Fezzari signal peak named best short-travel bike under $5,000
BikeMag named the Fezzari Signal Peak the best short-travel mountain bike under $5,000. Here is their article:
If you’re someone who jumps out of bed at 5:30 a.m. thinking, “Oh boy! Let’s go climb 5,000-feet!” then the Signal Peak Elite Race might just be the bike for you. With geometry numbers that trend more to the “pedal your guts out” side of things, the full-carbon Signal Peak is meant for racking up the elevation gain. However, it’s not so XC-oriented that you couldn’t go #endurbro an all-day adventure with your pals on bigger bikes. On that note, the 120-millimeter-travel Signal Peak Elite Race is smartly spec’d to keep weight down, but also keep strength for rough descents. Instead of a thoroughbred-XC fork, the Elite Race build sports a Fox 34 Step-Cast for more stiffness and strength. Other details point to the Signal Peak’s alter-ego, like its 180-/160-millimeter rotors with SRAM Level TL brakes, RaceFace Turbine R bars and a molded downtube protector. The carbon Reynolds TR 249 S wheels have a 24-millimeter-inner width, which matches nicely to the 29×2.35 Maxxis Forekasters.
Fezzari also offers the option to swap to Reynolds TR 367 S 27.5+ wheels and matching plus-size Rekon/Minion tires for no extra cost, in addition to an out-of-the-box tubeless setup and a multi-step fitting process to determine frame size, stem length and bar width. You could even opt to swap the stock X-Fusion Manic dropper for a Fox Transfer for an extra $120.
The cherry on top—you can run two water bottles in the front triangle.
