Strengths:    it has a very strong frame and forks. I have customised mine. i have bought animal pedals and grips, i have bought a colony sprocket and i have painted it a blueish purple colour. it is a great bike for just riding on any jumps. weather you are an amature or a pro, i recon that this is the bike for you.

Weaknesses:    its bars are to low and they bend to easily.

Bottom Line:   
it is a great bike that is light and eaisy manouverd.

Strengths:    the bike is really light, it is easy to get some pop off of jumps. Also, the frame, even though its light, it held up. Im not the lightest guy but i didnt have any problems with it.

Weaknesses:    the sproket was weak. I switched to a KINK 33 tooth sproket and made it better. The back rim was crap to. Get a double wall rim GT!!!!!!

Bottom Line:   
this bike is super light and is easy to bunnyhop all day. Even though the sproket and the back rim screwed up, it was a good bike for the money. I tried to find a good light bike that would have a 3 piece crank on it and this was the best i could find for the money.

Date Reviewed: May 6, 2006

Strengths:    quite smooth in places,everything apart from crank and seat

Weaknesses:    the 3 piece crank i got with it was crap the pinch bolt didn't actuallt pinch this resulted in the teeth on the crank and the axle until now when it is unride-able. and the seat cover has come unglued!

Bottom Line:   
unless you are going to buy a good crank with this bike then don't get it . otherwise its a good bike for the money.

Strengths:    crazy durability i drove it of a waterfall and it mised the water and landed on the bank and it only bent the handle bars a smidge

Bottom Line:   
for 200 bucks prob 1 of the best bikes out there. its very durable it will last u a long time and wont brake on u. so if u need a bike and u got 200 bucks totally go for it great deal

Strengths:    lovely looking bike
great 3 piece crank
lightweight
strong
good tyres
powerful brakes
rare


Weaknesses:    brake cables could have been designed better as they hangy very wierdly and therefore hav a strong chance of scratching the frame

Bottom Line:   
What can i say about this bike... Excellent!!!! Its the best bike i have owned and for the price, well u can't complain. The bike is a beautiful piece of equipment and is one of the most nicest looking bmx's i have ever seen. The stock parts also live through a hard life ( i must know i often do dirt riding every weekend and go to skate parks. You are almost gauranteed to get looks when on this bike as no one has seen a bike like it!!

Strengths:    LIGHT!! I'm telling you i went from a haro to this gt and it was so light and easier to contro. I'm only 14 and if its light to me than it's a feather for older people!

Weaknesses:    OK well... everyone says that the one piece crank is a big weakness but i had a fusion 3 pc. on my ohter bike and i feel no difference when i ride the one piece.

Bottom Line:   
I LOVE THIS BIKE. Nice treds for whatever your style is and i have the lightest bike of my frineds which means its lighter than both free agents and haros. At under 30 pounds and built like a brick $h!t house this is a great bike for anyone from beginners to the pros! All this for under 200 bucks...YOU CANT BEAT THAT!!

Strengths:    frame, stem, pedals, seatpost, and suprisingly the rims

Weaknesses:    cranks, seat, forks, and bars

Bottom Line:   
well i kind of put this bike through hell. i broke my first bones on this bike(collar bone, and ankle) this is suprisingly an all around good bike. i mostly ride street and dirt. my GT came with 3-piece cranks. the cranks are pain to get off. the stock sprocket bends, but the bottom line is: this bike is worth the money!!

Deer fly/Greenhead season in Southern NH?

I'm sorry if this question has been asked before or if I'm posting in the wrong place. Can anyone tell me if there's generally a deer fly/green head season in Southern NH?

what size Fly team 29er do you use

I am looking to get a Ti Fly team 29er. I am 6'0" and have a 33" inseam with long arms. My prior mt bikes were size large (frame size 20") but that has been with only 26" wheels.
