This bike is for serious mountain biking, not for faint of heart or just a Sunday ride in the park. Unfortunately I dont get to ride anymore and need to let this bike go. It is a great climber with the 3x9 gears and Ive done some neat upgrades to it: changed the stock mechanical disc brakes to hydraulic Shimano SLX brakes, Gator F 26 x 2.0 dual density off roading tires, new chain, new rear cassette, new grips and recently tuned. Ive only ridden the bike 3 times since the upgrades, its been sitting in the garage since Feb.
