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.

This is my first ever mountain bike and I have no regrets with this bike. I bought the green one and I get many compliments about the look and color. I've ridden about 4 different trails since I bought this a month ago. It handles really well, it's light weight, and looks great. The only thing that I have an issue with is the shifting. Even with proper maintenance, it still shifts rough. I'm going to go back to REI to have them take a look at it. I'm sure it's probably just an assembly issue. I still rate this product 5 stars because of how great it is. I'm sure the gearing and shifting issue can be fixed. I highly recommend this bike to anyone. My friend is an avid downhill rider. He tested my bike and said it's an excellent climber! I'm just a beginner and I love this bike.
