Well I pulled the trigger on a zaskar comp 9r a couple weeks ago and finally managed to get it all dialed in this weekend. Prior to scoring the GT on an unbelievable sale I was planning on buying a Airborne Guardian. For an additional $75 I was able to pick up the GT which was a huge upgrade and over 4lbs lighter. As she sits it weighs in at 26.5 lbs. I've cut the bars down to 26", swamped out the seat post with a carbon offset, shortened all rthe cables and break lines, swaped the saddle and will convert the wheel set to tubless this spring. All in all very pleased with the components and can't believe a bike of this quality could be purchased at such a great price. Makes me wonder why I ride a $3500 hard tail. Can't really comment on the handling as its only seen a few miles on a paved road until the local trails dry out.
