Gary Fisher Mamba 29er

The Gary Fisher Mamba 29er is priced to appeal to a relatively wide audience and although its cost is pretty pocket friendly, it is not a meek machine and offers top draw thrills for people who do not want to spend thousands of pounds on a mountain bike. As such, enthusiasts will be able to get a great deal out of this bike whilst those who are less able to use it either through a lack of time or commitment can still get in on the act for a suitable price.

The components of the Mamba straddle the line between affordable and high performance. Therefore, you get disc brakes but they are mechanically operated whereas more expensive bikes in this range will feature hydraulic brakes. This may sound like a compromise but the performance delivered is not drastically curbed by the reduction in overall costs. You still get an aluminium frame with hydroformed tubing and a RockShox Tora fork offering 100mm of travel, so not every area has been subject to trimming and even those that have will still be more than capable of helping budding cyclists to conquer complex courses.

The simple grey and black colour scheme of the Gary Fisher Mamba 29er, which is picked out with blue patterns, is not over the top and prefers hard angles to the softer sweeps and swoops which many other mountain bikes feature. It lacks the appeal of more extreme designs for the flamboyant at heart but it does look like a serious piece of work that is difficult to distinguish from the bikes that are much higher up the ladder in terms of price, allowing casual observers to have no clue as to its affordability.
