Specialized Rhyme Women’s Bike Review

Specialized Rhyme

The Specialized Rhyme Review:

The Specialized Rhyme is a straight up trail bike with plenty of traction due to it’s 3.0″ tires.  Designed with 150mm (6 inches) of rear travel the Carbon Fattie happily absorbs plenty of lumps, bumps, ledges and drops.  Looking for bigger stuff to hit while riding this demo, kept us searching for harder and harder terrain in Sedona, so we hit “Made in the Shade.”  The saddle, grips and ladies tuned suspension stood out during our short test ride.

Specialized was the biggest bike brand we tested at the Roam Bike Fest and have been making women’s specific bikes for the past 14 years or so.  Their brand is unique in that not only does Specialized make women’s specific bikes, but also clothing, shoes, helmets and all gear needed to shred as hard as you want.  They are huge!

The Rhyme is Specialized 150mm (6 inch) trail bike equipped with 3.0″ (plus) 27.5″ wheels.

The SWAT box allows you to hide things inside the frame, getting weight off your back and lower on the bike for improved handling.

The chain guide and one by set-up help prevent dropped chains. 

The Specialized Rhyme Carbon Fattie is a fun bike for aggressive trail riding.  With a $3500 price tag and carbon frame, it has the ability to become your new favorite traction machine.  Just watch out for that dropper! This bike set-up with 29″ tires would make for a great test as well.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
