This is a review for the most part and a bit about me as a new member:
I've ridden BMX bikes for years and as a rider that is 6'4" it's fairly uncomfortable and I just look plain goofy! I bought a XC bike last year but XC is so boring that I always found myself back on the 20"er.
This year I got a great deal on a 09' GT Chucker 2.0 and I've been riding it at skate parks and DJs and it's been an amazing experience. Drops that I wouldn't even fathom about dropping off of or over clearing landings where on a 20" I would think,"Wow, I'm gonna die," have no effect on impact. Front suspension is so godly and riding a 26" around 20"ers just makes me smile when they ask,"You're riding that mountain bike here?"
The GT Chucker is a gateway for me where I thought I would go halfway on XC / DJ and Park. However, I see myself at the Park and DJs more than XC that I'm going to be purchasing Jamis Kromo within a few weeks (I work at a shop so I get deals on Jamis / GT products).
The Chucker I think is a great gateway bike to at least get your feet wet, and if you don't dig DJ / Park as much as you thought at least you have a nice XC / Freeride platform. It's just a decent all around bike!
Anyway, I'm drunk so kay bye!
