5/5 Ease of Use
5/5 Meets Expectations
Reviewer: jane k. from santa fe, nm
User Details: I am 59. When I bought the XTR, I was 30 pounds heavier than I was in 1986 when I ran my last marathon. After less than two weeks on the XTR, I am on
Strengths: The bike is very easy to ride and was easy to adjust to fit me. Mountain gears take me up the big hills. The bike is well built and looks like it will give me many years of good service. The BEST thing about the bike is it allows me to get active again, outdoors, in the sun, and gives me that all-over physical joy I had when I was a runner.
Weaknesses: The chain tensioner needs to be reconfigured so the hex head bolts do not dig into the front wheel. A nice guy at the local hardware store custom cut two pan head bolts for me and that solved the problem.
