Submitted by Jack Wilson a Weekend Warrior from London

Date Reviewed: October 9, 2005

Strengths:    Its has a really strong frame you can thrash the bike and nothing will happen. The bike is good for racing and riding through the forest.

Weaknesses:    Very heavy frame, I can barely lift the front up let alone the back so it is no good for stunts which is why I will be selling it. The brakes are not very good you press them but do not stop quickly. I would not recommend this bike to anybody who likes to try out stunts, but may be a fair bike for someone who wants to race. I am twelve years old and am very disappointed.

Bottom Line:   
Its not very good for what I want to do on it.

Submitted by Alex Phelan a Racer from England

Date Reviewed: July 28, 2004

Strengths:    The frame is super strong, never get's damaged or dinted.

Weaknesses:    It's way to heavy for youngsters i'm only 14 and i can only just lift the front end to do a wheelie or manual.
And you can't even do a endo because the brakes are that rubbish.


Bottom Line:   
I think over all the GT Performer is a good bike for BMX racing, you might think that it wood be to heavy for BMX racing but it's not. If the bike is heavy that means i will get more traction and that means more speed which is one of the key things you need in BMX racing.
