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    the stuff on the old bike was just too freakin' outdated.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