Strengths:    Very Solid Frame, don't worry about cracking this one! If you do then you're either too fat to be riding, or jumping off of 10 story buildings!Oversized(31.6mm)seatpost,built in clamp, reinforced toptube on both ends,made for 14 mm. axles, 7mm thick dropouts, slick looking, and good color(flesh)...more like a light tan.

Weaknesses:    everything on the rear end is cramped....990's, chainwheel, and crank have little room to breathe...a little on the heavy side, could do with a lighter fork/seatpost

Bottom Line:   
Since GT is now MIA then good luck finding this one, they are still on Ebay, if you can catch them.....You are gonna want to change the seatpost, and forks that it usually comes with, and since it has 14mm axles, plan to spend some bucks on wheels. This Bike is intended for the wild and crazy, and the stylish air hogs1 All around awesome buy that will not let you down....You'll break before it does, and thats a fact. If you want to slim it down go with aluminum all around it, but try to stay with 7075, its harder than the 6061, and remember you get what you pay for in components so be nice and spend some money, because you don't want to buy parts that you will need to replace, this bike is meant for the hardest riders out there...and those who want to be...don't buy it unless you intend to use it!!
