    This thing cost about a tenth of my full time rig, but man is it fun for winter training/ get strong in the mud season. One of these days I'll put the brakes back on but have not needed them thus far. Highly advise for an on the cheap get started bike. Only complaint is the website said it was disc ready, however when I went to see it the front was disc ready and the back not. That's a problem due to the fact that I was hoping to flip the rear and run a Tomicog as the fixed solution. Had to get a surly hub instead. Added to the cost but ended up being more worth it for training purposes than I thought. After a day on tough trails on this I'm pretty beat. Looking forward to getting back in the mountains this summer but for now I'm happy with the P9er to get me though.

    at the LBS here '07's are $500 and '08's are $550.
    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    $450 (including tax & 2-day FedEx) - www.performancebike.com before xmas internet sale...but now they only have size-SM left in the 07's and have a higher sale price.

    I changed the saddle, tires and headset and dropped 2 lbs. off the bike with $100 in parts from local Craigslist. It's heavy for a rigid single speed at 26 lbs., but it doesn't ride heavy...

    Cheap, Fast & Fun!

    No rear discs on those? I am surprised. Love the look of those.
    I am immune to your disdain.

    Can depend a lot on ya inseam and other stuff.

    I'm of average proportions... nothing odd and I'm 178cm high and I ride a medium... did you get it from a bike shop cos they can measure you up, or should have.

    Some people actually prefer 29ers a little smaller though so it may fit you good... test ride it and see how it goes

    I bought this bike from wistons cycles, 299 pounds I choose this size becouse for last 3 years i was riding on fix-gear rocket also samll(size 54) and i enjoy small frame so thinking of this i choose small GT hopefully will be ok

    I ordered bike lest tousday with promise 24h delivery , is it posible that week got 24 hours? ;D I can't wait anymore.

    From your explanation it sounds like the small will be perfect as you enjoy them and the GT feels a little big when ya ride it. My friends call mine 'The Horse'... so small is probably fine.

    Great bike, you got a great price too.
