by freedomdefenderfromLove this beautiul mountain bikeFirst mountain bike! I bought new pedals and hand grips -- the factory ones just weren't cutting it. Immediately following the purchase and store tune up, I went for a 15-mile ride. Awesome! 29ers aren't an option with this one but who cares? I could take curbs head on, no problem!
