Get Out & Ride.
Get Out & Ride.
Purchased Oct. And being told for brakes theirs no tension adjustment for handicapped rider. And i need to invest over $200 to fix brakes
Finally made it out to my local trails which I wanted to do before reviewing. Bike arrived two days early and damage free; nicely packed. Assembly was easy. Brakes and gears (after minor barrel adjustment) ready to ride out of the box. Build quality appears very nice. Bike is sturdy, smooth and quiet. This fells more like a M\L than a true M - I measured it at 17.5". Not much space on stand over for me personally - but not uncomfortable either. (Plus I prefer a taller bike anyway).
On the trails the only limitation of the bike was my fitness and skill. Bike seams very capable of the green single track and blue flow trails at my local. This is a perfect entry level machine especially for someone like me over 45 and getting back into the sport at a casual level after over 12 years from last off road ride.
This should really be 4.5 stars except for a few nit-picks: 1] seat post is too long; gets held up by bottle mount preventing full lower position. (Plus with tall stand over mount/dismount is a little sketch.) Will need to cut or replace (w/dropper of course). 2] The paint does chip easily. Managed to chip it setting it against my work bench. 3] Tires are decent enough to get started but will need upgrade when worn depending on trail profile. My trails have fair amount of loose gravel and roots and a more aggressive pattern could improve handling.
Overall, for the amount of features this bike packs and at the ridiculous sale price, the value of this bike is very hard to beat.
1. UPS delivery is awful!!! Doesn't cost even $1. Not to speak about $100 charged...
2. Assembly manual would be very helpful. But it's still pretty easy to figure everything out even with no googling.
3. Couple necessary tools could add the value.
4. I personally don't like Presta valves. It would be great if 1 or 2 adapters to regular Shrader were included. It adds literally $1 to price!
5. No cover for pedal axle from gear side.
6. No cover for front gear.
7. Too long suspension lock metal wire.
8. My bike has several issues:
-rear brake had oil near the lever what is either leak or imperfect assembly;
-2 highest gears are switching back and forth by themselves;
-rear braking disk is touching the pads;
-something is wobbling inside pedal axle during a ride.
I received very promptly, and I am very satisfied. Nothing else in this price range even compares.
There are those who know and those who THINK they know. There are those who need labels and “brand names,” and those who know a good thing when they see it. We made e11even bikes for those who can tell quality and performance without a logo to validate their choice.
Dollars are dollars, but what do those dollars get you? With our 1x11 you get way more than you may have bargained for, and in the best ways. You can search high and low, but it’s next to impossible to beat our spec on a dollar for dollar level. We can say that proudly because we’ve done our homework, and you’ll understand why when you throw a leg over one of these bikes and hit your favorite trail.
Built around an aluminum frame with semi-hydroformed 6000 series tubing that has been hand welded for durability and precision alignment. We use a two piece crankset and sealed outboard bottom brackets for increased durability and power transfer. Our RLO air sprung fork has coated stanchions and a remote lockout, for buttery smoothness and quick adjustability. The 1x11 drivetrain has lightning fast shifting and a wide range 11spd cassette that gives you the gear you want, when you need it. The sporty XC geometry is totally ready to rip it up on your local trails, or just cruise along on your favorite bike paths. From novice to expert, it’s ready to roll when you are.
Compare all of this to the $1,100 our competitors charge. You could spend more and get less, but that just seems silly, doesn't it?
The RLO air sprung fork with remote lockout has 100mm of travel that can be adjusted and tuned to all types of riders. With the bar mounted lockout lever, you never have to take your hands off the handlebar or pull over to lockout the fork for increased pedaling efficiency on long climbs or smooth surfaces. The coated stanchions provide insanely smooth performance, with increased durability.
Our frame uses quality 6000 series aluminum tubing that has been shaped and butted for optimal stiffness, lightness, and power transfer. The geometry is built for nimble and sporty performance with an XC oriented geometry, allowing you to strike balance between high speed stability and lower speed maneuverability.
S-Ride shifters and rear derailleur perform as good, or better than the big names, without the bigger price. You’ll be blown away by the shifting performance and easy operation, as well as the quality and durability.
With a 32t chainring and super wide range 11-50t 11spd cassette, you’ll be screaming down descents and flying up the steepest of climbs with excellent efficiency. Combined with a stiff, durable, and easy-to-service outboard bearing bottom bracket, you’ll get amazing performance and power output.
Hydraulic disc brakes with large 160mm rotors provide awesome stopping power, with excellent modulation, and ultra reliable performance.
