Strengths:    1. frame geometry makes for responsive ride, good climber, and smooth on descents. my lanky arms on a 6'0" body make for a cramped fit usually, but the 19.5" frame is perfect for me.
2. solid componentry (incl deore/XT and shimano hydraulic disk brakes)
3. Marzocchi Corsa fork is great for its price - 100mm travel, lockout, air preload, and rebound adjustable!
4. canadian company (for those of us above the 49th parallel it counts for something)
5. great lookin' bike!!


Weaknesses:    None yet - only ridden x 1 week.

Bottom Line:   
Unleash the Fury: 10 minutes into my first ride on this beauty I was smiling wide as we flew through some winding singletrack and chewed up a few switchback climbs...

This is a confidence-building bike that makes me feel like a better mtber than I am!! Flying over log piles and down steep/windy descents with complete control thanks to the Marzocchi Corsa fork (with lockout) and hydraulic disc brakes.

Who's this bike for? Avid mtb-ers on budget who don't want to skimp on component quality and enjoy the Brodie frame, and weekend warriors who want a sweet ride for their XC trails.

Who's it NOT for? XC racers who need top-tier parts and sub-20lb bikes or the beginner who won't get their money's worth out of these high quality and durable parts.

This bike has allowed me to once again get the rush of pushing my personal limits on the trail - thank you Brodie!

2013 GT Fury 3.0 weight?

So my friend got a new 2013 Gt fury 3.0 for his birth day. He says it's weight is not that heavy. I was looking at the Airborne Toxin today and it's 39.5 pounds. For my first downhill bike I thought it looks pretty good. Especially for $1700. But I'm not sure if 39.5 pounds is to much weight. My que ... Read More »

MC Fury

I am thinking about selling my MC Fury. As my wife and I are splitting up. Since we are splitting up, I might need the money. I really hate thinking about selling it. As it's the best bicycle I ever had. How would someone go about seeing how much the bike is worth? The bike has only been used ... Read More »

'13 GT Fury 3.0 Crash report

hey guys. Took my first and, so far, my only high speed crash on my bike. The bike hit so hard the bump stop on the fork actually dented the hell out of my bike (though these have dented the bike since the day I got it and GT wont acknowledge it.) and bent the fork. Is GT telling me this ... Read More »
