    Bad news bears...

    Even with 390 post I cant get full leg extension. Looks like its time to move onto another bike. Descends like a mofo'ing champ, wish I could keep it. But this is my pedal bike. Got a DHR back home waiting on me...

    Gonna give it another week of trail time before I come to a conclusion.

    nice build, youve got the build about dialled. I've been rocking my gruitr for about a year now for everything from bmx style DJ's to rough steep dh to big XC rides with a 1x9, pike 454 and DH wheels and the only thing that would really make it better is a 36 talas so i could leave the front on the ground more for rough stuff but still drop it down. i was running it in short travel but now just run it in long travel for everything. i'm 5'8 with a 32" inseam on a small with a 330mm post up really far and it's fine for long xc type rides.
    unfortunately there arent many(any?) bikes that can mimic the gruitr's riding style but with a xc post height ability for the taller folks. what about a post extension piece? im sure the frame is strong enough. sure it has some shortcomings but in the versatility department the gruitr is second to none.
    PS nice pyramid but it needs finished.

    Over it.

    To cramped for long pedals. Great little ripper though.

    Anyone want a Gruitr? hahaha

    is it still available?

    if so,
    is the shock 2" or 2.25 (4.5-5.5 or 5.5-6.5 travel)?
    what year model is the frame and are you the first owner?
    how'bout international shipping?
    cheers, YooPee.
