Haven't ridden one, but they are said to be good. But be careful about running your seatpost to high, I saw one of the bikes completely ruined cause of someone riding someone elses bike with the seatpost at full height. But this would happen to any bike:)

Ive had one for about 5months. It has good brakes and suspension. The swing arm dog bones can get loose. Mine did and the swing arm cracked. Gt fixed it under warranty but it took 4 weeks. Overall I am still pretty happy with it.

thanks, I have decided not to go with the GT because of all the action there in the bb and what a pain getting replacements are....and that they are in turmoil-the company-and fear it may get even harder to get components.... i will continue with my search. peace, eek

you might want to try a horst link bike. i used to ride an i-drive, which pedaled very well, but recently got a turner 5 spot, which pedals just as well or better, especially over techinical terrain. the turner burner, a more cross country oriented trail bike, is now on sale for 950 which is a great deal.

good luck in your bike search...
