I researched every bike available and could not find a better deal. Quality and construction are top notch and the XT component group can not be beat. I was wavering between buying a 29er or getting this 26" wheel bike. I went with the Tahoe 1.0 since I was on a budget and an this was the best deal I could find on a mountain bake with quality components. Components are the key on any bike for most riders, If I decide to get a 29er in the future I can buy a frame, fork and wheel set and switch everything over. I was very impressed with the shipping and pre delivery assembly. It looks like Backcountry took the time to assemble and adjust the bike then repacked it in a custom box. I have experience assembling bikes and was expecting to spend a day setting everything up. When the bike arrived I basically had to install the pedals, seat, and handlebars. The brakes and shifters arrived adjusted and working fine.
Great Job Backcountry Techs
