    2011 GT Avalanche 2

    I got a brand new 2011 GT Avalanche 2.0 with hydraulic brakes for four Benjamin plus $120 in Performance Bike points for future purchase. I was so excited that I got this bike (never own a mountain bike before) for a net of $279. I know it is very good deal but I do not know the bike well. It was a quick decision since there is only one left (my size) in the store. Performance Bike has a one day special today. Is this a decent entry level bike? I do not want to regret later. Thanks

    I have almost the exact same neck on my old mid 90's hardtail, except mine is made by Answer. It uses a single cinch bolt for the handlebars, so no removable end cap. They were intended for flat bars only.

    I tried to fish a 3/4" to 1" rise bar through the hole on mine once and it was a no go. If I would have used a big heavy mallet and didn't care about scratching the bars up, I may have been able to force it through.

    So I would say no.

    I was trying to figure out an affordable way to get the ergomonics on that bike better for me now. I would have had to replace so many parts to get it the way I wanted, I would have been better off buying a new bike and I did. I bought a new Cannondale 29er.

    the stuff on the old bike was just too freakin' outdated.

    I rode my bike today for 10 miles. It was very comfortable, solid and smooth. I also read more about the bike and feel real good about my purchase. Now I am shopping for a bike computer....any recommendation?

    Another GT Tempest. Could be a 1999 as the stock crankset was a '99 model year. Turned it into a commuter with rear IGH (24" rear wheel, but should be a 26").

    Looking forward to a matte black paint and green accents.

    Those are great, but why have three almost identical bikes?

    Because the rule says the correct number of bikes is n+1. Because you can. I know people that collect pennies....why? They too are almost identical. These bikes are more different than pennies. Different tube sets, fillet brazed vs. TIG welded. Groove tube vs non-groove tube. XT top mount vs XT RapidFire vs. 8spc M900 XTR. I think they are far from identical.

    But they do look similar on picture. But who am I to speak since I own a few GT's myself, including 2 identical ones.

    Someone needs to 'STICKY' this thread!
    Here's my 2012 GT Zaskar 100 9r Carbon Pro.



    Today, was her inaugural ride.

    I'm in love.
    Red Rocks makes for an awesome backdrop at the Mt. Falcon Trailhead in Morrison, Colorado.



    Coming off a 2008 Hard tail Zaskar reissue and a 2001 iDrive Race (both 26") I'd never thought I'd like anything more than either of those bikes. They both KILL IT! I've spent years getting them dialed in. Today, was a game changer.

    The re-vamped iDrive, the carbon frame combined with the 29" wheelset - is amazing. This bike climbed like it was on rails. I NEVER felt like I was losing traction. I had the suspension (Fox RP23 rear) set to Medium with the correct pressure for my weight and it moved perfectly when I needed it to without sacrificing energy. If anything, I ran out of gas, before this bike ever did! She just kept begging for me to give more! It was FUN!


    The downhill, was awesome, I need to dial everything in a bit, as I changed the tires out from the stock Maxxis Aspen to a Conti X-King in the front and a Specialized Purgatory in the rear... the Aspens look nice, but I wanted two things... tubeless (with Stans kit) and a bit more agressive tread for the trails... This tire combination works WELL - if the tire pressure is right! (I had the front with a bit too much air for a waterbar on the downhill and slid off - luckily, just a little road rash and a cut-up, bruised thumb)



    Once I got the tire pressure figured out, the only thing this bike would stop for, were the uphill travelers. Other than that, NOTHING seemed to get in her way.

    I cannot WAIT to get out on another ride, on a trail with less people on it, and really open her up.

    GT Lovers - they got this one right!

    Hey hatake! So nice to run into other GT enthusiasts on the trails! The inaugural ride was rough , but fun! Had too much air in the new tires and went down hard on the DH... I'm fine now... nursing my bruises.

    If you ever want a riding companion - let me know! I try to hit the front range trails 1-3 x's a week.

    Enjoy the Zaskar! Great looking bike

    Hello,

    You must write review now ! I will to buy Sensor 3.0 at next season.

    Now I'm riding on i-Drive 3.0 (2004). Great bike at a reasonable price in these days.

    Didn't know anyone could write a review on here ( I'm reasonably new on this site)
    I got the brand new 2.0 for a STEAL price, $1200 AUD (plus $100 shipping), down from $3000! She's an awesome bright green colour, and if you look close the paint is even metallic, stunning!
    Looks like you're using "clipless" pedals, I got some with the bike, but so far have been using normal flats....how do you find the clipless?
