Couldn’t be happier with my purchase! I have been wanting a co-op bike ever since REI started selling them.
I bought approx one month ago and am very happy I did! The bike performs well and has features comparable to that of a thousand dollar bike. Service was great as always. A very fun basic hardtail that feels good on both climbs and descents
This bike has some really nice features for the price: air suspension forks with remote lockout, hydraulic disc brakes, Shimano derailleur, wide bars, and a good seat. Steep (relatively speaking) head tube gives me confidence climbing, but is not ideal for fast, technical downhills. Derailleur shifts hard under high stress climbs. I really wish it had come with a 1x or a 2x drive chain.
I test rode many new bikes before I bought the DRT 1.2, and overall the DRT 1.2 was the most comfortable for me. The component group and fork is nicer than most of the comparable LBS options in the same price range. I thought the hydraulic discs were unnecessary at first, but after putting about 150 miles on it since purchase, I have to say the hydraulic discs are very nice. The forks are a 1.5" to 1.125" taper, so changing or upgrading in the future will be very easy since most all the new forks are for tapered headset. It's a little heavier than other options but it's not really an issue for me. The seat is a WTB Volt which I believe it 142mm (measured mine), and it is very comfortable, although it does not look like it would be, so another pleasant surprise. Overall I am happy with the purchase and would not hesitate to buy another co-op in the future.
I have abused this bike for a little over a year now, all I have had to replace were the tubes and tires. Nothing has broken. I have gone off of some big nice jumps. I have mastered the wheelie (which I previously tried to learn on a walmart bike) It's a great beginner bike, more than one.
I bought this bike a few weeks ago and I'm really happy with it. Pretty rough ride on technical trails but it's a HT. Very smooth on flowing trails. Breaks stop on a dime, shifts smooth and have received a lot of compliments on it.
I had a 10 year old entry level mountain bike and brought this one as an upgrade. Wow what an upgrade! As per Strava I’m much faster but more importantly it’s more fun! Love this bike!! Service was great too.
I’ve had this bike for about a year now. I love it! It’s durable. I weigh 200 lbs and believe me when I say I have put this bike through all the tests.
I have only had my new bike for a few weeks but love it so far! Easy to ride and very comfortable. I'm a newbie to mountain biking and I think I picked up the right bike to start with. I'm excited to get it on the trails, learn some new skills and become a member of the MTB community.
Decent bike for the price! But, will leave you wanting more.
Nice bike, but definitely not true to size. An xl feels like a large. If only there was a 2xl lol
Excellent quality for the price, been out a few times
I bought this bike one day and took it to Duthie Hill only to be disappointed because I only got to ride it for maybe an hour and pushed it back from the hills because the chain snapped. Bad thing is I was on a gravel road and not doing anything tough, like a trail, this was a service road. Big disappointment for me. Maybe the bikes aren't built with quality parts, chains that is.
Bought a few weeks ago to get into MTB for the first time. I originally wanted the DRT 1.1 but after reading the reviews on the 1.2 I changed my mind. Key reasons: stronger frame, front fork lockout, internal wire routing, and overall better quality components and ready for upgrades when things break. I’ve put about 15 “beginner” miles on the bike and it has been pleasant to say the least. Suspension is okay, shifting is okay, brakes are okay, but to me (my own opinion) the best thing is that the bike feels very sturdy and strong on the trail. I know this bike is entry level but I feel confident that this bike will hold up on intermediate trails. The bike pros at REI were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I will be a returning customer when it comes tome for component upgrades and/or a new bike. Looking forward to putting more miles on this bike and seeing more of the outdoors!
I bought the bike yesterday just looking at the specs for the price I immediately bought it. The specs is equal to $1,000 worth on other bikes w/c may not be even.
I've had this bike for a few months, and it's a fun cruiser for basic singletrack, a little street riding and pump tracks. I live in north Florida so it works well for this area. The spec is good for beginners but if you plan on riding anything that isn't pretty mellow than I would save up and buy a serious bike.
Good bike for the value, got it on sale ($500 off). The bike has nice components, and the only problem I had was that gears 1-2 and 1-3 do not work well. Will schedule a check-up.
This is a good intro bike I got for my wife to ride.
Great bike, had a small issue that REI took care of immediately. There's no comparison for the money at a few hundred more.
I have this bike for a couple days and I am happy with my purchase. Great quality bike for a good price.
What is the rider weight limit for a DRt 1.2?
