Bike Size Charts

BikeRide finds and shows you the best prices of the bikes you want to buy. Prices constantly change and it’s impossible to compare them all yourself.

We search for prices on over 120 bike retailers to guarantee that we find the lowest prices – to save you time and money.

It’s a promise we stand behind: If you find a lower price on a bike elsewhere, we will sell it to you for 10% less. For example, if you find a bike for $480 that we have listed at $500, we will offer you to buy it for $432 through BikeRide. The bike must be the same color and size, sold in the US and not include the use of a coupon.

If you find a lower price, email us at [email protected] with documentation of the price. We’re committed to making sure that the cost of a bike does not keep you from cycling!

Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Gravity FSX. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

14 reasons to buy

  • For the low price, the moderate weight of this bike was considered respectable.
  • One of the FSX’s biggest drawcards is the low price and great value.
  • The build of the frame was assessed as strong and high quality.
  • A large number of reviewers recommended the FSX as a beginner’s mountain bike.
  • Handling was described as great, off-road.
  • Double-wall rims are provided at a low price-point, keeping things beefy.
  • Owners found the FSX good looking.
  • FSX riders said the bike felt fast.
  • Dual disc brakes are stock.
  • At this price, entry-level dual suspension impressed.
  • Packaging was said to be very good.
  • For mechanically-minded customers, assembly was easy and quick.
  • Customer service was lauded, for prompt responses and swiftly dispatched replacement parts.
  • Cyclists reported that both gears and shifting worked well.

9 reasons not to buy

  • The suspension fork is entry-level and doesn’t feature a lockout. Reportedly, ride-quality is spongy and the pre-load adjustment makes little difference.
  • The FSX is not equipped or intended for serious trails abuse.
  • Supplied tires have moderate tread and aren’t aggressive enough for trails.
  • It’s apparently difficult to fit a bottle-holder in the frame triangle. When the bottle is placed underneath the downtube, it attracts filth.
  • Some saw the instructions as inadequate.
  • Grips were uncomfortable for numerous riders.
  • The rear shock offered limited adjustment. It was labeled ‘cheap’ and ‘spongy’.
  • Some customers felt that pre-assembly and quality-control were neglected.
  • Buyers lamented a lack of warranty support.

Bottom line

The FSX is dirt-cheap, without being a hunk of junk. It isn’t intended to be thrashed on serious trails or launched off sick doubles. That said, one rider reported riding trails and downhill for a year with success. The FSX does need either assembly skills or bike shop assistance, upon delivery. The FSX was rated highly by those owners that held a modicum of mechanical aptitude – or whomever was willing to pay for bike-shop assembly. Parts are not-high end, while still being reliable. This is a great entry-level full-suspension mountain bike.

The bike rides well. If you know what you’re doing, the assembly of the bike is very simple.

Gravity FSX – Cheap Dirt Fun.

A lot of you will say, “For that cheap, a full-suspension bike? It’s gotta be garbage!” Not necessarily. If you know what you’re doing with these things and know what parts to swap out, this is actually a very, very nice off-road trail bike.
