Atroz Comp 27.5in Complete Mountain Bike - 2017 by Diamondback
As much as we love mountain biking here at Competitive Cyclist, we can't argue that it's often on the higher end of most people's affordability scale, often exceeding the budgets of entry-level riders, or at the very least, stretching things to the absolute limit. This budget busting is amplified by full-suspension bikes, which are inherently more complex, causing the price to go up due to additional engineering needs. However, every now and again you'll find brands like Diamondback satisfying the entry-level trail rider with the Atroz Comp 27. 5in Complete Mountain Bike packing reliable components and a single-pivot suspension design that's affordable, easy to service, and fun to ride on the trail.

The bike's sturdy 6061-T6 aluminum frame delivers high levels of durability, so you're not worried about pushing the bike to the limit. Up front, 120-millimeters of suspension is handled by a RockShox Recon Silver fork (coil version), which works well at smoo...

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
