The Jeffsy 27 was released just a bit too late to feature in the 100s this year. No worries though, the Jeffsy 29 still remains one of our favourite trail bikes. It may have slightly less travel but by no means are you bringing a knife to a gun fight, this bike is a true puncher.
In fact, pitching it at 140 with the larger wheels is pretty perfect for a trail bike in our opinion – not too much, not too little, lightweight, inexpensive, fully loaded and… flat out.
This is a bike that will look on your riding with disdain. “Is that all you’ve got?” Don’t be fooled by the big wheels and small travel, we’re still struggling to find its limits. This is a bike that picks up speed like a border collie but charges like a rhino. It takes some stopping even on the burliest trails. It’s delicate to the touch as well though, highly strung and always alert to rider input.
