The 2017 GT Palomar AL is an entry-level recreational mountain bike. An inexpensive and friendly introduction to off-roading, the Palomar is nicely equipped with wide gearing, big platform pedals, a cushy suspension fork, and sure-stopping V-brakes. Casual riders will appreciate the plush padded saddle, relaxed upright seating, and chainguard. Tires are broad, with a mixed-use tread providing sure-footed traction on anything from park paths and grass to pavement or dirt trails.
A good recreational mountain bike.
