We took the geometry of our Poseidon X and amped it up so you can eat up gravel with enough tire to absorb the vibrations of a rutted-rocky trail. Redwood wheels have 27.5" thru-axle/tubeless compatible rims. Allowing a 2.6" tire to clear this frame without issues (tire and rim combos can vary). Whether you are on trails most gravel bikes would shudder at or taking in newfound sights on your next bikepacking trip the Redwood is ready.
If you have never ridden a dropbar handlebar bike or never ridden one in dirt then a flatbar may be a good option for you. It's the handlebar position you have likely known how to ride with for as long as you have been riding.
Being in a familiar riding position gives you confidence in steering and balancing. The shifting is all done with your thumb so you can maintain two fingers on the brake levers for those sudden stops.
With the flatbar you are able to fit bags and racks onto the handlebars without worrying about interfering with the handlebars themselves. Or you can leave the bags at home and ride those trails like a rigid mountain bike.
I have to say this is one excellent bike for the money!! Everything works straight out of the box, real easy to set up as well, the online tutorial made everything easy. Out and about, the gears change up and down the range smoothly, brakes stop when you need to and a very comfortable riding position. Well happy!! Thanks Poseidon!!
Couldn't be more excited about this bike. Great affordable option for getting into biking and keeping the terrain options open. Quality and style are excellent.
First off I hate those valves …. It didn’t come with any of the Allen wrenches needed to put it together .. so I had to already buy a
Special pump, and a set of wrenches. Took 10 days of buying stuff before I could even test drive it…. Seat is also very uncomfortable, after all that and the tires don’t hold air in the cold weather that good. It looks sharp, but it’s cheap and a disappointment
Sorry you had issues getting setup but our how-to videos do state what tools are needed to assemble. The Presta valve pump is the standard for modern bicycles but you may be used to the Schrader valve which is more common on big-box retailer bikes. Saddles are very specific to the user since we are all unique and have different sit bones. If you ever need any assistance with recommendations on saddles we'd be happy to help.
First of all I want to say this is a truly awesome bike. However, there are a few things that I have to say I really don't understand. First the stack. I lower my seat all the way down and still have way too much of a reach especially for long distance bikepacking ( the reason I bought this bike ). The pressure on my hands even with padded gloves really is too much. Why such a short stack? Second it doesn't seem to climb nearly as much as I had thought it would. Shifting gears on other bikes seems to work better than with this bike which I was looking for superior climbing ability when I bought this bike. The third issue I have is that the paint scratches off way too easily. I was hoping for something a lot more rugged when i decided to go with this bike. With all that said however, this is a really great bike and for the most part I am happy with my purchase. I would still recommend this bike to someone else and I'm certainly glad to own one. Thanks.
I had it assembled at Phat Tire and they said the derailer hanger was bent abnormally, and the rear break pad, disk, and calipers were uneven. Might need replacement parts
