| Merchant: Nashbar Diamondback Recoil 29er Mountain Bike. Full-suspension mountain bikes don't need to be overly complicated and the Diamondback Recoil 29er shows just how that's done. The frame is built using trusted 6061-T6 aluminum alloy, so you know it's strong, while the formed and butted tubing makes sure to save weight wherever possible. The SR Suntour XCT suspension fork delivers 100mm of travel while the four inches of rear suspension will do wonders to take the edge off roots and rocks on the trail. Shimano's a name you can trust in the drivetrain department and the 3x8-speed shifters, front and rear derailleurs, and cassette work in unison to provide smooth, reliable, and responsive shifting through its 24 gears. With a triple crank up front and an 11/32T cassette on the rear hub you've got a wide range of gear options to claw your way up the steepest climbs and then put your bike to the test on the way back down. Worry not about slowing down as the Tektro Aires mechanical disc brakes are more than up to the challenge of scrubbing speed and keeping you under control no matter the weather conditions. Big, 29 wheels keep on turning and are the latest innovation in mountain biking as they reduce rolling resistance and decrease the angle of attack by allowing you to roll over obstacles, like logs or rocks, easier and faster. The Recoil serves up a rock-solid wheel option sporting reliable SL7 aluminum doublewall rims, 32-hole SL7 aluminum hubs, plus tried-and-true 14g spokes laced in a 3x pattern. Rounding out the wheelset is a set of Schwalbe Rapid Rob 29x2.25 tires that sport an aggressive, all-around tread pattern for incredible bite plus a kevlar belt to maximize puncture resistance. Now get out there and enjoy one of life's greatest pleasures - riding a bike out in the woods.
