Strengths:    Incredibly durable with great suspension, front and back. Recently went on a 9 mile difficult mountain trail and thought the bike held up great.

Weaknesses:    A trifle on the heavy side

Bottom Line:   
I find the whole gear change system to be great, especially when cycling uphill.

Strengths:    Strong reputation of I-drive system, affordable compared to other full suspension bikes. Adjustable suspension in front and lockout, Fox air shock at the back is always a treat. Crank brothers make good pedals too!

Weaknesses:    Looks like dirt can get into the pivot holes, but time will tell. Heavier than the other bikes I've been riding, but this is less than half the price! Will update as I ride it.

Bottom Line:   
Very good value for the money. This is a very good bike for someone getting into the full suspension scene.

Strengths:    The bike is comes equipped with great componentry, has awesome components for the money

Weaknesses:    the I-Drive line has a very messed up geometry. I am 6 foot, and the size small has the right stand over, but is obviously too small. The large is the right size, but is very uncomfortable, stand over-wise

Bottom Line:   
If you have very long legs, this is a great bike at a great price, however, if you vaguely resemble a human being, the bike will probably be uncomfortable

Date Reviewed: June 28, 2006

Strengths:    The i-drive system is awsome at climbing, no problems with hills packed or over loose rock, awsome awsome!! Locking grips from the factory! Fast, responsive turning. Great components for under $1,500. This bike is good for all types of riders beginner to expert racer. GT is on its way back with this line of bikes.

Weaknesses:    A little on the heavy side, and I found that climbing while seated allows the i-drive system to perform better. If you stand up and pump you get a little slippage on the rear.

Bottom Line:   
For the money you can't find a new bike with all the features that this bike has. If your looking for a bike to work hard for you this bike will do it. Up hill down hill, this bike does the job. Give GT a try.
