Last Edited by BostonGirl October 7, 2013 at 09:58 AM
Focus is a German-based manufacturer of high quality bicycles. It's rare to see anything by them priced this low. This hard tail mountain bike (MTB) is massively discounted (leftover 2011 model). It looks like Medium, Large, and XL sizes are left.

Decently well equipped for a good trail bike / light-duty MTB. Hard tail with an 80mm travel Suntour fork. Only 8 speeds and cantilever brakes, but what do you expect for this price? Plus, you'd have something both good quality AND a bike that not everybody else has.

Focus Highland Peak Bike 2011

Get out and enjoy the great outdoors. Let the wind caress your hair as you pedal through the wooded area and the sun beam on your face once you’ve left the shelter of the trees. The Highland Peak is the perfect bike to get you off the couch and onto the trail. Built with the perfect balance of performance, dependability and price, the Highland Peak will provide you with seasons of fun without robbing you of your savings account.

The Focus Highland Peak features an SR Suntour XCT V3 suspension fork to eat up the roots, rocks, and debris that stand in your way. Brand name integrated Shimano shifters and brake levers are reliable and built to last. Black Comp cockpit pieces (saddle, seatpost, handlebar, stem) were chosen to keep the quality high, and the price low. Enjoy the beautiful weather, get fit, and have fun with the Focus Highland Peak.

Looks like there is a $30 oversize shipping charge. Could be because they ship the bike fully assembled.

I am looking for a bike that can do a bit of everything, off road, on road, trails, etc. I am pretty ignorant on bikes and didn't know if this would qualify. I know it is a great price but unsure if I should pull the trigger.

This is a really good trail bike for the money. You will hate riding this on paved roads with those knobby tires meant for dirt. HOWEVER.... put on some 26 inch "city tires" like these http://www.amazon.com/Continental...city+tires and you'd have a pretty nice "all-rounder"

Agree, also the suspension fork will absorb pedaling energy so that counts against it on pavement. But hybrid type tires will go a long way toward making it more usable on roads.

Re the OP's comment on cantilever brakes, I agree on a $280 bike these brakes are perfectly good. If you somehow got discs they'd be low end garbage.

Or Fat Boy tires. They are 100psi and great for pavement. And yes they are bald, you don't need tread on pavement wet or dry.

This bike a good deal, 8 speed is unheard of at this price, same with 80mm fork.

Is this bike worth it to switch out tires? Or should I look for more of a hybrid bike at the $250 price range?

If you are only riding on pavement, get a hybrid bike. You would need to switch out the tires but also put higher bars on it and a more comfortable seat. You could ride it as is but you wouldn't be happy. Mountain bikes have a bent over riding position to weight the front wheel in the dirt around turns but it sucks on the road. And the seat will get old too. You don't notice in the woods because you're up and down and all around it but on the road, you notice. Actually, you can get a cheaper hybrid bike with a steel frame and solid steel fork to save money. Steel is more comfortable than aluminum so you can avoid the weight and expense of a suspension fork. Look at the overall weight of the bike though, don't get one that is too heavy, anything over 30 pounds is too heavy even for a hybrid IMO.

If you're a serious biker, you will be annoyed at the weigh even if you just change out the tires. But for an entry level mountain bike for light to medium trails, this thing is a great deal IMO. Sometimes Diamondbacks are this cheap but they are usually 7 speed.
