First Look: Fezzari Timp Peak 27.5 Rallies with Carbon, Custom Build and Value

27.5 All Mountain Trail Pro Reviews
Instead of $10k bike in a fixed configuration, Fezzari competes with $6k, a custom build and best of breed components.

Overview

We’ll just put it out there, Fezzari is not a great bike brand name. It sounds like too much like Ferrari and it gives impression that this is just an offshore company trying to make a quick buck here in the US selling ‘me too’ products.

We are happy to report that this is not the case. We’ve hung out with product manager, Tyler Cloward and his crew many times and we’ve been impressed every time. Here is a humble, hardworking crew from Orem, Utah and they strive to deliver good products and good value to the consumer.

And they know their stuff. They ride road bikes and XC bikes but it seems their hearts are in All Mountain. They get to ride and test in neighboring Park City and Wasatch Crest Trails. Tyler really understands All Mountain bikes as his local trails demand lots of climbing, big descents and tight singletrack.

Configuration and Delivery

This is where Fezzari excels as they have a ton of experience delivering road and mountain bikes direct to consumer. That means they will build it to spec according to your dimensions and riding style.

Full custom bikes are cool but let’s face it, there’s not exactly a good selection of full custom All Mountain bikes out there and most of us fall perfectly in stock frame sizes anyway. What we usually get from a custom builder is knowledge and custom fit components like stem, bar, crank sizes. Oh and we get great anticipation with those delivery times.

So Fezzari aims to deliver that custom build with their form, emails and phone calls. Mtbr went through this setup and although they gave us no special treatment, we found it to be one of the most comprehensive bike setup experiences around. You may think age and gender have nothing to do with your bike fit but in Fezzari’s experience, those are good pieces of information. The bike arrived, just as we expected with our dream setup and we were able to bolt it together in about 30 minutes. Handlebar length was perfect and even seat rail position was dialed. And voila, the tires were delivered sealed up with tubeless perfectly.

    I wish they would change the name. Its like Kia. Perfectly fine car but the name sounds cheap and poopy. There has to be something better. Sweet bike btw!!!

    Hey, Mr hab…….if you ever get into the Wasatch Range and have a chance to ride some of the local trails around here, try the Timpanogos Peaks Trails system, along with the Draper, Corner Canyon and American Fork trails. That name may make more sense then. My Timp Peak is without exception, the best bike I’ve ever had or ridden, and there have been quite a few since I first started mt. biking in ’86.

    Resale is my primary concern with this brand. Buying a niche brand like this would be near impossible to sell when its time to swap to a new bike. They may be a good value, but 4k for a bike (or whatever the cost is) is still quite a bit and I’m sure resale would not be very strong, as compared to better-known brands. That’s certainly a challenge for them to get over.

    Bought a fezzari cr3 road bike for my girlfriend…. The bike for its price can’t be beat…. I was on the fence about fezzari but the fit and quality is second to none I actaully purchased a lone peak for my girlfriends dad and that was a good buy as well… Check them out I wish I did sooner

  • opayq says:

    Is that rim cracked? It looks so..

  • ginsu says:

    I agree with the reviewer, they are really suffering from the name….just sounds like a weak Chinese off-brand…maybe they should go more understated on their logos or something. I can imagine the weirdness in the following exchange:
    “Check out my new Fezzari!”
    “What! You got a Ferrari?”
    “No, it’s a Fezzari. It’s a bike”
    “Oh, okay.”
