Here’s my very own Rocky Mountain Fusion. It’s about a decade old now but it’s still great on local trails and I’ve used it for years as a commuter bike. It’s light, responsive, and comfortable. It has Shimano brakes and I don’t know much about what that means from a technical standpoint, but what it means to me is that I never had to worry about braking, even in bad weather. For me, these are all the important things and so the Rocky Mountain Fusion is everything I need in a bike.
Today’s Fusion is categorized as an “Adventure” bike and comes with 29” wheels. The frame features a low standover height, longer reach, a slacker head tube angle, 100 mm of front travel, internal cable routing, and a 1x drivetrain. Rocky Mountain touts the Fusion as a leader for the best all-around hardtail. They also say that the Fusion bike “is the perfect blend of efficiency, capability, and reliability on the trail.” It’s meant to go from trail to path and back again. If you live around light trails and paths as I do, this definitely is a great bike for everyday use. And, since you can get one for under $1,000.00, it makes it a great choice for an everyday bike.
