Fuji Tahoe 1.5
For great off-road capability at a reasonable price, look no further than this Tahoe 1.5 mountain bike from Fuji.
Occupying the sweet spot for affordability, component selection and off-road capabilities, this Tahoe will probably do everything you want.
This bike works well for the off-road beginner and occasional rider, with large wheels that have tremendous traction and roll over larger obstacles without a second thought. Fast and durable, it will stand up to the rain and mud for many seasons.
The Rockshox fork contributes to the great ride quality of this bike by giving you adjustable air spring pressure, adjustable rebound damping, and a lock-out switch on the handlebars. By the way, Fuji’s front-end geometry is quite a bit different from other similar twenty-niners so this bike rides sportier and quicker on tight single-track than other designs.
A simple tire swap would make this an excellent “Dual Sport” bike, fast rolling on the pavement but sturdy and stable when venturing off the asphalt. Remember, the Rockshox fork can be locked out with a flick of your thumb for efficient cruising on the roads. Racks and fenders work just fine too.
