Hey guys, so I just picked up my first 29er HT yesterday and took it out for about 2hrs. Its a gt karakoram 3.0, with the hydraulic disk brakes. Coming from v brakes this is a very exciting feature to me, I never had a coil fork either. It's not the fanciest bike but it seem like it will last a long time. Id like to thank the guys at cycle sports doylestown PA for answering all my questions. I test rode 3 bikes, crashed on one of them causing a bloody mess. The bike was fine and they patched me up quick lol.
