Salsa Horsethief 29er Description

The Salsa Horsethief 29er trail bike is our pick for an affordable rental mountain bike. It has 120mm of rear-wheel travel with a 140mm fork and a good-looking, durable aluminum frame. The Split Pivot suspension system soaks up the bumps on descents and provides a solid pedaling platform when you’re climbing. The geometry is modern but relaxed and makes the Horsethief comfortable and fun to ride. The Horsethief’s $49.99 rental rate and friendly feel make it a great choice for beginners and casual riders on a budget.
