Jeep Mountain Bikes
I am somewhat new to mountain biking. I have been looking around and like the Jeep brand mountain bikes. And have not heard bad reports about them. I found a site that seems to have them at great prices compared to other sites that have them at retail. Any comments? The site that is selling them is listed below.

    They look great, but they are not true mountain bikes. They do have a couple expensive ones that are good, but the low price models aren't.Check around and you can get a very good mountain bike for around 600-700.

      What do u mean they r not true mtn bikes? Virtually any brand of mtn bikes will have different series/lines for different tasks.
      Go to JeepBikes.com and look at their Grand Cherokee Series. Just looking at their components will make u drool! Blows away your Raleigh! LOL

    Hi Buzzard,
    U haven't heard any bad reports about them cause there aren't any! Most Jeep Mtn Bikers r very satisfied with their bikes. Quality, Craftsmanship and Great Components make 4 a winning combo!
    Look at the Grand Cherokee Series at JeepBike.com

    I have two Jeep Mountain Bikes that I bought last year, and I have had no problems with them. I would recomend them to anyone.

      They don't make a full suspension bike that weighs less than 35 lbs., and that's presumably for the small size. What a heap (much like their autos).

        In Reply to "They don't make a full suspension bike that weighs less than 35 lbs., and that's presumably for the small size. What a heap (much like their autos)." that is not true. I have a GT XCR-4000. It is on the bottom end of the XCR series, and it only wieghs 29 pounds.

          Hey idiot, not full suspension bikes in general. There are 23-25 pound f/s bikes all over the place. He was talking about Jeep bikes. A 35 pound POS.

    Here is what one of my customers wrote. Well I got my Cherokee TSI today! Took one week to the day. I got to ride it about four blocks. I love it!!! I've been ridding a H____ Mountain Bike to work every day and this is like going from a Chevette to a ZR1 Vette. Love it!!! Jeff

    Later, he wrote. Well I got to give my Cherokee TSI mountain bike a better workout today. I love it even more. Nice bike!! Took me a little while to figure out the shifters, but other than that no problem. I've never had a bike people stopped to look at. The guys at work love it. Had to let some of them give it a try. Everybody said it was one of the finest bikes they had ever rode. I told them about your web page, but this isn't a good time to sell bikes to people in Southern Indiana since the temp is getting down to the high 30's or lower 40's at night. Thanks a lot and have a great day....Jeff

    I'm sorry I didn't read messages on this site sooner. I'm in the hunt for a Jeep Bike. I like what I hear since I'm a pretty beafy guy. I want something to take the punishment. Price was my main object though. By accident I ran accross (gregssuperstore.com) AKA "Greg's Gear" if you read the page. He seems to have the most reasonable pricing. It looks like he's just getting started. Page is pretty simple."But" he's got a "Bike Crawler" link I spent some time at.

      if you are going to get a full suspension bike with disc brakes new for $389 you probably won't end up with much of a bike. to get that kind of stuff on a bike you are going to have to spend at least $800 or more to get a decent bike. don't get me wrong...i am not being critical...but with bikes , to a large degree , you get what you pay for.

    no man. stick with companies that have been making bikes for a long time. R&D is the key...
    anyway i'd be reluctant to buy a bike that was originally made as a freebie that you get when you purchase a cherokee.

    Would you buy a car made by MONGOOSE?

    I'm looking for a bike and came across the Jeep. I just wanted to note that the negative reviews here seem to be from people who have not ridden, seen or even taken the time to look at the specifications. I printed out the specs on these "lower" end bikes and showed the parts list to some friends that ride alot. They were very impressed with the brands listed and parts match. When I showed them the prices they were amazed. I am still looking for feedback from riders of these bikes and would love to find a brick and morter in KY that had them.

      All I know is that the lower end Jeep bikes weigh 50+ lbs.....not cool for any manufacturer. Especially for a XC bike.

    I just wanted to add my opinion about the Jeep Grand Cherokee freeride and downhill bikes. I am an amateur downhill racer, and I have raced more NORBA downhill events than I can count (Devils Gulch, Mammoth, and Cap D'Alil just to name a few). I have owned and raced an Intense M-1, a KHS Dominatrax, and a Norco VP1. I came upon the Jeep Downhill bike one day just surfing the net. I wanted to get a freeride/DH bike that I can just thrash around. Compared to my Intense M-1, the Jeep bike is a little twitchy over 40MPH downhill, but nothing that can't be fixed by dialing in the forks and rear. The set-up on the Jeep bikes are great, and I have real fun riding my Jeep. I have not encountered any failures or issues with my Jeep Grand Cherokee downhill bike, and I know for a fact that I ride harder, catch the most sky, and take bigger drops than anyone posting to this board. For those of you who are trashing the Jeep bikes, all I have to say to you is throw away your crappy gram-conter bikes, and barrel down a NORBA class 2 hill on a Jeep Rubicon Sport or the Grand Cherokee Downhill. I guarantee that YOU WILL FAIL before the Jeep downhill bike does! Hey Buzz, get a Jeep, you will not be sorry!

    Any one interested I have had a Jeep Wrangler TSI for 3 years now and have put this bike thru hell and it keeps delivering. Its the cheap end of the spectrum $289 is what i paid and ive seen high end bikes fall apart. Say what you will about these bikes but it doesnt always pay to get the most expensive bike out there just to say you paid $800 or $3000 dollars for a bike. Im purchasing a another one this year and giving my daughter the wrangler. This bike has seen some of the toughest terrain in southern oregon and keeps giving!!!!!!! Jeep I'll be back!

      The DH bike doesn't look too bad. Good mix of XT, XTR, Hayes, etc. But the other bikes, however, don't. The AWD bike is a copy of the Christini AWD bike. And what's with the Monroe forks on all of the bikes? Next thing will be a Fabtech rear swingarm or a set of 26" Dubs.
