Here's something special from the Coyote team. It's an affordable 29er featuring a bombproof Coyote high tensile steel frame with purposeful 29er geometry. It's designed for riders who are looking to roll over obstacles without losing momentum and taller riders looking for a more natural frame geometry. Coyote 29er suspension forks help smooth out the bumps to prevent fatigue. Drivetrain components are from the market leader Shimano. They consist of front and rear Shimano derailleurs with 21 speed Shimano S.T.I. push button shifters, a Shimano seven speed freewheel and a Shimano triple chainset. All combine to produce easy to operate pin sharp gear selection. The Everglades punches well above its weight in the stopping department with powerful cable actuated disc brakes, fantastic in all conditions. It rolls along on a bullet proof pair of lightweight double wall white Coyote CNC rims with black disc brake hubs and rustless spokes. Brilliant entry-level 21 speed 29er mountain bike.

The wheels aren't bad. They are not quick release so will need a 15mm spanner handy when fixing a puncture but this was what I wanted so no problem. I removed the wheel axles to replace the grease with Teflon grease and check out the ball bearing cup in the hubs. They are ok and with the grease replaced spin better.
To build the full bike, it only needs a few cable ties snipped off to free all the parts. Pop the front wheel on, bolt the handle bars on with the allen key provided, screw on the pedals and after the seat is clamped in place, it is ready to ride. Just to note a multi-spanner is also included for maintenance.
Before I took the wheels off, I had a go on the bike. The 18" frame actually have a geometry to handle a wide range of people but I guess at 6'3" I was stretching it a bit too far! At a guess, people under 6' will be good to go with the ample seat height adjustment.
Heavier people will struggle on this bike as the front shocks will almost ground as soon as they rest their hands on the handlebars. Obviously, no lock-out feature on forks at this price and the fork springs aren't adjustable but they do work. So, the heavier you are the lower the handlebars will be when riding though lighter riders will probably not notice this (say less than 70kg - again a guess).
The trigger gears are shimano and worked perfectly as expected.Read more ›
1. The bike looks great.
It comes boxed and you have to build it (handle bars, seat post, front wheel and pedals)
2. Brake leavers and pedal are plastic and do look cheap (especially pedals)
3. Front brake cable came around back of front forks so touched tyre so had to disconnect cable bring around front and reconnect no big problem.
4. Had to adjust the gears and brakes not a big problem, (will be tinkering for a while yet)
5. Test cycling has been fine so far
6. When you press up on the gears going to 1-7 once you get to 7 it still clicks up and the chain drops off the last cog. Maybe this is normal with this type of gear system it's been a long time since I last had a bike and it was a grip shift system and I do not remember any issues like that. More than likely though components just cheap (get what you pay for).
7. There were a few small dinks and scratches in the paint work, being a bit finicky I guess.
8. The short ride I have taken on it so far has been agreeable and will update this review once I have been on a more extensive ride.
9. Mechanical brake discs one of the things that attracted me to the bike, they look good but we're not very good on first use and guess I need to wear them in a bit.
10. When first setting off the dip in the front forks is massive I am a big guy so the play in the forks is a lot but once sat on the seat seems to level out ok.
11. The grips on the handlebars are a bit loose (they would be reasonably easy to pull off).
I hope this helps out anyone wanting to get one of these bikes, they are probably one of the cheapest 29ers out there and if you are a serious biker this is probably not for you, I'm hoping this is ok for the odd trail ride I intend to be doing.
