I knew this wouldnt be a high end bike, that isnt what it was meant to be, it did however survive much more rigorous tests than the last bike i bought at mor ethan twice the price of this one, i lost the disk brakes on the last one in the first 5 hours, this bike had a much more stressful first test, about 60 miles, some tar roads, some dirt bike paths, and even a few hours of heavy biking on mountain bike specific trails and difficult singletrack, the only problems i have had are with the haldbar assemblies, the screw clamps on them werent able to grip when i stood up, since up hills the force of pedaling pulls the bike to each side and handlebars are used to balance so that doesnt have effect. They repeatedly came loose until i tightened them as hard as i could and that worked until the clamps that made it so the handlebars stayed perpendicular to the wheel came loose and I am not sure whether to see if it is an easy fix or if i will have to replace the bar mount or send it back to get fixed by walmart, and i would honestly rather fix it myself so i dont have to go weeks without a bike. However, this was much more stressful than most people would use this for, it is just as good quality as my last bike which lasted 5 years mostly on dirt road and simple bike path use. i did use it on single track and more difficult trails in the last year but at that point it was already 4 years of wear and tear. that was also a mongoose of similar design. The seat on this bike is simply aweful, at least on long rides, it is 3/4 to 1 inch too narrow and has very little padding at all, as my friend said when he tested it out, "its liek sitting on a brick" but anyway i swapped it with the seat from my old bike which is a more comfortable mongoose seat. The shimano derailers and parts are good quality for a bike in this price range, and the frame and shock/suspencion system on this bike are very nice ompared to others this cheap. You dont find bikes at 140$ with metal pedals (very nice) and shocks that are good enough to not move much when i sit on the bike (170lbs) and still do a great job cushioning rocks and pot holes. The brakes are also very good for the basic liniar pull brakes they are, and if they wear out, they are very cheap to replace, unlike disk brakes that cost 300-500$ new. The frame on the bike is a smaller frame, probably too small for what i needed, as i am about 6'4" and probably would be more comfortable with a 29er or at least a frame with a taller seat post support/mount. the post on the seat is long enough so that i can tolerate it with my long legs. The bike looks great, the cobalt blue and nickel silver are a great combination, and the bike looks very sleek and clean. "you get what you pay for" i think in this case you get a little bit more, not much, but enough so i am very happy with it even with the negatives that came with it, and i tested it mor ethan most people will need it. give it love and you will get love back.

I wanted a new, economical bike for Christmas, and had researched bikes for a month before deciding on this model. Having been an avid bike rider from years ago, I new all the good features to look for, and this bike is packed with features only found in more expensive models and brands. One of the key features is the light weight aluminum frame and wheels. Light weight means everything in cycling. I love the newer twist gear shifters too, combined with the shock absorbers makes for a very comfortable ride. The necessary partial assembly was easy. The other reviews I have read that complained about the initial setup, could have been easily solved with the easy to read instructions on how to fine tune the bikes parts, gears, chain, and shifters. My only disappointment is that this model does not have the factory screws for mounting a water bottle cage. I am now so excited about getting back into cycling with my new Mongoose Ledge 2.1 bicycle! Without a doubt this is the best bike on the market in it's price range!

Alot better than the Havoc 26"

I originally bought the Havoc 26" mens mountain bike. It would not shift properly or keep air in the tires. I returned it for the Mongoose Ledge 2.1. This bike shifts smoother and rides overall better than the Havoc. The front shocks seem to be a little better than the Havoc also. It seems to be a smoother overall ride compared to the Havoc. I am 6'3" 240lb and this bike is perfect for my size/weight. I did change out the seat for the Bell memory foam seat. I raised the handlebar, pumped up the tires and adjusted brakes before riding. I have not had an issues yet. I like this bike a lot better than the Havoc. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra $6 for this bike if you are looking for something in this price range. I am a newbie at bike riding so this is my starter bike. I am hoping this bike will last me a while till I get the itch for bigger/better bike, but so far so good and happy with my Ledge.

Have owned this bike for a month now and the only thing I have had to do is get a more comfortable seat.The stock seat is a bit hard for me on rides.Other than that the bike rides good shift's great and if you take care of it don't believe you would have any problems with it.

I've had the bike for a couple of months now. It seems to be holding up pretty well for the daily use i put on it. (about 5 miles a day) The first thing i noticed was the frame length. When you turn sharply the front tire will scrub your foot. This bike is definitely suited for a shorter person. (I'm 5' 8") The gear shifter works okay no adjustments needed. The seat is not comfortable. If you're not a regular bike rider and will only use the bike recreationally you will want a seat cushion or a new seat. It has steel pedals where most are coming with plastic. (bonus) If you are basing any part of your decision on the fact that it has the rear shock know this. Unless you are doing some serious off road biking with large drops this is not something you need. I ride in an urban / sub-urban area with lots of curbs, medians, grass hills, etc. and it does nothing for the bike but add weight. Front shocks are good enough. My last bike was front shock only and worked exceedingly well. Also the bike seems to lean to the right really bad when I ride with no hands. I do this allot to keep my back upright. Much more difficult to keep in line than with my last bike. I wish I had just went ahead and bought the same bike I had last tome. Shwinn Alumicomp. 26" http://www.walmart.com/ip/Schwinn-Aluminum-Comp-26-Men-s-All-Terrain-Bike/16913452 This is a much better bike! (Minus the plastic pedals, no biggie!) SPEND THE EXTRA MONEY!!!!! Trust me!

  • A. I weigh 200 or so and I've almost wiped out a number of times in 1 month of ownership when the pedals both broke off and it shifted into gear up a hill a few minutes after I turned the shifting handle. I say if you do buy one I hope you are careful.

  • A. it will, 26" bikes tend to work for upwards of 350, but I would recommend a 29" bike. preferably an ironhorse.

  • A. If you have short legs and buy a new seat (new seat for anyone!!!) I think it would be ok. If you are a tall big guy, then buy a 27 or bigger bike. I think the gearing would be ideal.

  • A. As a guy who weighs 260 I would say no. You need to look at a 29 inch tire or 700c wheel bike and do not get rear suspension. On low end bikes they are spring only and will be useless for you.

  • A. We have to ride a lot of street to get from trail to trail and this bike ride great on the street. Light and easy to maneuver and ready for the trails once you reach them. I ride right from my house to the trails on the road for about 2 miles. It's comfortable and a piece of cake with this ride.

  • A. If you're using it to get from point a to point b, yes, I frequently ride mine downtown on shopping trips and it works very well. If you're planning to bike on the road for fitness, this is not a road bike, it does not get up to speed as quickly as a road bike would, and you would extend a great deal more energy than it would probably be worth in exercise value trying to maintains speed on hilly or curvy roads.

  • A. It is fine in the street, but is designed for trail travel. A 'street' bike would be preferable if one is only going to be riding on the street because a street bike will afford a more comfortable seat, more efficient wind resistance, and you get those cool glittering straps on the handlebars....lol.
