrapped to the frame and the handlebars strapped to the front forks. The box had a bubble wrap around it, foam around it, and plastic protectors for the hubs that were broken. There were some scratches and rubs on the bike. You are at the mercy of how the shipping company handles it, because I have found no other way to get this bicycle except through mail order. Poor packaging would result in scratches, buffs, bent or lost parts, which would cause some returns of the bike, so it would be better if the manufacturer made better packaging. The bike price could be the same if more cost for packaging was added. My bike was manufactured in April of 2015 and was found on the down-tube or seat-post near the crank. You need this and the model number. If you need to have work done. The owners manual covers all of the bikes in the department store, so be patient to find the section you need for your model. I would have liked a shorter owners manual with more info specific to this model, but this would increase cost and inventory problems with the manufacturer. The manual helps keep the cost down. If there are no damaged parts, assembly is not really difficult. They are easy to adjust if you follow the manual. To make sure the disc is centered in the caliper, spin the wheels. I had to make adjustments to the rear derailleur to make it shift properly. If you are unsure about being able to do this sort of work, you can take it to a local bike shop and they will set it up for you for a fee. That is a difference between buying your own savings and buying from a bike shop that will check the bike before it is sold to you. You can either take it back to the shop and spend more money, or you can learn how to maintain and adjust it yourself. It's true if you buy a $200 bike or a $2000 bike. There is a The front fork has a simple spring tube that is adequate for light off roading. It uses a threadless headset. I have never owned a bike that cost as much as this one, so I might replace it with a RockShox XC 28 fork. Would like to know what it feels like. The shock is pre-load only. It can be adjusted to stiffen or loosen your ride. There is no direct replacement for this shock. The closest thing I can find is a Mountain Bike Air Rear Shock. It has an air ride and a lockout. You can ride the bike up a hill without being bothered by the Bounciness if you make it a hard tail. I crank the spring to get this done after getting off my 26. I would like to try this again. The STOCK Shock is 150mm or 6 feet long, that's the problem with this upgrade. The shock is 6'5" long. I'll let you know if I upgrade this, because it will change the geometry of the bike. All the upgrades so far. The total cost is $220. The bike cost was added to by this. A bike worth close to $900. You can do it a little at a time, while riding, instead of having to fork out $500 right now. You may never want to upgrade this bike, even if you wanted to. I might upgrade the shock and fork in the future because I have never had one. The suspension works well to smooth out ruts and pot holes in rural and country roads, as well as gravel/dirt roads, and wooded area trails. It works well for this type of riding. The longer you ride, the suspension gets better. The Impasse feels like a decent bike for taking on some dirt roads and light trails. I wouldn't ride it on a hardcore downhill path or do jumps with it, but it can go over roots and things very well. There is a The disc brakes work well. The bike is only $280 because they are half to one third the cost of premium brakes. When the pads wear out, I may upgrade them to the BR-M416A or AvidBB7's. If you want to get all new brakes, you can get them for $50 to $60. Again, approaching the cost of a better bicycle. The quiet and fast change of the gears on the rear derailleur is a feature. The tourney is called the Shamano Tourney TX. The entry level derailleur is made from aluminum and steel. The hubs look like WheelMaster. This bike is made in China and has Chinese aluminum hubs and wheels. The double wall rim should take some punishment. The spokes are painted. The tires are not named. The maximum pressure is 65 PSI. The load is 198 lbs. If you were sitting on both wheels and tires, that would be 386 pound person. I weigh 220 lbs. Is that going to be a problem? Not so far. What is the rating for the rims? There is a The ProWheel has 175mm long ALLOY arms, square taperBB, and riveted steel chain rings, all painted black. It's easy to upgrade or change the chain rings with the square taper Bottom Bracket. I need 180mm arms for my height, but I'm not sure about the gear size yet. There is a As for the size of the bike? This is a medium frame because of it's geometry and tires. See below. The wheel base, front wheel axle to rear wheel axle is 42-3/8" from the ground to the top of the seat post. This is usually the size of the dog. The lowest part of the frame at the seat post is 28-1/4. From the back of the handlebars to the center of the seat post is 20-7/8" It is recommended that you have at least 2 inches of clearance between your crotch and the bike frame when standing with the bike. When standing in front of the seat, my inseam is 30 and I can stand on the ground to the top of the tube height. It was perfect for me. My age is 26. The seatpost is too short for me and I need at least 13-3/4" for peddling uphill. You will usually lower your seatpost by a couple of inches. This seat height is acceptable for going downhill. I go uphill and downhill as well. There is a Now for the ride. It rides well. The 29'er tires make riding on rough surfaces easier. It's easier to ride through grassy fields and the woods on a mountain bike. I will be replacing the seat with a wider gel seat because it is surprisingly comfortable. The bike is light and portable. For the competion, the weight is roughly 47 lbs. The cost difference of high-priced bikes in keeping the weight down around 36-38 lbs is using more costly components like carbon fiber, better aluminum, etc. If you ride this or any bike for a month or two, you will lose 10 lbs and save money. The frame is made of aluminum, along with the handle bars, seat post, crank arms, yoke of the front fork, and calipers. The levers are made of aluminum and plastic. The bikes in this price range are typical. The bike will perform closer to that $500 price range bike if the upgrade to the EF 51 Shifter/Brake Lever combo is done before the end of the year. I have used the SureGrip Max shifters for years and this is not a must upgrade. I would like to try the Trigger Shifters. The combo of the brake levers and shifters will free up the handlebar space and make it look like a $500 bike. There are people who complain about where to put a water bottle holder. Most mountain bikes do not have a place for water bottles. They have a backpack hydration system. The tool kit made by Topeak would be a good purchase for any bike owner since the bike uses all metric fasteners. This bike will be right up there with a $1000 bike if there are more upgrades mentioned. If you are concerned about weight, carbon fiber seatpost, handlebars, new shock/fork supsension, you should contact us. The weight can be brought down to a respectable 36-38 lbs. You will have a total of a little more than $500, but only one step at a time if you want to, instead of $500 or higher all at once. The Mongoose Impasse is a competent light to medium duty full suspension mountain bike that is fun to ride and sits for $280. If this review was helpful to you, please leave a thank you and I will know if I have wasted your time or not. I will know if I should write another review or not. I would be happy to help you if you have any questions. I would like to have this help before I buy mine. It was still a good decision. Happy trails!
The minimum rider height is 48 inches and the frame and fork is made of steel. Simple single-speed riding can be achieved with back brakes only, 40x16T and 1-piece forged steel 170mm cranks. The cast aluminum mag wheels have sealed bearings. There are cable detanglers for handlebar spins and U-brakes for secure stops. Comes with a kickstand, chain guard, and freestyle pegs.
👤Garbage. There is a It was literally. After a month, it's in the trash. The bike stunk. I bought this to teach my child how to ride a bike. It's a good idea to have a bike with a mongoose on it. That bike was awesome when we were kids. Apparently not the same today. After unpacking and putting it together, I threw the giant box away and took it out for a few learning sessions. I wonder if I put it together wrong. There is a The fork and frame were bent when I took a closer look. The top cross bar of the frame was welded to the right of the bottom, making it impossible for my child to ride the bike. It's a shame. I felt bad. We went to the bike shop and bought a bike that was straight. The little one had 888-282-0465 first time on a decent bike for the little one was night and day. There is a Dear manufacturer, please contact me. I don't want to be contacted and I won't pull this review down. Your stuff is garbage. Get it together. Is that a mammal? It's like a crummy-bike company with a sticker and dumb people. Does that rhyme? No. I don't care. Your stuff is garbage.
👤This was dropped from 2 to 1 star. The front tire doesn't take air, so you have to buy a new tube. The brake controller can't be moved once the rear tire has air. Will need lower profile tires on the seat post. You should put another $50 into this bike just to use it. There is a I wanted a better model than walmart was selling. The seat post is 7 inches long, all the way up from the crank shaft. My 11 year old has legs that are almost 40 degrees higher than parallel when pedaling. This is a 16 inch bike with a 350mm post. The bottom of the rotor was bent back from transit damage and needed to attach the brake cable. The foot pegs are a joke. A kid would break their foot if they actually used them. Most reviewers state that the rear brake setup is not up to par.
👤I've rebuilt my own mountain bikes and assembled a number of kids' bikes. My 9 year-old is able to ride the bike I purchased for my 12 year-old, as am I. It was easy to assemble and all parts were undamaged. The rear brake works as expected on this model bike. There is a My kids are not doing tricks or riding ramps or rails, they are riding in the street and occasionally off-road at the bmx park, and this is a good value if you are using it for that. There is a The seat post is bmx-height, which is low since you're rarely sitting on it, and if you plan on using this more for just biking around, invest in a longer seat post. There is a If your bike is damaged on receipt, it's on the delivery company.
A hybrid bike is good for neighborhood rides. 700c wheels fit riders of 5 feet 7 inches to 10 feet tall. Schwinn alloy hybrid frame with fit geometry and suspension fork provide a smooth ride. 21 speed shifters with rear derailleurs offer precise gear changes. Extra comfort is provided by suspension seat post, Schwinn hybrid saddle, and ergonomics. The rear carrier has a lot of cargo space, but it also protects you from splashes.
👤I wanted to wait to post a review on this bike until I had a chance to actually develop an opinion beyond the initial impression. A little more detail and background was added. I am a male in my 30s who is getting back into cycling after a 15 year hiatus. I weigh 220 lbs. I am coming from a very sedentary life with four kids and a desk job. I do not have a very active lifestyle. I decided to get back into cycling to increase my activity level after finishing school. Labor Day 2015 was when I started riding again. Over a month. I've put over 200 miles on this bike. I was down on riding for about two weeks waiting for a repair, but it was not bad. There is a Let's start at the beginning. I picked this up on an Amazon Deal of the Day for a great price. I was considering a number of bikes, and this price was the one that tipped the scale for me. The model took less than a month to arrive after it was heavily ordered. When it arrived, it was packaged well and undamaged. The general instructions are vague due to how generic they were, but I assembled the bike myself. It took me about 30 minutes to get it assembled, however a lot of adjustment was needed, as I consider myself to be very handy and capable when it comes to this type of work. When attempting to shift or skip gears when powered into the pedals, the front and rear derailleurs were not setup well. I did both the wheels at the LBS, but at first I didn't know how much trued they needed. The brakes needed to be adjusted a lot and I spent a lot of time tweaking and tuning them over the first week. I would take it into the LBS from the beginning. There is a The assembly was not bad at the beginning, but over the next few weeks it changed. I am happy with the overall features of the bike, but I'm still debating on keeping it orUpgrading, the seat is large and comfortable, the fenders are plastic but effective, and the gears are helpful to get through the various ups and downs. The tires and tubes are fairly low end, but have served me well so far, I only had to fix one flat tire. The brakes are effective and the hand grip shifters are easy to use. The front fork and seat suspension is not very strong, but it loosens up as I ride, so it may be broken in in another 200 miles. I had to adjust the rotation on the handgrips to make my arms and wrists straighter while I ride because the handlebars are very variable and it took me some time to get the right adjustments. I adjusted my seat height and saddle depth for a more comfortable ride and feel this bike would be a good fit for anyone between 5'8" tall and 6'3" tall. It is worth the time to adjust the handlebars and saddle. There are some great videos on the internet. There is a The main additions I have made are a head light and tail light, handlebar mirror, mini pump, tool kit and patch kit, pannier bags, reflective stickers and pin stripping tape. There is a I am very happy with this bike, but there are two things that worry me. The rating was brought down by these things. There is a The bike is heavy, around 40 lbs. It is not a deal breaker to me. I feel like carrying more weight makes you a stronger rider. This weight is due to the sturdy construction which is where my concern is. The frame tubes on this bike are larger than most and are more round. This means that accessories on the bike may not fit. Something to be aware of before purchasing is not a deal breaker. There is a The quality and construction of the Wheel Rims is the big one. The bike had a double walled 700c x 38mm, 24h alloy wheel rim with 4 gauge steel spokes. The Rim is a standardly constructed Rim and it is light. I blew a spoke at 160 miles/ two weeks in. This is a road miles or paved trails with only a few significant bumps to speak of. I took it into the LBS and had them replace the spoke and true wheel. I blew two more spokes within the next 20 miles, but I couldn't make it home because I blew three more. I had to walk the rest of the way home after the wheel was no longer usable. I was told to buy new wheels after I contacted my LBS. I paid for the bike, but the low end spoke wheels will cost me more than I paid for. This was 195 miles and just under three weeks of use. I was not happy. I contacted Schwinn. They told me that they would send me a new rear wheel for free. It's nice, right? The only issue was that they didn't have the wheel in stock. They asked me to give them a few days to find the wheel, if not they would send me a different model that would work with my bike. I received an email two days later saying they had shipped a package. They decided to send me a set of wheels from another model of the same size to make sure I had a matching set of wheels after they couldn't find a replacement wheel for the Discover. They were upgraded from a 24 spoke wheel to a 32 spoke wheel at no additional cost to me. My bike is back after a full tune up. The new wheels were running smoothly. I just finished a 35 mile ride and was very happy. Schwinn stood behind their product. There is a The tube stem length is the only concern I have for the originals and the new ones. The stem of the tubes is a little bit longer than a standard 32mm stem. My LBS says they can't find tubes with a stem that long. I bought a pack of stem extensions which will allow me to purchase the standard 32mm stem size at my store or on Amazon without having to worry about the extra length or purchase specialty tubes. You could get by without the extensions, but they make changing a tube a bit quicker and easier. I have ridden this bike up to 42mph and it felt rock solid. I haul around 30 lbs of extra gear and groceries in good weather. There is a I think this is a solid bike that is made by a company that stands behind their products. It is a cruiser that is comfortable to ride. The 21 speeds give it flexibility for changing terrain and fitness levels, the cargo rack and fender give it a good look, and it looks good. If you are looking, I recommend this bike. There is a Also, note: There is a If you liked the review, the items I added to the bike have been reviewed as well. You can see my profile for these reviews. I covered up the 'Schwinn' logos on the bike with reflective tape and posted a picture of it. It was due to the fact that the tape should be in an effective location and only be used for anti-theft purposes. Schwinn products have been very good to me. There is an update on 12 March 2015. A quick update... I have about 700 miles of use left in me, and 500 miles on the new set of wheels. Within 100 miles of my wheel change, I broke another spoke on the rear wheel, I had to replace the front derailleur and the cable, with both myself and my LBS attempting to get it set up correctly and dialed in. The chain ring set has become slightly bent from use and I am looking at having to replace it. After the chain ring replacement, I will be into the bike for a long time. I still think it's a good bike for the price, but I would recommend it to someone who is looking to log some serious miles. There are additional recommendations. I patched about 8 times before investing in thick tire tubes, self-sealing tubes or tire liners, but changing a tire on the same day...this obviously depends on where you ride and the conditions that you ride in, but changing a tire on the same day is recommended. My morning and evening commute tend to be into a strong headwind for about 14 miles and I have recently installed a set of aero bars. I wanted an option to get me lower on this ride because my body position is too upright for the headwinds I have been riding in. I will do another update later. I have started saving and looking for a new bike.
The T1 aluminum frame is lightweight. The MTB saddle is made for long rides. A smooth ride is provided by 27. 5” tires. The internal cable route provides added protection. You can count on disc brakes to stop in all riding conditions.
👤The gear shift was stuck out from the box. Took on a dirt bike trail and did well. The shifter can't find the lower gears when slowing down. I have to stop the bike and lift up to use the peddle. The box said it was made in china, which I didn't like. I thought I was buying a bike from the US. In its advertisement, Amazone should say where it's made. I like buying American products to keep our economy strong. I won't buy any more bikes or other products unless Amazone is completely honest about where the product is made.
👤The daughter did great in school and got a bike. She found this one and wanted it. No problem. Look for a month to come in. It's really bad. Okay, whatever. Assembly was not bad. The box looked good and went ahead with it. I gave it a test drive before handing it over to my daughter. Brakes needed help. They were adjusted a bit. They were covered with oil so they weren't weak. It got better after they cleaned them off. The wheel was grinding while I was doing the rears. It did not hit anything or remove the caliper. Still working. I thought they were weak on the assembly. I took the wheel off and put it in my workshop. There is a I noticed the problem when I spun the axle. Its bent! What? Oh, heck! The stem didn't want to come out easily. Finally, I got it out. I removed the assembly to see how bad it was. Oh boy. This is off by a few MM. The thing has problems as you can see in the pictures. There is a I have to contact Amazon to find out what they are doing. I got a brand new bike. Feel bad for my daughter. She did well and as a reward got a dud.
👤This is the only positive thing about the bike. There is a The frame was advertised as "aluminum frame". There is a The front and rear gear shifting mechanisms don't work the way they should. Garbage and brakes. The rear brake/wheel is locking sometimes, even after adjustment by pro. This bike is unsafe to ride, so don't buy it. There is a Returning after just 3 days.
👤The bike was damaged in shipping and I have to replace both front and rear discs because the box was open.
👤I love this bike. It is a very affordable bike and it rides great. The seat, post, handlebars, forks and front wheel were assembled on to the bike. If you have the faintest idea of mechanical inclination, it can be done. The initial test ride went well and there were some minor adjustments I needed to make to the brakes. There is a The bike is light and it comes in at under 34 lbs., I was impressed by how light it is for a mountain bike with a front suspension. I was very happy with the color scheme on the bike, but I was a little worried about the picture online of the actual unit, as it was not a good representation of the ride. I would recommend a bike at the $500-$600 price point.
The aluminum frame with hydroformed tubing and a powerful front suspension fork is strong and reliable. Smooth gear changes can be made with 21-speed shifters. The front and rear V-brakes make it easy to stop on the trail. The 26x2.125" tires roll over anything. The Riser handlebar has colored end plugs.
👤So far, so good. I bought this for my son who is a big guy. I was worried that it would be too small. It fits him perfectly and is not small at all. He put it together quickly. Attaching the front wheel,handle bars,seat and pedals was pretty much already assembled. He and his friends were at the state park within 30 minutes of putting it together. He had a sore butt but he said it handles well and he was riding it for more than four hours. Changing the seat or getting a gel pad cover is recommended by me. Only day one. The bike has needed a few adjustments, but so far so good. I had to take it to the bike shop because the handlebars continued to slip and loosen, but they fixed it and it doesn't come loose anymore. Second. The tires kept popping and losing air, and then the inner tubes were changed out with Teflon tires, and now they don't lose any air, but be prepared to re-do a few things on it.
👤I read the other reviews and wish I would have looked at other bikes, but the bike was delayed for 3 days due to shipping. When the bike arrived, what was supposed to be a red and black bike turned out to be a pink and black bike. I debated about sending it back, but I wish I would have done it. I decided to put it together after I was done riding it around the neighborhood. The fun began. I had to remove the front brake system to put the front wheel on. After I had the front wheel, I had to change the front brake system. I was getting used to the pink and black. I went to put the seat on. I tightened the seat post. Disappointing... The seat post is still turning. I used a piece of electric tape to wrap around the post to make it thicker, if anyone else has that issue, it worked great. After about an hour of assembly, I decided to take her for a ride. I lost the chain locked up around the rear assembly when I went to shift gears about 20 minutes into the ride, and I am done with this bike. I have purchased many items from Amazon over the years and enjoy the subscribe and save program, but it is not the fault of Amazon for the bike. If you were to spend the money on this bike, you could go to Walmart or a bike shop.
👤I had a problem with my bike. It was poorly assessed and needed adjustments in the box. Assembly instructions are not easy for the laymen, and would be best handled by someone who knows bikes or general mechanics. I had a lot of problems with the bike brakes. I spent 100 bucks at the local bike shop to fix the brakes, but they still made noise, brake pressure was weak, and other issues. The bike shop told me that it is not uncommon to see this from bike's of this caliber. This style of brakes are prone to issues. I would recommend spending a couple hundred more and getting a bike with a disc brake system instead of brake pads. I have been a happy camper ever since I bought a good quality Norco bike after returning this bike. My 2 cents.
You can count on disc brakes to stop in all riding conditions. The beach cruiser has knobby tires. The cruiser design frame has plenty of clearance to conquer any terrain. The wheel set has disc brakes. Men's fat-tire bike has front and rear disk brakes. The steel mountain frame is ready to hit the trail.
👤The bike holds me just fine. I got a tire without riding it and it was correct. The brakes and the shift are bad. Otherwise, a good bike for the money.
👤This bike is amazing. I received the bike a week after I bought it. The bike was boxed. The metal was wrapped in packing material. The bike was assembled. The front tire and handle bar had to be installed. I have a fat tire bike for the first time and it has been fun. I changed the knob-style gear shift to a rapid fire gear shift. The sealed YST bottom brackets were upgraded. I verified the crankset spins without any problems by lubricating the bearing cups with parktool bike grease. I replaced the cheapo bike seat with a better one. These were the first upgrades I have ever done on a bike and they were very easy. I will upgrade the grips and pedals when they are in stock on Amazon. There is a My hitch mongoose is so smooth that it is easy to shift. The bike gets a lot of attention and it gives a nicer ride. I plan to write a letter to the company expressing my gratitude for how they packaged my bike. This bike is a must have.
👤This review is for people who are not sure if fat tire biking is worth the money. There is a The Hitch arrived undamaged. It was shipped in a box that was enclosed in another box. I weighed the whole rig after assembling it for about 15 minutes. The seat post requires some force to tighten it around the seat but it was secure after that. I found that the front rotor was not completely "true" and still had some noises during the front wheels' rotation. After two miles, the sound was gone and the brake pads were in good shape. The Hitch is heavier than the aluminum ones because it is a steel bike. The ride quality is stable and almost bouncy, and the braking power is adequate if you've adjusted the brakes well. I have ridden it in snow and ice with 10 PSI on front and back tires, but still have to test it in the trails. The tires were very stable. The 7 speed transmission may be a limitation for people who are not super fit, but I am mostly going to use this on flat to moderately rolling trails. I think the extra 25 lbs will translate into stronger legs and lungs. With drilled out wheels and disc brakes, you can gain quick entry into the fun world of fat biking.
👤I bought this bike to get back into shape. I hated the seat I was in, I'm a bigger guy. I had to buy another seat. I wanted the tires to be very hard to steer if you weren't used to it. A heavy bike. You can feel it. The breaks from the factory don't work well, but with the weight of the bike I stop quickly, but the hardwear to tune it right is there. Now for the pros. The bike should last a long time. It's easy to put together. The gears shift smoothly. I took it for a break on a 11 mile ride over concrete grass and dirt. I expected it to have preformed as well as it did.
Extra stability is provided by 26x4 inch fat all-terrain tires on 3 inch wide drilled alloy rims. The Title Elite 24 BMX race bike is a level above their popular Title series and is capable of high-end performance. The height of the rider is suggested. Professional-grade. The T1 is a biaxial hydroformed and butted aluminum frame. The frame weight is 3.44 lbs. The Title Elite has a sealed bottom and a 24mm hollow spindle alloy cranks. The wheelset has Arisun XLR8 tires mounted on Xposure XD aluminum double wall rims with 10mm hollow axle sealed front hub. A sealed bearing headset and a 6.5" 4130 chromoly handlebar and fork are joined by a 50mm stem and sealed bearing headset to combine for maximum steering performance.
👤The frame and forks are the highlights. I thought I would need higher bars, but they worked out well. The cassette hub started making popping noises when I started riding. I've lost 30 pounds. The cassette hub was not skipping within the first 2 months of riding. The back hub is like a Black Ops. There was only one nut and no lock nut on the drive side of the hub. If you tightened the rear axle, it's probably fine, but the bearings were a bit tighter than they needed to be. The KMC chain was an econo model and was stretched in about 2 months. The rims are similar to V. I don't know where they would be bought together. The rims are working. They are 31mm wide on the inside of the rim. I'm not having any issues with the cranks. I didn't have a bike and am a returning rider, so the whole package was race ready. I could upgrade it the way I wanted it to be. The original bike was under 23 pounds. I like the 12.5" height of theBB on modern tracks. I liked the lowerBB on the old school track, but I didn't have any problems. The back-end of the frame is very strong. The front hub seems to work well. They paid attention to the details. I like the fact that they did 32 spoke holes on the front and 36 on the rear wheel. Many parts are black. The frameset is good and I can upgrade it when I have the money.
👤I need a bike, I'm 215 lbs and I've been racing BMX and pump tracks. My budget is between $500- 700 for a bike. After giving the title Elite 24 a serious look, and finding one open box on Amazon for a discount. I decided to try it out. The bars have a rise of 6.5 inches. The front chainring is 44T, which is better for pump tracks. My preference was after $120 in upgrades. A very solid bike is under $560. The bike is easy to build and feels great to ride. This is a quick and easy bike to ride for the track. The bike doesn't feel short at 6'1 and the proper size bars are installed. It feels like it. There is a There is a product called Alston Pedals that can be found on the Amazon.com website.
👤The bike looks great. There is a It was easy to put together and it feels great, it is easy to adjust the breaks. Anyone can build this bike. I bought this bike for my son, but I think it's a good one from the age of 10. There is a It was light and enjoyable to ride.
👤It appears well made and very lightweight. It is easy to assemble. The seat angle is not adjusted, which makes it hard to ride with the seat post up. The seat angle on this bike should be adjusted. I had to buy an aftermarket post and seat to correct the deficiency, and I spent an additional $40 to make sure my grandson could use it.
The mountain bike is durable and can be used for neighborhood rides. The crank has less maintenance. Quick gear changes on the trail can be made with twist shifters and rear derailleurs. Light and durable alloy wheels add stability to all-terrain, knobby mountain tires. The seat post makes it easy to adjust the height.
👤The bycicle is easy to assemble, the breaks are nice, and the quality is good. I'm 5'3" and have a weight of around 153 lbs and an inseam of 30", this size is perfect for me. I had to go through a lot of comments to find out if this bike was the right height for me. I can lift it without much effort, even though it is heavier than I thought. I would like the seat to be more comfortable. I will be updating this review.
👤I had a bike shop make it for my 9 year old son. They commented on the poor parts. I thought a $200 bike was more than enough for my daughter's age. The bike shop can't get the derailleurs adjusted right because they don't shift properly and it's not safe for a kid's bike. The chain fell off the gear and onto the guard. The bike shop worked on it a second time after I test rode it. It was me on the bike that I went from pedaling normally with resistance to zero resistance on the pedals very abruptly which is a dangerous situation for a child. I regret buying this bike, I'm into it for almost $300, and I'll probably junk it and buy a better bike at a bike shop. I don't think it's right to sell it or leave it at the curb as some poor kid will eventually get it and potentially hurt themselves on it. There is a Oh yes. Schwinn offered to send parts which I could pay for to have a bike shop install. I'm done spending more money on this thing. The design of the bike is terrible, even if they get it set right, it won't last anyway, according to the guys at the bike shop. There is a If you want to spend more money on a bike, I would recommend you to go to a good shop. If you have to, buy a big one so they can keep it longer. This trash or anything like it should not be bought.
👤I have read many reviews about this bike. I bought it for my wife. It was easy to assemble. The handlebars are too low. The gears don't work. Good luck trying to get it to gear up or down if you are caught in mid-gear. I have never been so disappointed with a purchase. I will not buy a Schwinn again. I was going to get her a Trek and that is what I should have done. I hope the shop will give me a credit for only riding the bike once. The bike is not made to ride on the bike paths. The bike sucks, it's not rough terrain. I would be happy to get a refund.
👤When I was hit by a car, I started looking for a new bike. I was lucky to be alive after hitting the pavement, but my old Murray Redwing was not so lucky. I gave my son a 1972 Schwinn Collegiate, so it was time for a new bike. I was naive enough to think I could replace the Redwing with 100 clams. The best bikes in the under $200 range can be found online. Many bikes listed online by big box stores never make it to the store. Some are shipped from a different retailer than you are buying it from. There is a If you can't try it out, how do you find out which bike is right for you? You have to dig into the very limited specifications provided by the sellers. It's a small - medium - large choice to fit your body size. Many bikes have issues when you read bike reviews in this price range. Cheap parts, bad mechanisms, or shoddy factory assembly are mostly the things that happen. You need to read the customer reviews. It will be a problem for you if the same design flaws are repeated in the reviews. There is a If you are buying a bike for a long time, you should steer clear of Fad Designs and Trendy Paint finishes. Make your decision after you narrow it down to 3 bikes. If you are trying to get the lowest price, be patient as they fluctuate daily. There is a I chose the Schwinn High Timber 27.5 because I believed it would fit me and offer quality. I never found this bike in a store before buying it. Schwinn is not listed on the web site. It has a white 18-Inch Frame. The tires are 27 inches in diameter. There is not much you can do with the box. Only Handlebars, Seat, Pedals, and Front Tire can be added. There are 3 tools needed, an open end or a screwdriver, and a bike pump. I went over the nuts and bolts to make sure they were tight. The front brake has to be loosened in order to get the quick release tire on. The gears were in perfect condition. There is a The front shock seems to have a good amount of elasticity. I've tried some bikes where you sit on them and the suspension bottoms out. The seat is not comfortable or uncomfortable. The Knurled Seat Post with Quick Release can be replaced with a bolt. The front tire uses a small diameter threaded rod which doesn't seem like it could be replaced with a larger bolt. The paint job is rated an "A" overall. There are signs of paint on the cable holders. The front forks have a small Metal Flake. The 3 color graphics are silk screened and only a few stickers are added. There is a The spokes and hubs are black. The inner flat of the rim is painted black, but it's hard to tell by the pictures. The frame is solid and the welds could be better done by robot. The no name tires are so-so quality, not alot of nubs, and you can see the mold seams in the center. The Quality Kickstand with rubber tip is what comes with the Pedals. There are additional mounts for the water bottle. The average weight for a steel frame bike is 40 lbs. The Handlebar is on the short side at 24 inches and has room for a few add on's. The 21 speed Shifters have 7 Speeds on the right side and 3 on the left side. The rear derailleur is called "Shimano Tourney TX". There is a The bike is an 18-inch frame with 27.5 size tires. It's a little bigger than a standard 26 inch bike and a little smaller than the High Timber with 29 inch tires. The most important factor for me was my size and fit. The bike would be too tight for me if the handlebars were closer. I have raised the handlebars a bit. I have raised the seat to get a straight leg stroke. You are sitting on this bike. I am riding it on paved streets. The Schwinn High Timber is a good fit for me. It looks nice, rides well, and has a wide range of pedaling power. I think you are getting a quality build with dependability in this price range. The Schwinn brand name is what you would expect. I think this High Timber fills the bill for a long time. This review can help you with your decision.
The bike has a limited lifetime warranty. The steel-framed mountain bike with all-terrain knobby tires is a great way to conquer any off-road trail. The threadless headset has an adjustment for riders of different heights, and the strong, lightweight alloy rims keep the weight down. Ride with beach cruiser pedals and make sure you are safe. The hills are easier to climb with a rear derailleur with seven speeds. The bike is ready to be assembled. The size is for adult riders who are 5' 6 to 6' tall.
👤I was very excited to get this bike. I used to do this for Trek. It wasn't my first rodeo, and I took off down my street for the maiden voyage. Within 800 feet of my driveway, the cheap plastic chain guard, prowheel brand, shattered into six pieces, cut my legs, and I went end over end. The bike feels great, but it is made of plastic. Don't buy if you're warned. There was an update on 8-19-18. Amazon sent me the same bike and I got back my money. The front disc brake was crumple like paper as I applied light pressure to it, relying on the rear to slow down on a gentle curve. I went into some bushes. The front fork was twisted. I would show that as well. I stripped the bike and made it 888-282-0465. It's going back to Amazon. You should be ashamed of yourselves for selling cheap bikes under a once noble name, and for having no customer support. I have the ability to influence anyone for the rest of my life.
👤I'm trying to get healthy again and the idea of being locked away in the gym on stationary machines sounded very unattractive. The idea of an outdoor bike came to mind. I was very worried that I wouldn't find a bike that could hold the mount. I was afraid that I would look like a man on a bike. The Dolomite Fat Tire Mountain Bike has made me less afraid. The fat tires bring some balance to my watermelon like shape while on it, as well as holding my robust body. I recommend this bike to anyone who wants to get healthy again.
👤I bought this bike a year ago and have been using it as a trail bike. This bike is a good candidate for the theory of gradually upgrading a bike for people who are curious about fat bikes. The bones of the frame, wheels, tubes, tires and seat have stood up to regular use on rocky trails and steep fire roads. I treated this bike to a brand new Kenda Juggernaut rear tire because I like it so much. I was happy to upgrade parts from my spare parts bin because most of the stock components were not my liking. Not everyone has one of these. I pulled some better gear from my spare parts bin because I wanted to use it for more than cruising on sand, and everything worked when I got it. When I bring my bike for a group ride, my regular mountain biking friends occasionally trade me for a portion of our ride and have been pleasantly surprised that the bike geometry is actually comfortable and the bike doesn't feel as slow as it looks. I configured mine to run a 26 tooth chain ring in the front and a 14-34T Freewheel in the back, which provided more reasonable gear for climbing. Hope this helps someone make a purchase.
👤I read reviews and researched on fat tire bikes before buying 2 of them for myself and my wife. Positive and negative reviews on Amazon were both accurate, I would say. My wife's bike arrived and was put together nicely, she went on the beach. My bike was not the only story. The box was falling apart and there was plastic on the bottom of it. I put it together. I am not using the front disc brake because it is broken. It's inconvenient that the chain slips off the back sprockets. I received a PDF with instructions on making adjustments, and was told if that didn't work I could return it to Amazon. Both are not good options. I don't know how to package it up and send it back. By looking at my wife's bike, it's possible that all goes well, because it's a nice bike at a nice price. Is my bike? I'm not sure what to do. I will have to try to fix it.
