The Bilsland Verdict: Quite possibly the best mountain bike in the 'bang for buck' category, The 120mm travel handles blue and some red trails comfortably, while still leaving the door open to having some fun on the steep stuff. The perfect entry bike or first upgrade for the passionate mountain biker

The Trail Hardtail BenchmarkWith a perfect 10/10 score from MBR, our top-of-the range 629 is probably the best trail hardtail you can buy. It’s progressive geometry and specially selected components have been crafted to allow any rider – both relative beginners and experienced riders alike – to be able to maximise their fun by confidently taking on technical trails as well as covering ground quickly and comfortably on bigger rides thanks to its low weight and smooth-rolling 29er wheels. Highlights– Light yet tough 6061 T6 hydroformed, multi-butted Singe Chain Ring (1X) specific frame– 120mm RockShox 35 Gold RL suspension fork– Capable & smooth-rolling 29er wheels + grippy Maxxis tyres– SRAM NX Eagle 1x12 transmission (32T chainring x 11-50 cassette)– SRAM Guide T four-piston hydraulic disc brakes (180mm rotors front + rear)– Whyte Drop.It dropper post (with frame size-specific drop)

Why 629?The 629 is a fast, light weight and capable 29er with award-winning handling that’s perfect for making the most of every bit of fun you can find on your favourite singletrack and trail centre trails, as well as for going fast and far on big rides out in the hills. Our big wheel hardtail handling has been the benchmark since we first did what everyone else said was impossible with our holistic ‘Total Geometry’ design philosophy: by blending progressive 29er geometry together with specially curated components and tyre choice to deliver you the very best handling and ride experience. We’ve engineered the 629’s multi-butted alloy frame to ride better than carbon despite costing less, as well as putting just as much detailing into it as we do our full suspension bikes to ensure that living with it for the long-haul is as hassle-free as possible. That includes weather sealing the internally routed control cable ports and seat post collar to keep the water and muck where it belongs – outside; maximizing mud clearances – as well as allowing space for up to 2.6in tyres in the rear – thanks to our big-tyre friendly Single Chain Ring frame design; as well as a custom chainstay guard to both protect the frame from chain slap damage and silent your ride. Features & EquipmentOur flagship trail hardtail is equipped with a specially selected set of parts that will inspire you to new levels of riding: front suspension is provided by RockShox’s highly capable 35 Gold RL DebonAir 120mm travel forks; slick shifting with a gear for every gradient comes from SRAM’s NX Eagle 1x12 groupset; Maxxis High Roller II TR 29x2.3in front and Forekaster 29x2.35in rear tyres fly over the trails. Powerful, feedback-rich braking comes from SRAM’s Guide T four-piston hydraulic disc brakes to give you powerful braking performance to stay in full control; remote-controlled Whyte Drop.It dropper seat posts (150mm drop on size M; 170mm drop on L-XL) give you the clearance to push your riding further, and in more control, on descents and technical terrain, too. Bigger diameter 29in (aka ‘29er’) wheels boost performance in several ways. Their larger size effectively shrinks every bump, so they can roll over rough terrain faster and smoother so you can go further, with less fatigue and more control. They also have more gyroscopic stability so you can hold your line better when things get loose, adding more control and confidence. While that can make some 29ers dull, our unique Total Geometry approach means our 29er bikes are still agile and fun as well.

We like to make things simple here at Billy Bilsland Cycles, so our shipping services are crystal clear.

If you require expedited/next day shipping, give us a call on 0141 552 0841 or drop us an email on sales@billybilslandcycles.co.uk and we'll do our best to accommodate.

Every bike we sell is fully assembled and tested for safety by our trained mechanics. We then partly disassemble the bike and carefully re-pack to prepare for shipping.

Depending on the model, upon receipt you may be required to straighten and tighten the handlebars, reattach front wheel and attach the pedals. Please ensure that the pedals are greased and fitted correctly - the pedals will be marked L and R and have to be fitted to the left and right cranks respectively. Pedal do not come with every bike and need to be bough separately, especially on more high-end models. Please check when you are ordering.

There is a guide in the box telling you which tools you will need and the steps to follow. This will require some degree of mechanical skill to put together and can need some minor adjustments. The less confident you are in this field the more we'd recommend having it checked over by a professional mechanic.
