quick test ride on 26inch Alprace Sasquatch 2.6 (coop department store bike)

the bike felt quite heavy when riding it, heavier steering than my fuel ex 7 29er, As the tyres are bigger & wider the wheels are heavier.

the steering was quite decent,  there was no strange steering like on the Diamant 24inch, the bike did go where I wanted it to, when I wanted it to.

the Tektro brakes felt easy to press, and control, similar to Shimano’s, but a bit different, with good modulation, and braking power.
The frame did not have too much flex.

I did not have enough time to properly test ride this bike as the owner had to ride away.

Verdict:

I can’t recommend cheap bikes like these, the components are not great, no clutch on the Shimano Rear derailleur, square taper bottom bracket.

I have still not tested a fat bike in my size.
