    2009 GT Bikes!!

    I figured I start a thread with a couple of the new 09 bikes. Man, do they look good! I was going to get an 08 sanction 1.0 but I'm glad I waited!

    09 Carbon Force


    Zaskar 9r


    Sanction 1.0



    All the info and pictures are from here http://bikemag.com/news/freshproduce...gno/index.html

    The carbon Force looks pretty nice. None that different to look at than 08 but they are good looking bikes anyway.

    I saw the furry on another post, looks pretty sick. I wonder how they are going to spec the force for 09. They said the sanction 1.0 is getting all saint stuff, hopefully the weight doesn't go up to much.

    I wouldn't mind picking up their new SS/fixie either!

    I thought this would be the year they woould bring back a good old chromoly hardtail for us old timers aka Karakoram, Bravado or Psyclone type. (not a Peace multi either). Everybody else is selling out their hardtail steel bikes.

    liam, let me guess you probably weren't born when this sport started and have probably never taken the opportunity to ride a GOOD steel frame?

    yes your right, i realize that there are benefits of steel and good steelies ride very well (having ridden a few)

    but from a looks point of view i really dont like steel - i find their retro look URGH compared to a nice chunky CF frame

    [SIZE=2]STW seems to have some nicer pics of the bikes and GT seems to be going in the right direction with the internal gear cables IMO.

    Appears as though Peterman and Co. did a great job on these models can't wait to see the rest.

    Agreed. I hope they now put some effort into expanding the dealer network and making amends with the dealers that got burned during the bankruptcy/buyout mess.

    Wow, all these '09 bikes are looking sweet. I wish the LBS (only GT dealer around) would bring in some high end stuff.

    I also would like to see some updated spec steel hardtails from GT. My first mountain bike was a 95 GT Timberline FS. a short time later I got a yellow 96 Karakoram. I liked the Timberline so much I still haven't built the Rak up.(10 years later. That's what working and being tired all the time will do for you. but now I'm kind of glad I didn't build it. Just about everything now is aluminum.I got a brand new 98 Marzocchi Z2 alloy for it. I rekindled my interest in bike building recently.Happy days are ahead. I'll always like GT, and remember when Richard Long, the founder of GT died with sadness. Long live GT.

    Thats just the the thing, I'm not laying out a huge amount of cash for a bike I can't even test ride. Seems like all the higher end bikes are becoming a "special order" item in this area. I'll stick to the tried and true GT hardtails for now, gotta love em.
