Buying a dual suspension mountain bike

Postby modestyisgood » Thu Oct 18, 2012 3:46 pm

Hi all,
I am seriously considering buying this Polygon Mountain Bike from bicyles online but would like to get some help first. Fits my budget around $1500.

FRONT SUSPENSION-FOX 36 TALAS R 160 O/B

REAR SUSPENSION-FOX FLOAT RP23

HANDLEBAR-SYNCROS AM40 GRUNGE

STEM-SYNCROS AM GRUNGE

SADDLE-FIZIK ZEAK

SEATPOST-SYNCROS AM GRUNGE

CRANKSET-SHIMANO SLX FC-M660

WHEELSET-MAVIC CROSSLINE

1. Have anyone ridden polygon mountain bikes before?
2. Is the bike worth the money?

Thank you for all the advices in advance

At $1500 that is a lot of nice parts. The Fork alone sells for between $600 and $1200.

That is an all mountain bike. You can ride it up mountains but it is designed to be ridden down quite rough terrain.

The next model up got a good review in the latest Mountain Biking Australia magazine.

My bike blog. Long on rumination, rambling and opinion. Why let facts ruin everything?

Similar but not the same ... at least it is a report on the brand...
