Mountain Bike Reviews was lucky to get hold of the GMC Topkick Dual-Suspension Mountain Bike for its in-depth review.

Boasting a full-suspension, extra-strong aluminum frame, the GMC Topkick mountain bike is an ideal choice for both trail riding and rough city riding.

The frame employs a floating beam suspension design mated to a Zoom suspension fork with elastomer/spring technology. This gives the bike a smooth, steady performance even on rough terrain.

The Topkick’s drivetrain, meanwhile, is outfitted with Microshift push shifters that control Shimano’s tried-and-true TZ-30GS derailleur.

The drivetrain also offers a strong aluminum wheel set with a V-shape rim profile and high-flange alloy hubs. Mountain Bike Reviews loved the fact that to keep you stopping smoothly in any circumstance, the Topkick boasts front and rear Promax disc brakes.

Disc brakes are vastly superior to rim brakes, especially under adverse road conditions. Mountain Bike Reviews found that the GMC Topkick Dual-Suspension Mountain Bike was true to its GMC roots, the Topkick mountain bike is rugged, good looking, and built for the long haul.

I performed the brake adjustment procedure. The wheel rotated freely, except for one spot. I marked the spot using a piece of tape on the wheel. Then I bent the brake disk very slightly in the appropriate direction. I had to repeat this twice but finally, the front wheel disk no longer rubs against the pad.Check more Mountain Bikes on this link

Here Are Some Of the Great Specifications Of This Bike:

Crankset: Alloy ISA 335P, 28/38/48, L170mm

Shocks: Kind Shock, adjustable to 650 pound

Chain: KMC Z51

Fork: Zoom CH-386 suspension fork, 65mm travel

Rear derailleur: Shimano RD-TZ30GS SIS, 7 speed

Frame: 26-inch full-suspension aluminum MTB frame

Brakes: LCHI DSK-320 disc brakes, 160mm

Fork: Zoom CH-386 suspension fork, 65mm travel

Tires: 26 inch MTB Tread

Handlebar: HL-MTB 153, W: 600mm, R: 30mm

Ride is firm and the tires offer great grip even when side-riding. Assembly was easy enough if you are somewhat mechanically inclined, and all of the important stuff comes already assembled. The rear brakes and derailleur did need some minor cable adjustments, but other than that it was ready to ride. I commute to work daily with this and plan on trail riding as well. If you are on a budget and want great value, this is the ticket. Great looks, dual rotor brakes and smooth gear changes are what you’re paying for; you can’t find a better deal with all of these features.

Thank you for your valuable time and effort in reading this review from Mountain Bike Reviews it is much appreciated.

Here is what one owner thought of this bike:

Ordered this on 4/20/11 and received it on 4/21/11. Thank you Amazon Prime…..

It took me about 20 minutes to put it together. Everything was pretty simple to put it together. I haven’t had a chance to ride it much due to all the rain, but I rode it down the street and upon first impression, I love it. I really like the disc brakes. For the money you can’t beat this bicycle. I plan on riding it a few miles this coming weekend. (jbdinos)
