Strengths:    This cro mo frame is mega awesome and very strong, but can frankly dint easily if not cared for.

Weaknesses:    could come with a better colour :/

Bottom Line:   
i have spent a lot of money on this bike but its worth it! the geometry of the bike is one of the best designs for a true hardtail bike.. although THE BIKE itself could come in a better colour :/

Submitted by floppygoat a Weekend Warrior from FL

Date Reviewed: December 3, 2008

Strengths:    pretty much everything about this bike is amazing. off the floor, gt equipped the ruckus uf with some sweet components. the hubs, handle bar, crank, sprockets, cassette, and crank arms are surprisingly good. other components come with the bike as well, such as forks, brakes, saddle, and stem, but may vary from dealer to dealer. for my build, the brakes, saddle, and stem are great. the cromo frame itself is top of the line as well. it is rock solid, fairly lite, and has the sweetest geometry. i have ridden several other dirt jump/urban freeride bikes, and nothing has matched this one so far.

Weaknesses:    The Suntour forks and ryno lite rims are pretty poor. i immediately upgraded to some arrow racing rims frx and manitou gold label jump series forks. other then that, you will need to purchase tensioners.

Bottom Line:   
for the buck, no bike can compare, and i mean no bike. this bike is tuff, well built, and feels great. you will not be disappointed in this bike. ya, and idiot down low, get off and go do something with your life. your a complete moron and a waste of everyone's time. no one wants to listen to you gabber about nothing. if you are that desperate for attention go the strip club. although, they may not want to listen to you either; even if you pay them. i know we don't.

Date Reviewed: November 3, 2008

Strengths:    cromoly is awesme!!! this bikes rides awsome, there is no way i would ever make a switch back to alloy. short wheel base makes this bike a handle like a ninja on the trails. the wheel sets is beefy and strong so it can handle any abuse

Weaknesses:    a little heavy

Bottom Line:   
awsme as bike, good for dj, urban assault, at the skate park and if ur a meathead like me its good for a little bit of downhill and even trailriding if your fit enough and strong enough to ride it up hill. i have spent a bit of money on my bike so it handles way better then standard. defintly a bike worth spending money on.

Dawid Cymerman?? Who do you think you are? Yes be proud of being an American! How irrelevant, go blow up some buildings so you can start a war on the 'dummy generation'. Get a life man! If you don't have anything to say about the best bike ever build, just shut it ok!?

And most important, don't downrate this bike because of people spelling wrong! How stupid is that?

Bottom Line:   
I'm tired of all these reviewers who can't spell, don't know how to punctuate, and generally, make me cringe when I read their poorly constructed sentences. Put down the X-Box and pick up a book, or re-watch Sesame Street. Something. I would expect that from someone who's not fluent in the English language, not Americans. You all should be ashamed of yourselves! What a dummy generation. The one flaming chili is for all of you suckers! You know who you are.

GT Ruckus UF, worth the money?
