    Rumblefish II hows it climb.

    Going back and forth between this bike and a Tallboy. I liked the Rumblefish it's got a slacker HTA, looks like more of a trail/all mountain bike, and the price is better. I've heard some complaints about how it climbs, and problems with pedal efficiency. Any info would help. Thanks.

    Great review! I took a RF1 out west this past fall....it was the perfect bike for super long days that included lots of climbing, descending, rocks, roots, the works.

    Yeah thanks alot, great review. I think this bike would be a perfect all-in-one bike for the kind of riding I do.

    Haven't heard any complaints about climbing and pedaling. Quite the opposite.

    Mine climbs just fine (RF1). 29" tires make a huge difference in climbing, though--you really notice the weight of the heavier ones.

    happy holidays destroyer. there wasn't anything that i climbed on any 26er that i owned that i couldn't also get up with the rumblefish. for me, it is a much better climbing and handling bike than i thought it would be. and the downhills are a gigglefest.

    I own an RF1 and it actually climbs better than my old 23lb 26" bike.
