After its initial break-in period you might notice your bicycle performing less responsively than the day you brought it home. Not to worry, this is typical of all new bicycles and simply reflects that cables have stretched or their housings have seated themselves into final position. To keep running at peak performance, all REI bicycles come with a FREE warranty tune-up, which should be accomplished between the first 100-200 miles of riding or after the first two months if you're accumulating miles less quickly. Contact your nearest REI bike shop for details and an appointment for this important service.

by fromA Stable Platform for Cross-Country Use Just got this bike as a warranty replacement for a Rush 4 that I cracked the base of the seatpost on after four years of moderate but technical cross-country use. Really enjoying the new 2012 RZ120 after a half-dozen rides. We ride Patapsco, Fountainhead, Rosaryville, and other MD. wilderness trails mostly, so plenty of rocky rooty, with log-jumps and step-ups aplenty. The new 2012 frame seems much more robust than the Rush, albeit at a weight penalty. I am running XT gear and the new Shimano SLX 22/36 double-ring with integrated bash-guard with 170 mm cranks, and some lighter parts including a Lefty shock and Nokon cables. So my confirmed weight is at 29.6 Lbs. A bit less than reported weight so probably accurate as it comes from REI with a triple. Running Mutano Raptors for the winter. The new bike is quite adept at rocky and rooty terrain. More stable than the previous Rush model. The RockShox Monarch RT rear shock is quite plush, I must say the equal of my previous Fox RP2. It has settings for damping/rebound, and an initial bump-compliance setting also. No rear lockout. I've been riding it pretty much wide-open or 1-2 steps below, depending on terrain. The bike climbs well and carves cross-country turns and handles dips with aplomb. The murdered- out black matte paint with white lettering is beautifully understated, too. I will say it feels a bit heavier than the Rush, a bit noticeable on steep climbs, but it's a trade-off for strength and stability. Since I broke their previous model, I am hoping this one holds up better. Really like it so far.
