- Handles well
- Quality components
What Else To Know:
- Available in Charcoal Metallic and Chi Red
- G2 Geometry for better handling
- Limited warranty on frame, rigid fork, and original component part of the bicycle
- Heavier than the usual hardtail
This bike handles really well because of its improvised geometry with increased fork offset. The only downside to the Tarpon is casual users may find it heavier than most hardtail mountain bikes. The price is relatively proportion to the bike’s good components.
If you don’t mind having to use a heavy bike then this is a great bike over all.
