Over the years the Response has been a franchise model. Its popularity was built on the bikes unwavering reliability to withstand punishment, while maintaining its fair market price for the masses. Its appeal carried weight with riders of all levels of experience; from beginner to advanced, the Response had something for everyone. We are now proud to reintroduce the fan favorite as a 29’er for 2014.

At the heart of each Response 29 is the Butted 6061-T6 aluminum frame with formed top and down tubes, machined headtube, forged dropouts, disc mounts, and a replaceable derailleur hanger providing strength and style with clean lines. The components provide more proof of our commitment to providing you with the most appropriate package and value for your money.

A Suntour XCT fork with 28.6mm stanchions and 100mm travel fork gives you command of the trail without all of the extra costly bells and whistles—but it’s still capable of climbing or descending your favorite trail with ease.

The Promax DSK-310 Mechanical Disc brakes are trail-tuned and will provide plenty of stopping power while the grippy WTB Wolverine Comp large casing tires give you control on every surface.
The MTB Alloy Arm crankset (24/34/44t) is a good match for the Shimano TX50 front derailleur, the Shimano Altus 7spd rear derailleur and Shimano HG20 7spd Cassette (12-28t). This combo provides more than enough gearing options to get you where you want to go.

Diamondbacks Steel Riser Bar with DB 4Bolt stem give just enough rise to for the perfect riding position. A DB SL309p Alloy Micro Adjust 30.9mm post and DB low profile All Mountain saddle ensure that you can pedal all day long.

If a solid and reliable all-purpose 29er mountain bike is what you’re after; a Response 29 is the one for you.

The 2014 Response 29 is black and comes in five sizes to suite your needs: XS (14"), SM (16"), MD (18"), LG (20"), XL (22").
