Zerode Taniwha 27.5 Full Suspension

DESCRIPTION

The Taniwha is everything we believe manifested in a tangible form. Its more than just a bike. It is a platform to give you the best possible riding experience & inspire you to ride your best. Its us thinking differently, pushing the boundaries of what an enduro bike can be and taking a big stab at the status quo. Without a doubt, it excites us & we hope it excites you too.

Strength:

I bought the Taniwha because I like mountain bikes, and the gearbox intrigued me. I didn't plan on it being my main bike, just a fun alternative for some fair weather riding. After 18 months, I have to admit that it's the best bike I've owned, by far. Instant, reliable, solid shifting, nearly zero maintenance, excellent suspension response. Built it as a mulet, with 29er in front, 27.5 x 2.8 in the back. It swallows eastern PA rock gardens like none of my other bikes. It exceeded my expectations to the point that I hardly ride my Specialized Enduro and Stumpjumper anymore.

Weakness:

So it is a little heavier, especially with the use of a coil shock, but I don't care about that. I care about reliability deep in the woods, no derailleur to rip in a nasty rock garden, no missed shifts, no maintenance. It is an excellent machine. No one rides it but me. Definitely a keeper.
