GENERAL INFORMATION BMC puts out their Sportelite APS Deore Bike as a gateway drug. Theyve built this entry-level full-suspension has the same rear-end design as their Fourstroke, Speedfox, and Trailfox platforms. Its their Advanced Pivot System (APS) with 100mm of travel.
And its combined with a 100mm suspension upfront and 650b wheels. The wheels are smaller than youll find on most of the BMC line for a reason. They fear 29er wheels might be a bit intimidating for new mountain bikers.
Its easier to feel in control and on top of the bike with the smaller wheels and thats what they want you to sense. The frame is welded and formed aluminum, both for the front and rear triangles. Light, durable, and inexpensive to fabricate.
The fork is the RockShox Recon, a 32mm-stanchioned bump controller with both lockout and external rebound controls. It accepts traditional quick-release front wheels.
For that matter, so does the rear end. Most of the component spec comes from Shimano. A XT rear derailleur is the high-zoot offering, while the less-expensive Deore is pretty much everywhere else. That includes the 38/24 double-ring crank, the front derailleur, the shifters, and the 11-36 ten-speed cassette. Deore hydraulic brakes stop 160mm rotors.
The wheels are built by BMC, with Deore hubs and Alex 32-hole rims. The Alex MD19 is both eyeleted and double-walled for maximum pounding resistance. Theyre built for abuse, for the kind of people who dont necessarily know how to ride over rocks and roots and rubble. The rims are covered in Continental Tires, with the Race King up front, X-King Performance in the rear, both 2.2 wide.
When youre looking for your first full-suspension mountain bike, take advantage of the fact BMC wants you to get hooked. This Sportelite APS Deore Bike has the manners of a carbon-fiber full-suspension XC race rig for a song.
