The design of the cycle allows you to ride it on various terrains without worrying. It is surprisingly appealing when you consider the bucks you have to pay for it.
26″ Granite Peak Women’s Mountain Bike Review
In my review of Granite Peak 26” Bike for Women, I’ll touch on additional benefits that come with it. Read the details below to know my full and final verdict.
Catchy Design Ensures Style and Durability
It is surprising that manufacturers provide solid steel frame for a bike. Not only that, the cycle is perfectly crafted and suitable for women to ride. With the 16.5 inches reinforced frame, women can lean forward on this bike at the perfect angle.
Also, considering the general height for women is 5’3” to 5’10”, this bike is the perfect fit. The suspension fork is designed to counter bumpiest of roads with ease. 80mm suspension fork can pull you through from anywhere.
Competent Gear System Makes Life Easier
Gears are crucial elements to mountain bike. Your experience depends on how smooth the gear system of your bike is.
In Granite Peak’s case, switching between gears is smooth and noiseless thanks to ‘Twist Shifters’. You can try 18 different speeds and switch between them safely thanks to those SRAM Drive Twisters and 3-part crank.
Brakes Provide Greater Grip on Wheels
For a Mountain Bike, brakes are crucial especially when you are descending from high hills. Granite Peak Ladies Mountain Bike has linear brakes that are soft on hands.
Furthermore, they provide greater pull factor on wheels that ensure instant stop. While coming down from hills, the wheels won’t skid on the surface to prevent accidents you dread.
Spacious Aluminum Wheels Provide Increased Support
Spacious wheels will help you cover more ground with less pedaling. This will cause less body fatigue and more calories to burn. The tiers will provide traction whenever you are thinking of climbing up the hills or come down.
- Road Master Granite Peak 26” Mountain Bike for Women is very much affordable with cool features.
- Entry level bike with decent performance.
- Brake system works very well with a maximum grip on the wheels.
- Sturdy bike lasts for a long time before you need to change anything.
- The frame of the bike is prone to scratches
- The upper part is heavier than the lower one. It made descending from steep hills problematic for me
- The bike DOES NOT come pre-assembled and putting together all the parts takes time
- The seat presented problems during longer rides
You might complain about the unstable seat and the lesser brakes but considering what it costs you, it’s not really a big deal.
It is an ‘Entry Level’ bike suitable for those who are looking for a bike to get into Mountain Bike Riding. This bike is a deal-breaker in my opinion.
