Nice bike for certain, but for the same money, Bikesdirect gives one much better spec's.

Because there seems to be a bit of a bike shortage (at least where I live) this is a decent buy, but I think you can get much nicer components on a hard tail mountain bike for $850. It's cool looking, I'll say that.

Yeah I agree. The Fantom 29 Comp is way better and cheaper.

My wife's old Schwinn is falling apart. Where can I get a decent road bike these days? Something where she can sit up straighter than something like this mountain bike.

I'm old school, so not a fan of suspension. I rode a full squish the other day and the loss of peddling power drove me crazy. I will say you can bomb shitty down hill terrain super easy on these...but like I said I'm old school. The gravel bike I just got handles everything I have around here and is so, so much faster.

I posted it up on my Immortal thread...I bought the Carbon Immortal road bike, but also this Gravel Bike: http://www.bikesdirect.com/produc...r-road.htm

However, do you get any bike service from a qualified mechanic from Dicks? That, and the ability to ride the bike are huge advantages.

Deore is good stuff, very durable. BD is the most bike for the money, but you need to know what you are doing. The above bike was easy to assemble but I had problems with the Immortal that added $100. The bikes fit, so its good. If this bike fits and it is assembled properly for you then it is worth paying more. I am 58, and I will smoke it with my new gravel bike, LOL Smilie

And no, this is the worst time to buy a bike. The LBS had a long line of people with fat open wallets. It is not a bad shop, it is just supply and demand.

Gonna check that out. I like the 1x11 for an entry level unit and the simplicity is awesome.

Edit: That is a strong bike for the money. New eagle 1x 12 I just have a mile or 2 of tarmac before I get to the dirt. Plus that frame won't fit me. Good for someone who wants that type of bike.

I'm a fan of GT and bought my bike from Dick's, but in reading reviews on Youtube, many people seem to get their Panteras and Avalanches for way cheap on sale, much cheaper than this. But those sale prices are never advertised online, and they only seem to have the low end GT Aggressor in store. Not sure what is going on with their bike stock nowadays.

That being said, the Avalanche is a good bike but overpriced. The BikesDirect bikes are usually outdated frames with higher spec components. And a horrible website interface.
