    Spokes - Sapim Race 2.0-1.8-2.0
    Titanium QuickRelease skewers (77g pair)
    Tires - Continental X-King 2.2/Race King 2.2
    Tubes - Maxxis superlight
    Cassette - SunRace MX7 (6 sprockets on a spider)
    Brakes - Avid Juicy 3 + G3 CleanSweep 160mm rotors
    Grips - Lizard Skins

    Greetings from Ukraine!

    Tell me about your skewer choice

    Why the Superstar skewers? Do you worry about strength?

    Actually, I haven't heard any bad feedbacks yet.. Therefore I'm not worried

    frame question

    I hoping that somebody would be able to confirm that all Senors frames made from the same tubing, IE: the Sensor 1.0 frame is the same as the 3.0 frame. Also is the any place to pick up a new frame.

    this is correct, my brother (ct19) has a 3.0 and i have a 2.0 its the same frame. only the components are different.

    ive seen a couple of frames only on ebay but no one ive seen sells just the frame atleast in america.

    They are identical. The only difference in sensor 1.0-3.0 is the components (fork, drivetrain, etc)
    Moreover, it seems that the frame remained exactly the same in 2010, 2011 and 2012

    UPD. I've just discovered that 2012 GT Sensor frame have a semi-integrated headset instead of integrated in 2010-2011. So there's probably is a slight difference between different years models

    I got my Sensor 9r Expert for $1300 brand new at performance bike in December. I've already put 600 miles on it and I've loved every single one! It's stock except I put forte platform pedals on it and swapped the kenda small block AteShitOnMyFace tires for a maxxis ardent 2.4 in the front and a 2.3 exiwolf in the rear. My girl friend is getting jealous because I've been spending more time on top of this thing lately instead! I'll never go back to a 26" tire.

    It seems you need a shorter stem.
    What can you tell about Sensor 9r rear triangle stiffness? Have you rode another 9r to compare with?

    It seems totally strange but 2012 lower models of Sensor (3.0, 4.0 and 9r Elite) now come with zerostack!

    http://www.gtbicycles.com/2012/bikes...012-sensor-3-0
    http://www.gtbicycles.com/2012/bikes...012-sensor-4-0

    Specs in 2012 PDF catalog confirm that too.
    Higher models (1.0, 2.0, 9r Pro and Expert) still have an Integrated headset.

    I see it now, only looked at the 1.0

    That is strange I'd rather have the zero stack sort of, but the integrated headset is to save weight so it sort of see why it is that way. But it's dumb to have 4 different sensor frames in production

    I'd rather have a zerostack too. 50g lighter frame isn't worth replaceable headset cups, imo.

    I doubt that it's too complicated to install integrated and zerostack headtubes on different production lines in Taiwan. Same frames but different headtubes. It ain't cost any extra expenses for customer (GT Bic).
    But I have totally no idea why should one do this difference at all

    The year in review.

    I just noticed this thread: I've been riding my Sensor for a year now and love it. From lakes to mountain tops. Nokia Extreme 294 studded's are going on it TONIGHT Frozen trails tomorrow.

    Anyone here running a RP23 on their Sensor? If so, is it worth the money? I just have the R that came with my 3.0.

    In my opinion, the Sensor doesn't need an on-the-fly adjustable shock

    I-drive does such a good job of isolating the rear suspension from pedal inputs, I find myself ignoring the platform on my RP-2. What kind of problem are you trying to solve with your Sensor?

    I have a X-Fusion stock rear shock and I think it would be the last detail in bike that will be changed.
    Totally agree with joe_bloe, the suspension is designed so well that you don't need a top shock to have a great performance

    I have a Sensor 1.0 with the RP23 and you can hardly tell the difference between pro-pedal and open.

    2010 vs 2011 Sensor 2.0

    VW, thanks for clarifying the difference by model year. I'm looking at a '10 or '11 Sensor 2.0 (XS, i'm 5'4")or maybe even a 3.0 from Performance. The '10 3.0 looks like a nice deal. Can you or anyone else give some feedback on delta between 2.0 and 3.0 suspension and forks? Drive train aside, is there a compelling reason to go 2.0 vs. 3.0 from a ride/handling perspective. Intended us is for the mountain park system here around Phoenix.

    I'd considered a Sensor 9er, but the frames are too large for me. The challenges of being short (and looking for a sweet deal!).

    i am also 5'4" and ride a XS sensor 2.0. Right now performance has the 2010 model sensor 2.0 for $1499,join their club and get 10% back. then cancel after a year.

    I have the 2010 Sensor 2.0, bought from Performance, post #28 in this thread. I would at least go with the 2.0, Fox RP2 rear shock and Fox Float R shock. The downside is the chaep rear hub, Deore, mine went bad but was replaced under warranty and the Avid Juicy 3 brakes are disappointing, wish they were the SLX. I do see that Performance has the XS Sensor 1.0 for $1799 + 10% back with the membership. They didn't have the 1.0 XL at the time I ordered mine or I would've got it instead. Full XT, RP23 shock Fox Float 32R Fork, amazing bike for the price. You can have it shipped to a store for a lot less than normal shipping to your home and they assemble it in the store.

    Hi,
    I will appreciate your opinion on size issue, for Sensor 2011:
    would men's S size (22" TT effective, 28,3 standover) fit a person 5,4 tall with 30" inseem (with shoes on)?
    I don't know where exactely on a TT is standover measured?
    XS seems very short on TT effective.

    I like long TT with very short stem, but standover worries me. Unfortunately I can not try the bike anywhere.

    Thank you.
