Considering buying a 2008 GT Marathon 2.0. Does anyone own one, ride one, had problems with one. Let me know what you think. Recently moved to Colorado from Ohio and the hardtail isn't cutting it anymore. Thanks. John
I had a 2007 iDrive 4 2.0 (last year's version of the same bike) and loved it. IDrive pedals really nicely and does a great job of eliminating any pedal-induced bobbing while remaining active. The bike is a fantastic value, it retails for $1800 and you're getting full LX (even down to the shifters and Shimano hydraulic brakes are great!), RS Recon 351 (great fork!), and a mature, proven suspension design. Lotta bang for your buck! The only thing that I did notice is that the bike is kind of tall due to the high bottom bracket. I would not hesitate in recommending one. The iDrive is also very simple to service, should you need to.
