    • A. Well, I reccomend a 26 Inch bike for him if he's that tall. the 29 inch will be MILES too tall for him. the 29 inch would be better for guys like me that are 6 foot 2 and up. I am 6 foot 5 and it was a slight bit too tall for me. I suggest asking him what his riding style is, and how aggressively he's going to ride it. If he's hard on bikes like I am, I suggest the 26 inch Mongoose Ledge 2.1 Men's Mountain bike. It is a GREAT bike for the money, and I am considering purchasing one myself. I have several friends who own that bike and they love it.

    • A. fitting a bike to him is rather easy. he should stand stradling the top bar like he is going to ride the bike. he should then lift the bike until it lightly touches his crotch.there should then be about 2" between the bottom of the tire and the ground. the front tire that is.

    • A. I'm 5' 8" and the bike is a little tall for me but I prefer it that way. This should be fine for someone who is 5' 10". The tires are "fat" since it's a mountain bike. If he's going to ride on paved roads and dirt trails, he may want to consider getting a "hybrid" type bicycle.

    • A. I would say a 26 inch because im 5'11" and it barely works for me. because you have to be able to stand over it and have 1-3 inches of space from the top bar and the crotch. so that there isnt too many accidents

    • A. The best way to choose a size is to actually stand over the bike. There should be at least 1" between the crotch and the center pole on the bike. You will also want to check the leg bend when actually seated on the bike with feet on the pedals, ideally you want a bend in the knee that feels comfortable. Hope this helps.

    I actually bought this bike twice from Walmart, it looks great and I had the first one for a week but there were problems with the front gears and that cause the plastic part to crack and break, so I changed it and bought a new seat since the seat it came with was not very comfortable. My second one broke after a week as I was going up a hill and suddenly the gears skipped and grrrrrrrrrrr and I stopped to check if anything was broken but whatever was broken was from the inside and within a week the bike got worst and eventually the gears were totally smashed inside. I did not take this on trail or anything simply going up hill and down and no jumps or anything so I don't know if I got two bad ones or the gears and all are just cheap. Well according to one bike mechanic the gears are just too cheaply made and it would eventually happen. I also had problems with the brakes as no matter how much I adjusted them they still dragged and didn't work as well as they should. So for now I think I have learned my lesson and I will go to a bike shop and try to get a more quality product or maybe try one more time since I have the credit at Walmart for a more expensive one since their return policy and extended warranty can't be beat!

    Bought this bike used from a friend....He said it had problems with the derailleur....Actually the freewheel gearset on the rear hub was totally wrecked. The tiny bearings that allowed it roll when not pedaling, had flatspotted and caused the chain to jump off. A $20 Sun Race 7 speed freewheel solved that problem. The front wheel needed to be trued, and the detent spring in the left shifter mechanism was missing. The back brakes are not very strong, even at the tightest adjustment, may need new pads. Most of this was probably due to his lack of maintenance. The bike is about what should be expected for the $219 original sale price. If you visit your local bike shop and get a few upgraded parts, the bike should be a reliable ride...

    I purchased this bike for my son a college student who needed a bike to get to campus. He had to go down some cut throughs in the woods though. He is over 6' so I chose the Deception since it is a 29er. It was already put together in the store. I originally ordered it over the internet, but the estimated shipping was slow, two weeks. I found a bike at a store, so I traveled 40 miles and picked it up. As it turned out, the shipping to the store was exactly two weeks, so I am glad I found the bike in stock. The components are entry level but very functional. The only real downer are the forks, they are sticky, not sure if they will loosen up later. I did have to true both wheels, adjust the brakes, and adjust the gears. All in all it took about 3 hours to get the bike ready to ride properly. If you do not have many tools or time, best bet would be to have a local bike shop set the bike up properly. Believe me, you do not want to ride it in the condition that I picked mine up at the store. I would purchase the bike again. The frame and wheels alone are worth $200.

    I just picked this up from Gilroy Walmart and the lady was so nice to hold the only deception on the floor. I asked her to have the bike tech run through all the gears and make sure everything was calibrated. I arrived about 2 hours later and she showed me the bike. I made sure the gears were on point, checked the disc brakes and sat on it. The bike looks fantastic, feels like a tank (in a good way, not too heavy) with huge 29" wheels that scream "fun". The first gear was a bit tight so I let her know and she said, "that's the floor model, I had our tech make a brand new one in the back." Great service and everything checked out. I tightened the brakes when I got home and removed some of the stickers. I double checked the handle bars / stem and it was off to the trail. I figure if I ride it hard and it responds well, it will be a keeper. What a keeper and for $219, that's a steal. I'm loving this bike and thanks to all the people who wrote reviews. Your info really helped me with my decision to purchase. BUY THE MONGOOSE DECEPTION and WALMART ROCKS!!!

    I took the Deception out on a pretty challenging (but fun!) trail right after I bought it. It handled great! I'm sure the more expensive bikes handle better, but at $219 this is a steal. After my fiance' rode her 26" Roadmaster on the trail, we took her bike back to Walmart with no problem and she also picked up a Deception. I love the disk brakes and quick release wheels. And the color is nice. We didn't like the grip shifters though, so we bought trigger shifters for a cheap price and they work like a charm. Also, we replaced the seat. After a little adjustment on the brakes and front derailleur, it rides great! If you want a great bike that doesn't hurt your bank account, you can't lose with the Deception 29!
