The Thruster Excalibur Mountain Bike is a great entry level bike for those who are looking to explore the world of mountain biking without spending a fortune. However, potential customers should keep in mind that this bike does not have quick release tires and is much heavier than a high quality mountain bike.
While the weight of this bike adds to the bike’s durability, it also makes it somewhat less responsive when traveling over rough terrain. This bike actually seems more suited to be a trail bike useful for riding over rough ground and climbing smaller hills rather than expecting it to perform like a high or even average quality mountain bike.
There are very few reviews for this bike anywhere to be found on the Internet. Quite possibly because when you consider this bike’s more than reasonable price most users really don’t expect much from it in the way of performance and tend to buy those mountain bikes that run $500 to $600 more than the price of this bike. The few reviews that are for this bike are good. Users find this bike to be:
- Good Looking– This is a nice looking bike, that will catch the eye of the most people.
- Fairly Good For the Price- Users really did not expect much of a bike for this price range so they were actually pleased to discover that this is a fairly solid bike.
While the Thruster Excalibur Mountain bike may not be anything to write home about it is a suitable entry level mountain bike for a more reasonable price.
