Update received a suspension seat post . ON MINE IT IS 27.2 MM . Most people do not try this but I have a bad back and this bike is replacing a fat tire one I was hit by a truck on and run over last year . Those 5 inch tires are the best shock obsorber I have found but sadly the bike was unfixable and all others are 4 inch tires and mine which is no longer made was the 5 . Trying to protect my fused spine . The seat post on mine bought here in 2017 and date coded as a 2015 model was 27.2 . Putting a 10 by 8 Cloud 9 seat on her . I already know its my favorite . Says its a ladies model but works for me . The mens is just larger and doesn't fit me as well at 12 by 10 which we found by accident as the prior bike came with the ladies seat new . Now attempting to find a adapter to raise the bars about 6 inches so I can sit back due to my fused cervical spine . I am having trouble with this there is enough slack in the cables to go up 3-4 inches and maybe even back one or two . Trying to get away with using the same brake lines as that would be a real pain the disc in front . Not so bad for the rear cable which by the way can be disengaged in the brush if it tangles with shrubs so be careful . I made sure to fasten the end to keep my cable in seated no matter what . It can be pushed out otherwise though it would be a longshot . It did happen once to me however be careful if putting a toolbag off the seat or other items that can bounce around on a basket for example .
It was extremely well packaged but I did have to tinker a bit with it during assembly which I found to be extremely simple. Took it for a ride today and it is a very solid bike. Looks very good in person. Better than the pictures indicate. I'm used to a hardtail and I have already ordered a stiffer rear shock as I don't like the bouncing while climbing. But I'm 6-1" 225 which I'm sure has something to do with that. The bike does fit me quite well after a few adjustments to the seat and handlebars as with any bike. Sure you may want to do a couple upgrades eventually, but I don't see how you can beat this bike for the price.
Update: I installed the DNM Mountain Bike Air Rear Shock With Lockout 165mm and the bike is now a super-bike. This rear shock took all the bounce out of climbing even with my 225lb frame. I am in love with this bike! Seriously
1. The front fork claims to be SR Suntour which is a well known brand. Instead it comes with $15 dollar zoom brand forks made in china. The Suntours are not great but they are valued more and perform a tad better.
2. The tires should be kenda mtb tires but instead they give you cheap china tires innova brand.
3. The crank arms should be suntour instead its really another brand with schwinn written on it.
Overall this bike should be valued ar such a high price anymore due to downgraded parts. This is illegal to see this not matching the discription. Cheap parts on a mtb can cause injury if the product fails. Im done buying chinese made garbage!!!!
