Date Reviewed: February 24, 2005

Strengths:    mine is an older version im guessing 1990 to 1993 love the bars stem and seat post the rear u-brakes are pretty good but i replaced them with diatech 996 fiesta fraont and rear i purchased a new fork with 990 mounts but i kept the 1 inch threaded headset i got a freecoaster hub and thick ass flatland pegs love to go to park or my neighborhood this was my first flatland bike and i liked it better than other flatland desinghs the downtude has an arch at the bottom near the bottom bracket which is great for standing loved it
also cool seat with handle


Weaknesses:    srocket to big but strong front caliper brakes not bad dia-compe bulldog fork had no 990 mounts but strong fork the rear 990 mounts wear on the lower chain stays which was bad for chain clearence but i figured it out

Bottom Line:   
its a great bike great for flatland you could use it for freestyle if you wanted very strong glad i got one from before gt sold out

Strengths:    Frame, fork and wheels

Weaknesses:    Cranks, pedals, wheels (heavy), sprocket (i bent it just riding the bike and i am 170lbs. Pegs (they suck), The bike is HEAVY 37lbs.

Bottom Line:   
I was mad when GT sold out but i got mine before they merged and went to crap. The bike is heavy but i got it to around 33-34 lbs and is alot stronger but has cost $850 for everything including the bike. Worth it though. I'd like a tour frame but can't locate one not chrome.

Date Reviewed: August 9, 2003

Strengths:    Almost every thing,Tough frame,Mag wheels,gears,very stealthy killer design.

Weaknesses:    TOO damn heavy! I'm 6'3", 160LBS and I can barely bunny hop this thing.Handle bars will not stay tight, they slip an inch or two after a week.

Bottom Line:   
This thing is a freagin tank! Better start weight lifting.
It's great for just riding on the street or dirt but I can't imagine doing tricks on such a heavy bike.
This bike looks cooler than any since the mid 80's GT "Fiola" world tours!

Submitted by James Hewitt a Weekend Warrior from England

Date Reviewed: June 15, 2002

Strengths:    A lot. This bike comes with plenty of good parts, but maybe its not quite worth $364.Also good for dirt and flat.

Weaknesses:    The one piece, but if you do flat it doesn't matter.Could have had a full crmo frame. Crank clicks.

Bottom Line:   
OK bike for the money. Exellent bike for dirt, flat, freestyle. Very strong even though it doesn't have a full crmo frame. Looks good even in chrome.

Strengths:    USA made frame. Airbag Tires, gusseted bars, curved top tube, man! I can Name em all!

Weaknesses:    The painted pedals can slip from under your feet in air and thats not fun for your shins!

Bottom Line:   
This Bike is the best for its price. Its Made in the USA and is only $364.00 (1999 model). Two Words: TOUGH BIKE. I've fell so hard so many times and the wheel doesn't even twist.
