K2 Shadow 9 29er Mountain Bike
Whoa! This is a lot of bike for not a lot of money. The 21-speed K2 Shadow 9 29er's loaded with features found on bikes going for a heck of a lot more. You get a sturdy 6061 aluminum 29" frame with Suntour suspension fork, quality Shimano shifters, and even disc brakes. And, of course, the super traction and roll-over-virtually-anything karma that makes 29ers so much fun to ride.
  • Rugged aluminum frame is designed to stand up to off-road riding
  • Large 29" wheels have a larger footprint for better traction and obstacle clearance
  • SRAM 21-speed twist shifters provide accurate, reliable gear changes
  • Suntour suspension fork to smooth out bumps

          The 29inch wheels are great. Frame looks good. Had to change out rear freewheel cluster for lower ratios.
          Good value for the money.

          Getting to the age where I feel silly riding Ti. Mt. bikes or full suspension on recreational paths. Great gap filler for days off the road or gnarly trails. For about the price of an average set of wheels, I got the whole bike!

          I wanted to try a 29er but didn't want to spend a ton of money. this is the best value I was able to find. shipping was quick, and everything arrived in good shape. I haven't had a chance to ride a lot, but so far I am pleased with the bike. This is the second bike I have bought from Nashbar along with several other items, and I will continue to do business with them in the future

            front wheel needs trueing right out of box. Frame is nice. Shifters not as smooth as I had hoped and need adjusting before very usable. Not bad for the money but will spend fifty bucks or so to true wheel and adjust shifters I'm sure.

            Not a bad bike, just a low end bike.

            Comments about K2 Inc. K2 Shadow 9 29er Mountain Bike:

            Looking at finally jumping to a 29er, I wanted an option I could spend a lot of time on without spending a lot of money. This popped up on my radar and after doing some research I decided, for the money, to pull the trigger.

            The Goods:
            The frame quality, (welds & finish) were better than I expected at this price range and overall the fork, stem, bars, seatpost and crankset are better than your average super center bike. the hardware (bolts, cap screws, etc...) is more on par with your entry to mid-level name brands (GT, Trek, Specialized). I purchased a medium size frame and it was perfect for me at 5'10".

            The Bads:
            Wheels will need to be trued. Brake calipers have one sided adjustment like an Avid BB5 and need to be repositioned as they rub on the rotors out of the box. Shifters and derailleurs will need adjustment. Normal assembly issues save for the wheel truing.

            Bottom Line:
            At roughly $280.00 + shipping, you are going to be hard pressed to find something this decent for an entry level bike. I'm planning on upgrading the shifters (I have a thing against twist grips) and maybe cassette, but other than those items planning on riding it as is. Maybe not a fair comparison between the $800.00-$1200.00 26er's I have been riding, but a way to get into a 29er with a lot less money up front and plenty of options to upgrade components later.
