GT Ruckus 7 2.0 Freeride Full Suspension

5/5 (2 Reviews)
MSRP : $3749.00

Product Description

Imagine you had a world-class downhill bike like the Fury. Now imagine that you kept the geometry pretty much intact, but put the rider in a slightly more pedal-friendly riding position. Imagine it's got bombproof, bike-park ready features, like an 83mm bottom bracket shell, a reinforced head tube, and a 150mm rear end, but you can ride it to the top, and not the lift. To most, this sounds pretty compelling... to us, it sounds like the Ruckus.

Strengths:    Super fun bike, lots of travel, big 2.5"tires feel like pillows, sick paint,

Weaknesses:    Little heavy

Bottom Line:   
I bought this whip used and it is sick. I ride xc with some freeride. It tracks great off large hits. I upgraded the stem and carbon bars to help with the xc parts of my ride. Great fun and can't wait to ride it in the am.

Strengths:    Very strong frame.
Awesome Drivetrain
Ascends and descends with ease
Really smooth plush travel
Absolutely love the feel and the geometry of this bike
Awesome form factor
Great Adjustability
Have great control over the whole bike

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I just recently purchased this bike and all i can say is good things about this bike. It is tougher than nails and has a really cool frame form factor. I also love the drivetrain, Yes it's different but i love the simplicity of being able to ride the bike up the hill and ditch the lift with still having 7" of monstrous suspension travel front and rear.. Perfect for ascending and descending. Overall this is the best bike i have ever owned or have ridden and recommend it to all experienced riders or novice.
