I bought a MongooseXR-75 but returned it due to improper gear placements and the seat was painful. I Decided to get a SCHWINN SIDEWINDER but ended up exchanging it for this bike. Dont get me wrong the schwinn was good but I wanted something with bigger tires and dual suspension. The V2100, you really get a good deal. Dual suspension, front disc brakes, and wider based tires compared to the Schwinn. The seat is better than the schwinn but if you prefer a better cushion, go ahead and purchase a new one. My best suggestion before you purchase this bike or any bike is to go through the whole gears, check if they run smooth through ALL gears, check the suspensions, check brakes, the seat, and loose bolts and screws. Pretty much inspect it to your liking. And if there is a minor flaws go ahead and ask the associates to fix it. Walmart has a bike center in the back that is willing to fix the bike before you purchase it. The gear shifter was loose on the handlebars and it was missing the 2 screws for the waterbottle holder. I asked them to tighten the gear shifter and told them it was missing 2 bolts. They fixed the problem and now my bike is in tip top shape. I love the bike. It handles well and rides smooth. If your still weary go ahead and search the genesis bikes website. People that give bad reviews dont inspect there bikes before they purchase it. DONT just sit on the bike when your about to buy it. Ride it around the bike area, Change the gears on it. MAKE sure you INSPECT before you buy. For $150, I got a very good deal. I am 5'11, 235lbs and the bike can withstand my weight. I LOVE THIS BIKE!! PURCHASED=V2100 White Frame (OHH YEA!)
Rated 3 out of 5 by MountainBikeMike A Good Buy for $150.00
If you don't already know, this bike is the Kent Int. GMC Topkick full suspension Mtn. Bike, without full disc brakes.
If you are looking for a bike that is the best deal for your money, you are in the right ball park.
Pros: Shimano Tourney trigger shifters, properly functioning full suspension, promax front cable operated disc brakes, canti lever rear brakes, 4-point rear swing arm w/ inset spacers for smoother operation( only normally found on more expensive full suspension bikes), nice WTB speed V "style" seat.
Cons: no rear drop-out for rear derailleur,cheap bottom end front/ rear derailleur, poor quality- heavy no-name suspension front and rear, poor quality & heavy handle bars, poor kickstand, cheap and heavy crank arms, cheap bottom bracket that will wear out within 500 miles or less.
overall: for the money it's not bad. the one thing that I look at, is the fact that most of the cons are upgradable for Approx. $100.00 or a little more, if you buy off of ebay and can do your own Bicycle work and maintenance. if you can't do that, then buy the Mongoose or the schwinn full suspension in the $300.00 price range. If you are looking for the cheapest professional quality bikes then look at the Forge saw back bikes, a great deal for the money.
The Genesis 26" Men's V2100 Dual-Suspension Bicycle will get you out on the trails, but If you are too rough on the bike, it might just leave you on the trails. If anything, upgrade the wheels and tires first and then go from there as the parts wear out on you. This bike is not geared towards comfort riding, but stock it's good for crushed lime stone trails, and if you're out of shape the weight won't hurt you, it will just make you stronger! thanks ~Mtn Bike Mike

I purchased this bike from my local walmart on 2/25/11 I have not been on a bicycle for about 5 years but it comes right back I grew up on mountain bikes and this bike is one of the best bangs for your buck I am 5'11" 300 lbs and wanted this to get back in shape the alloy frame is very strong the brakes are excellent and the shimano gears are fantastic the one thing that had to go is the seat the viteese seat is absolutely unbearable and painful to ride for more than a short distance so I recommend while picking up the bike at walmart getting a gel seat while your at it $20 more bucks for a proper seat and you will be thankful you did overall I am very happy with this bike I have put 10 miles on it since I have got it with no problems I will definitely recommend this bike to anyone

Originally, I chose a different mountain bike because of the great reviews for it (also, the price was a steal...$260 bike on sale for $104 at k-mart). Unfortunately, that bike did not meet my expectations so I returned it for a refund and went with my second choice- the Genesis v2100. I have been very impressed with the v2100....it seems to be a great bike! Not only does it look great, but it has performed without flaw up to this point. The shifting system makes it very easy to change gears accurately and quietly. Also, I haven't had any issues with the brakes or suspension- both seem to work great. The only that takes a second or two to figure out is the kickstand..lol. It's not the traditional stand....apparently they added some kind of locking feature so that the kickstand will stay in place and prevent the bike from rolling out of position. Overall, I think this is a good bike with a fair price.
Rated 5 out of 5 by gerwin amazing deal
I was shopping around for a bike and i went to Wal-Mart hoping to find a good deal and did I ever.
This bike is wonderful and exactly what i wanted but for much less money than i expected to spend.
I would advise getting a different seat though.. i found a bell seat for about $25 that is pretty awesome. took me 5 minutes to take the original seat off, put the new one on, and adjust it. Much much better.
Rated 5 out of 5 by OneUponMany Genesis V2100 "The Suprise Wal-Mart Special"
I've had the Genesis V2100 for a Month now. I ride a few times a week on Mostly Off-Road Terrain...Downhill, Climbing, I have a Cycle Track a half mile from my front door. I got this bike to get back into riding, and it's been awesome. I have almost 55Miles on the Bike. It's been on big drops/jumps "5-6ft" and on Long Uphill and Downhill Mtn. Rides, it's durability and reliabilty haven't been touched by any bike i've ever owned. The breaks are better than most department store break and the derailers and gears shift smooth and never jump after a little adjusting. I've abused the bike its showing no sign of wear. I baby it after I beat her though, regular oils cleaning etc.....If you keep it tuned up and adjusted, its an awesome buy...I love it...A friend bought a mongoose xr-75 at the same time and his wheel broke today so I was more encouraged to write this after his bike falling apart while i rode past him.....
Rated 4 out of 5 by MRRIDEALOT GREAT LOOKING BIKE
THE GENESIS V 2100 MOUNTAIN BIKE IS NOT ONLY GOOD LOOKING BUT A SMOOTH RIDING TRAILBIKE. I RIDE MORE THAN 6 HOURS A DAY AND THE ONLY BAD REVIEW I CAN GIVE IS THE PEDALS ARE CHEAP. IT ONLY TOOK ME ONE WEEK AND I HAD TO REPLACE ONE OF MY PEDALS. ON TOP OF THAT I WENT BACK TO WALMART AND BOUGHT THE REPLACEMENT NOW IT JUS NOT RIGHT. IF I UPGRADE ANYTHING ON THE BIKE I WOULD UPGRADE TO ALLOY PEDALS AND A BETTER FRONT DICK BRAKE ASSEMBLY. OTHER THEN THAT IVE BEEN VERY SATISFIED WIT THE BIKE AND WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO ALL WHO LOVE BIKING.
Rated 4 out of 5 by billy1boy GREAT
Guarantee this item is 99.9% great,I stand 5'11 275 and this item is strong enough and very sturdy for riding in any environment,everything works perfectly on the bike and it's a really good size also.only thing I would advise is the seat seems to be a bit on the small side,I would recommend that you change it for comfort.that was the only problem I had,other than that it's perfect.
Rated 5 out of 5 by INTEL excellent
I bought this product like 3 weeks ago. I use this bike to go to school and come back home. The school is 1.5 miles from my house. So I ride 3 miles everyday.
I used a mongoose bike for more than two years but there were some problems everytime. I was frustrated with that. So I made a decision to buy a new bike.
First I went to Walmart thinking that I will buy a Mongoose again because they were OK than other bikes but when I saw this bike, I immediately bought this hoping that a bike equipped with Shimano and front disc brake for only $150 will be better than the mongoose. This is a dual suspension bike, so it was a perfect match for me because the path I go to school is uneven.
This bike is performing as I expected. Nothing is wrong. Disc brake is awesome. Gear is amazing. I can shift the gear very easily.Brakes are great. I hope it would be even better if there was a comfortable seat. But the seat is not that bad. It is OK for me.
Genesis is a great bike brand. I knew this thing after buying this bike.
Therefore, by all these qualities I would recommend this bike to everyone. If you want a bike lower than $200 than buy this bike.
And, again do not buy any other bike if you want a bike lower than $200.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ICYonly1 Siiiiiiiiiiick looking bike!!
This bike has turned a dozen heads... NICE matte black frame and rides smoothly.
I took ALL the stickers off without using any weird liquids... just peeled em right off. (see the picture) and now it looks suhhhhweeet!!
I'm replacing the seat with a gel one for sure since the one on there is very narrow and tough on the butt. I'm gonna take it out to the mountains tomorrow so I'll let you know how it goes.
P.S. I attached a Cy-Fi wireless iphone speaker to the handlebar if you're wondering what that alien contraption is hahah.
Rated 5 out of 5 by YankyRider better than expected!!!
What a deal I just got on this GENESIS v2100. I went to Wal-Mart the last week of Feb.2011 to look at bikes after checking on-line at different stores. WalMart had the best prices and selection so thats where I went. After looking at different ones, the V2100 was the most appealling and sharpest looking. I sat on it and it felt real good and the price was great, $149. I didn't have the money at the time , so I will have to return later. Two weeks went by before I went back to buy the V2100 and the Wal-Mart I went to was sold out. They had 4 in stock at my first visit. Well today 3/13/11, went to a different Wal-Mart to pick a few things up and at the same time I checked the bikes. Well they had 2 V2100 in stock and assembled. This is where it gets really good. The dept. manager asked if I needed help with anything. I told him i was wanting to see the Genesis V2100 mountain bike. He said he had two and they were the last ones they will get for awhile. He told me he can give me a special deal on one of the V2100. It was missing the decals on one side and if I bought it now he would knock $50 off the price. So I jumped on that deal and paid only $100 for the bike. After picking up a few items for the bike(gel seat, headlamp/taillamp, and lock), I road the bike home approx. 3 miles. The bike rode great, the shifting worked perfect, the brakes perfect, and the ride smooth. Myself, I found out how out of shape I was but, this is the first bike I owned in around 40 years. I will be using it every day back and forth to work approx. 3 miles round trip and around the neighborhood for exercise and to really get in shape. I would really recommend this bike to anyone who wants a quallity product like the V2100 at a great price.
Rated 5 out of 5 by specialca This was a birthday gift to me.
I brought this bike for my birthday and gave it a spin and I was very impressed with the smoothness of the bike even going up the hill. And yes it took me a second to figure out the kickstand being that it was not the traditional kickstand. LOL Other then that I have not hit a bump but if I do I will look into a better set of wheels. I saw a Schwinn with similar features for $229.00. This is a great bike for the price I don't regret purchasing it.
Rated 5 out of 5 Genesis V2100 bicycle
I love this bike. bought it 2 days ago and and road 2 miles on it right away and then just got done riding a 6 mi ride, which included dirt rocks grass mud street riding loose gravel and sum choppy rocks i guess supposed to be used as steps...up hill down hill..its a very good bike.
i will agree however that the seat is a lil ruff on the tush but its an easy fix...love the suspension. when i was 1st looking for a bike to ride to campus and back home an to take back to idaho and ride rougher trails i didnt really want to spend $400+ for a good good mt bike. this 1 i know i wont be going entirely rough back woodsy but what it handled today i was impressed. and its a very good looking bike..
right when i bought it 2 of my guy friends told me to keep an eye on it otherwise they'd snatch it from me lol good bike
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ridinginstlucie Bike is great for the price...Rides good, no problems at all...I would only recommend a better seat, metal pedals, and have the brakes and gears tuned at a local bike shop!!!
I have received nothing but excellent comments from friends and family...Enjoy!!!
Rated 2 out of 5 by TwinDadInTampa May be returning it today :(
I bought this bike after reading the tons of positive reviews about it. I have owned a Schwinn Solution Mountain Bike for about 7 years and it was slowing breaking apart. When I compare this to the Schwinn I had, it lost in many points. Not trying to compare this to a $600 Trek...but a similarly priced Schwinn.
1. Fit and finish is sub-par. The paint job is not clean. There are smudges and blotches at various edges.
2. The front suspension is namesake. It seems to have the "spring" but not the dampening. When comparing with my RST forks on my Schwinn, this one seemed way too clumsy.
3. The Trigger shifters are lot less smoother than the SRAM grip shifters on my Schwinn. May be these can be tuned but the little I tried, I wasn't able to get them smooth enough.
4. The Front Disk Brakes just don't have the braking power. I don't see any advantage having these disks over the V brakes on my Schwinn.
5. The Rear suspension almost feels like a disadvantage. Feels bouncy and wobbly over bumps. Again I guess it has the springiness but is lacking the dampening.
6. The pedal comes very close to the front tire. This may not be a disadvantage for everyone but me being 6'1" and wearing size 11 shoes, I have to be very careful not to hit the tire with my shoe while turning.
I'm not sure why most of the lower rated reviews have been downvoted to not be helpful. Hopefully you will read this before buying and spending time assembling and tuning before ending up returning it like me. I most likely will spend 40 bucks and give my 7 yr old Schwinn a tune up and end up keeping it.
Rated 3 out of 5 by bloodlustindulgence less than expected
i decided to get into mountain biking and i looked at this bike. however i ended up buying a base model specialized hardrock. my girlfriend decided she wanted to ride along but didn't want to spend as much so i directed her to this bike. It has good reviews from a lot of people, its "made by kent" and its just a cool looking bike, but thats the end of my praises for it. after riding this bike i hated it. the frame is super small 17" at tops, i'm 5'11 and felt like a giant on this. my toe hit the tire if i turned the wheel and i wear a pretty average 10.5 shoe. the front suspension is awful and i doubt it even has 50mm of travel when most entry level bikes are 80-100mm. the inner bars of the fork are painted to look like separate pieces. and they're painted pretty poorly with overspray on the tubes if you look close. this bike doesn't have a quick disconnect front wheel which is pretty standard now so you'll need to carry tools to drop the front wheel. i think the handlebars are smaller than standard size. the seat is pretty hard but not as bad as people say. all mountain bike seats are pretty hard but they're stable. i really like that the bike has trigger shifters but i think building the shifter into the brake lever was a terrible idea. if you break one you'll be replacing both pieces. plus the levers are a really soft plastic. i cant do any climbing on this bike not even small paved inclines that are simple on my hardrock. the gearing is pretty tough. i've been upgrading my specialized and putting of my stock parts on the v2100 and its slowly becoming a good bike. i swapped out the forks for the factory specialized SR Suntour 80mm forks and it made a world of difference. 80mm is a small fork still (im currently riding 170mm) but the steering is better, the tire no longer bashes my toe, and its not a painted to look like something its not. the factory wheels arent great but i swapped the front wheel for a p. series front disc wheel with quick disconnect and it feels better, thankfully genesis used average disc brake mount sizes, it bolted right on to the new fork and wheel. also this bike can be made better just by going over it and adjusting everything. the brakes were awful when we got this but tightening up the cables helps a lot. i upgraded to disc brakes on my bike and took my factory V-brake and installed it on the rear of the v2100, its smaller lighter and way stronger so that improved the rear brake a lot but i think good pads would be just as good. so all in all prepare to spend money having the bike set up or be prepared to do it yourself. if youre new to biking a poorly adjusted bike will make you hate it and you wont even know its the bikes fault. you can pick up a better fork for under 80$ check with your local bike shop. many people upgrade and just leave factory parts at the shop. this bike is made cheap but its also 150$ a name brand bike is going to be at least 320$ or more. If youre really wanting to ride, go off the beaten path, do some drops or small jumps, dont buy this bike. if you're just wanting something to ride on clean trails it may be a good bike for you. keep in mind this frame is short!
Rated 5 out of 5 by thekingofbargains Replace the Peddles!!!
I researched this bike for the pros and cons for couple months. I was already aware of the plastic peddles needing to be replaced. I went to a local bike store and purchased METAL (not plastic) peddles for less than $12. When I went to Wal-Mart to get the bike; I saw the same bike at the clearance section due to broken peddles. I inspected the bike for any other flaws but could not find anything else. Due to someone not researching and returning the bike, I got the bike for $90...thanks for the return buddy! The bike is perfect with the new peddles!!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mavictb Looks cool lol
Ok so Im fresh of off a 6 mile ride on this thing and my first impression is this is a decent light trail bike for the money... I have raced bikes for 5 years and have spend 10 times the amount I did on this bike on a single race bike.
use: Currently im using this as a commuter to work 6 miles one way on mostly pavement and some flat gravel. I also use it for light trail duty.
no use of puttin miles on the Gary Fisher lol.
Pros: Looks pretty sweet, not that heavy considering the price point and being dual suspension. (I had it on the scale reading 38.5lbs) and thats with front and rear lights.
even though they are low quality i like the rapidfire shifters.
Cons: Front disk brake!!! its soooo weak! I would rather have a v-brake up front than the cheap disk, suspension is garbage but on par with the price point, a little heavy but manageable and again not to bad considering the price. rear suspension is super stiff... I weigh 210lbs and even with all my weight im only getting maybe an inch of travel... i even loosened the preload but no better... but thats okay I prefer hardtails anyway.
its hard for me to not talk about the cons but im sure thats due to my being used to a bike that costs 10 times as much.
for what it is this is a great bike. just dont expect to do any heavy trail riding without breaking things.
p.s. it wheelies very nice lol

I have owned this bike a week now and have logged over 100 miles, the only thing I can tell you is change the seat. I put my old seat on which is larger and padded with gel sections. Have the bike checked at your local bike shop as the shift cables needed adjusted. There is one thing I would like to see added to this bike and that is a rear disc brake or a retro-fit kit and a way to raise the handle bars up. Otherwise this bike is great.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sloth020 Great bike for your buck
It's been two months now and it's still going strong. I had to replace the paddles as it's not very strong. I have had no other problems with the bike. I take it out for a ride on the single trek trails and it's been great fun. The bike handles OK. The back suspension is not to bad for the price. I have pushed the biked to 24 mph down a single track trail and it's still in one piece. I would recommend this bike, but if you want to go faster and not worry I would buy a better bike. The front suspension is not that good at dealing with the bumps, but it keeps you busy while you race down the trail. The bike is also very heavy, but it adds to the fitness experience.
Rated 4 out of 5 by slickwil Good bike for the money
I purchased this bike to replace a cheap 60 dollar bike. My wife and i decided to get in better shape by biking and the cheap mountain bike was like dragging an anchor down the road, when i saw this bike i was impressed by the looks but i was even more impressed with the perfomance, i dont dread having to ride as much as i did with the cheap bike so its a good bike for the money. after reading the other reviews i will upgrade my pedals to avoid any problems. overall i am happy with my purchase.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Activelife1 Know what you are buying...
This is a good value if you know what you are buying. For anyone doing serious mountain biking/trail riding this is NOT the bike for you. For the average person looking to get out for a casual or even semi-intense ride on paved trails this bike will do fine. Some thing to keep in mind: whether you assemble the bike yourself or have Walmart do it chances are you are going to have to tune it. If this intimidates you in any way or you have no experience pay a bike shop to get the brakes and gears tuned as well as check the spoke and bolt tension. You will pay anywhere from $25-$60 but it's well worth it.
Now for the actual review: bike rides comfortably, shifts and brakes smoothly (after it's tuned) and is comfortable for someone my size (6'3", 195lbs). I would recommend getting a seat pad or replacing with a broader seat if it is uncomfortable. Overall, a nice bike for the price for casual/weekend riding.
Rated 4 out of 5 by kadrik0 Great Walmart Bike
A few weeks ago I bought a Schwinn 26" Sidewinder bike. I loved it. However, the seat was hard, no disc breaks, only front suspension, and a gearing problem. I loved the ride, but not being able to use all the gears was a negative. No matter what I tried I could not reach the front gear 3. I ended up taking it back and got the Genesis V2100. I've had it for a week and I like this bike. It rides as good as the $148 Schwinn bike. The front disc break is awesome. The aluminum frame seems helps to eliminate alot of the impact from the road. The shifters are smooth and better than the schwinns. The schwinn I had to turn the handle and on this there are just levers that are easy and gentle on your hands. The seat is stiff and I have a bigger butt. I am 6'3" and 292 pounds. My bones come off the seat and it starts to get uncomfortable after a few blocks. I highly recommend the Schwinn PillowTop seat. Wider for bigger butts, softer in the right spots, it does not hurt your butt, it does not hurt your back, but not too soft for faster rides. The kickstand is a little weird. You have to push it up and down on this little black clip above the spring on the kickstand to make it move. This can do some small jumps and you won't move down alot on impact (and I'm almost 300 pounds, that says something). The ride is very smooth. I did buy some metal pedals off amazon for $10 and I will be replacing my pedals. My whole family is getting into bike riding and we will be traveling on the independence bike trail. I do not want my pedal to break off on that trail so I am replacing my pedals to be proactive. Just budget $25 more for this bike. I got that schwinn bike seat and the metal 9/16 pedals for just about $26 and free shipping on amazon. This is a great and sturdy bike. It is a little heavier, but you only notice that when you have to lift it up. I want a heavier bike since I know I can trust it to support me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JimTheRunner Sturdy bike, needs some adjusting before riding
If you're going to buy this bike, you should take it to a local bike shop to get a tune up before you ride, or even have them build it for you so they can work out all the bugs and make sure everything is nice and tight (My issues: both wheels out of true [would slightly wobble when spun], loose spokes on both wheels, front and rear brake adjustments [both brakes would rub the wheels without being pressed], new pedal installation since the ones that came with the bike shattered off). Other than that, its a solid bike. I've put a few miles on it and haven't had any issues since I got the tune up.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Averageguy75 Don't waste your money
O.k., at first glance this bike looks great. But once you go for a ride on it, things start falling apart. Now I'm not talking about a hard mountain trail. I mean around the block in a suburban neighborhood. The shifter knobs start to bend and break off after the first 5 minutes of shifting because they're made out of cheap plastic. The peddles have the same problem. the right one completely broke off, and the left one is on its way. This was only after one slow ride. For $165, I thought i was getting a good one but I guess not. ... The pic on the actual website shows a guy jumping 3 feet in the air with it. I hope he's O.k. after he landed. They didn't show that pic though. Wal mart sells other bikes as well that are good quality, so you might be better off looking at those.

I got this one from Walmart, an excellent bike.. great looking.. very smooth, good shocks, easy to use gears, small seat tho, you may have to replace the seat... but the best bike when compared to Mongoose..
Rated 5 out of 5 by jlowrey83 Great bike for the $$$
First, this is a sharp looking bike. I've gotten a few compliments on it after only having it a week. I've peeled almost all of the ridiculous stickers off though.
Pros- Shimano drivetrain, dual suspension, front disc, looks GREAT.
Cons- No rear disc, plastic pedals that feel small, handlebar neck isn't adjustable.
Overall- Great bike, good looks. I've added some stuff already(saddlebag, headlight, chain slapguard). But I need to add more. Wider aluminum pedals, and maybe firmer shocks up front.
Rated 3 out of 5 by CraigKC Burning Man Test
I bought this bike to take to Burning Man 2010 -- a test in its own right. Despite professional derailleur adjustment before leaving the chain still dragged and clicked a lot in several gears. The seat rides like a warped 2"x4" and I broke one of the cheap plastical pedals off. This was all in the first 2 days of riding in the middle of the flat desert without a bump bigger than my thumb for 100 miles. The kickstand is quirky with a special dance to make it retract and in its default setup leaves the bike nearly straight up so a decent wind knocks it right over (which I imagine contributed to the broken pedal).
However, the overall fit, grips, shocks, shimano shifters, and front disk brake are all positives I enjoyed quite a lot. The bike looks like a million bucks, and rides about like $120. Pick up some real pedals, a new seat, and modify the kickstand and you've got a pretty decent setup for a little over $200. I'd give 4 stars if they would have fixed these items to start with.
I hope the image attachment shows up.... and yes, that bike in the image is a V2100 -- after some vintage 60s decoration and 7 days at Burning Man!
Rated 1 out of 5 by moneyvalue I only had this bike for less than a month, and already returned it. I read most of the reviews on it, and thought that it'd be a good bike. Both of the pedals broke by my second ride in the mountains. I took it for a spin on the road and it seemed nice. If you only plan to ride it on the road, maybe it'd be a decent purchase. The shocks were ok for the road, but bottomed out on the trails. The gear shifters worked well. I was concerned that the pedals were an indicator of the long-term durability of the bike so I returned it. My advice is to stay away completely if you plan to get into mountain biking.
