Weaknesses:    Bars, Hubs

Bottom Line:   
Ive had the bike for just over a year now its a 2009 model. I bent the bars on a 8 foot bowl and replaced em with some sunday triumph october orange ones. By far my favourite bike out of my 2009 Specialised p1 and 2010 Giant glory 1. I had a problem with the hub(rear) back at christmas time when it ran out of grease but i got some heavy duty tractor grease in em and haven't had any problems since. i would recommend it to anyone looking to dirt jump or ride park. Only bike i have had to mod because of some of the issues ive had bent it up. im 170cm and i find it a bit small but it just feels like a outstanding bike i give it 5 flamin chillis all the way!

Strengths:    Hey, it's a GT

Weaknesses:    None. Well...., the paint scratches easily enough. Otherwise, nothing else.

Bottom Line:   
No, mine is not a new GT Performer, it's a 1986 back-in-da-day model. I just thought I'd add to your lil review board to let the world know that my GT is da bomb and I *still* love it. BTW, it has been repainted four times since I bought it new in 1986. Current color: Purple.

Strengths:    Light and easy to maneuver. Great tires, comfortable seat.

Weaknesses:    None that I can see.

Bottom Line:   
It's a strong lightweight. Middleweight riders will have the best time (No matter your size, it's still good) on this wonderful machine by GT. It's good for street, parks, dirt, and beyond.

And on top of that, it's affordable. :)
