    Sweet but

    Stop it, my old Zaskar conversion is getting jealous. Its a shame GT doesn't think more of their frame and put better parts on it.

    Very nice- didn't even know that frame existed. I will be adding another GT SS conversion to the board soon.

    yeah, it'd be good if they did a frame only option too

    does anyone know if theres such thing as an aftermarket remote lockout for fox forks, i find i use it quite a bit on the SS when i have to stand up.

    i just took it for its 2nd ride, a bit of a struggle because i was out too late last night but still a bit of fun

    I saw the bike at interbike and was very impressed, I like the old school triangle and the small tubing, looks very classic and classy.

    That must be a steel frame, right? Are the components stock, with the Stan's rims? Man, nice looking bike, good to see that GT is still in the game. They've done a great job of keeping the quality and innovation up since the whole bankruptcy deal.

    yep steel, the standard parts that are still there are the rear hub, seatpost, seat, bars, headset, brakes, truvativ blaze cranks and BB, those pedals but i ride with my eggbeaters and ahhhh thats it i think

    ive got the king headset coming, got some titec pluto bars as well but need to get a 31.8mm clamp stem, got a king cog to put on and the rest of it will stay for now anyway but i'll get sick of the brakes pretty soon and want to replace them

    specs

    nice looking! I found a LBS that will be stocking these soon. Seems like a decent package for the price. EBB, disc, steel, etc.

    details here

    Good job!

    Nice rig! That is a great color, too. I imagine these will give the Monocog a runfor the money at that price!

    Are you diggin' the ruckus?

    How's the ruckus been treating you? I'm considering one myself but haven't been able to find too many reviews. There's two posted on the product reviews - sounds like it may be a bit heavy.

    ahh pretty good actually, its gotten a bit more upgraded than in those pics though, ive got a profile racing rear hub in their tangerene colour, thompson stem, titec carbon bars, mango CK headset.. and i took that ugly guard off. Mine weighs i think just under 11.3kg with all the bits that are on it and my eggbeater ti pedals

    Cool. How does it ride? Do you recall or guess how much is weighted with stock components? Thanks.

    nah not too sure what it weighed out of the box, i prettymuch took it out of the box, removed packaging and the J2 and put my fox fork on it and then all the upgrades went from there so yeah not too sure. at a guess and i mean a really crappy guess probly something like 13.5kg but yeah as i say i dont really have a clue.

    Hey MoparChris,

    Any long term updates on this bike? I'm looking to get one cheap. How'd the EBB hold up?

    thanks,

    this is my ruckus, everything is stock except for the forks






    I didn't like the rockshock J3's they were alright but I found they bottomed out a lot so I tossed on my old '04 marzocchi bomber marathon s's and now it rides like a dream.
