Welcome to Riders Reviews, Your Boise Area Mountain Bike Guide

We are your 1 stop for all things mountain biking in the Boise area.  After many years of racing and riding in the local area, this is how I’m able to give back to the Boise Mountain Bike Community that has given me and my family so much. IN PARTICULAR this is geared especially to help the beginners and folks new to the area to be able to enjoy the sport for many years to come. I have nothing for the riders to buy, this is purely informational and designed to be a great resourse, so bump around and enjoy.

Bike Test: Intense M16 DH Bike


I picked up the Intense M16 from Ryan at Kore North Cycles in Meridian yesterday to do a demo ride day with a test and review. It became very apparent to me that this is as much a review of the awesome customer service and bike set up that I recieved from Ryan as for the bike it’s self.

The thing is, that no matter what bike and components you throw at it, it will ride like crap with out a good proper quality set up. Ryan did an awesome job of this, including setting up the suspension for my weight and riding style. His work and customer service are simply top shelf all the way through. One of the best bike shop experiances a person could ever ask for. See the entire test HERE
