    I've owned an 08 Sanction for a little while now. Really liked the bike but recently sold her after getting a deal on a Ellsworth Moment.

    I really liked the snappiness of the Sanction, really pedaled well. It did run a bit heavy, but had no real complaints.

    Why did I move onto a Moment? Mainly because I got a really crazy deal on one and couldn't pass up on it.

    If I had to compare the two bikes, I think that the GT may pedal a bit better, I climb better on the Ellsworth currently, and the Moment built up a little lighter for me, but that is probably do more to parts spec than anything.

    For cash to value though, can't beat the Sanction. Great bike
