    Any GT Peace 9er owners that added front suspension?

    I bought a 2010 Peace second-hand for my son and I have no specs on the bike. Looking for advice from anyone that added front suspension. What suspension did you add? Specs? I really don't know what will fit and what won't.

    I put a 2007 Reba Race on mine. It was okay, but suspension is not for me, so I took it off. 100mm travel it worked great just liked rigid better.

    Thanks Sleepe... I will scour the used market. My son is the rider and he is used to his multi-speed's suspension. The first ride went well, but by the end he was missing the suspension's comfort.

    I'm running a 2010 Reba on my 09 Peace 9r at 100mm. Just remember that the fork is suspension corrected for 80mm so you might hit the downtube with the top of the fork. I solved that with a Cane Creek headset with +5mm race. Never had a problem hitting the downtube with that setup.

    The 2010 GT Peace 9R is suspension corrected for an 80mm fork. I run a set of Rock Shox Reba 80mm on mine.
