    GT Zaskar 20"

    I just got home after picking up a GT Zaskar 20" from the REI outlet. Impressive bike. Price was right with 30% off the original price. Nice build. No suspension fork (in all my shopping I never did find one that would cycle with my sons weight). SRAM X5 derailleur. Quick release wheels. Quick release seat post. Disc posts on frame and fork also. Kenda Small Block 8's to boot.

    Best part, 22lb weight.

    Only quick weight savings might come from swapping the double chain ring/bash guard to a shorter SINZ crank. The cranks are on the long side (152mm) when it comes to ground clearance.

    Nice! 22lbs! I love my son's hidden canyon, but it feels like a brick! I wish it had a rigid fork!

    We looked at the Hidden Canyon, solid build. If REI didn't have these on their outlet I think that would have been the one we went with. We (he) test rode the Cannondale kids 6-spd and that was a tank. We are heading to the trails this week (if it stops raining on the east coast). He (and I) are pretty stoked. His other bike is a Redline Pitboss with only a back brake, so trail rides up to now have been a lof of skidding and up hill walking.
