Submitted by Andrew McGill a Cross Country Rider from Barrie, Ontatio, Canada

Date Reviewed: April 10, 2008

Strengths:    Wicked geometry, right zippy off the line, you can feel how well its made

Weaknesses:    the stock brakes aren't too good, hard to find a dealer

Bottom Line:   
This bike handles awesome. It accelerates just as quick as my specialized did, the steering is more forgiving. Possibly the most comfortable bike I have ever owned. Its nimble on the single track, but not too twitchy. For racing or serious riding you're going to upgrade just about everything(for the price point though, you're getting a nicely equipped ride), but even as it stands, an okay rider do well in a race, a very good rider could place or win.
A note about buying a bike in Barrie, GO TO MONOVANS!!! the only shop around (outside the Hardwood Hills pro shop) that has staff that know what they are talking about!

Shifting is normally done while pedaling, by "swiping" the shift buttons with the sides of your shoes. Your feet don't change positio ... Read More »

MTB Derailleur & Cassette with Force Shifters?

I recently moved my race MTB from 2x10 to XX1. I have a Specialized Crux Expert Carbon Disc. I'd like to move the X-9 Rear Derailleur and XG-1080 Cassette over to the cross bike... it has Force Double Tap shifters. I think it's possible; anyone know of any reason I might run into trouble? Thanks!Read More »

GT Force Sizing

Has anyone ridden the 2013 Force 1.0? I'm between a medium and a large. Almost all the bikes I ride are mediums, but when I look at the sizing chart, it looks like I can ride a large. I'm 5'10 with a 31-32" inseam and have relatively long arms. I'm about 170lbs. Any thoughts? I understand th ... Read More »
