I’m not sure if I have ever been excited about a $300 bicycle. However, that all changed when I built up this 2017 Sun Bicycles RevMX.
The RevMX pays hommage to Klunkers (the style of bikes that began mountain biking).
It has many of the keystones that define a Klunker: steel frame, coaster brake, and large, aggressive tires.
Although this is a throwback bike, Sun Bicycles does a nice job mixing in a few modern amenities such as a treadless headset and 27.5×2.4 tires.
The RevMX is currently offered in one size: 18″. The frame fits a wide range of riders but would best be suited for a rider between 5’7″-6’1″.
I thoroughly enjoyed riding the RevMX. The high-rise handlebars are comfortable yet aggressive.
Stocked with a 42 tooth chainring and a 22 tooth cog, the gearing is really nice for rolling around on level roads and slight inclines.
The RevMX weighs in at 34 pounds and retails at $300.
I must say that Sun Bicycles caught me off guard with this bike. My shop has always dealt with their beach cruisers and adult tricycles. However, until the RevMX I never considered owning one of their products. I would highly recommend heading down to your local bike shop and test riding the brand new RevMX.
Here’s a bonus video of me assembling this bike:
