Looking for a step up in a BikeE for comfort even on rough roads? The BikeE RX uses the same frame as the FX but is tuned for road riding with modifications to the handlebars, gears & seat. The Sram 9 speed cassette and triple chainrings give you 27 speeds. This gear setup provides a good range of gears similar to the CT & AT’s 3×7 hub. The V-brakes are plenty powerful.

The RX rear suspension is an improvement over the AT. BikeE has moved the pivot up to reduce the suspension “pogo” on hard climbing. This is a problem common on rear suspension bikes and is only really noticeable when the shock air pressure is set low for a “plush” ride. It can be virtually eliminated by raising the air pressure in the shock. That is the great thing about an air shock, you can tune to get the best from a particular design.
The RX is a fine bike, it works well and many riders like it. If you are looking for a bike to take to the races, I’d recommend a lighter, lower, un-suspended (without suspension) bike.
