    Way too long with far too much reviewing. And he didn't weigh the bike.

    It's nice to see reviews of bikes from the smaller brands, pretty good video for someone who wants to see one going together, but kinda' thin on a ride review.

    Weight, well, knowing the weight won't change the weight, ie it weighs what it weighs.

    GG bikes are not the lightest, nor are they the heaviest.

    If low weight is one of your prerequisites, then I'd look elsewhere, GG bikes are big and burly.

    I never said low weight was a prerequisite. Whether I want low weight or not is irrelevant, it's an integral spec when considering a bike; to simply hand-wave it off is weak.
    Is it nice to see vids on smaller brands? Sure. Does my critique still stand? Yes.

    I'm a GG owner and fan. I agree with you that the weight should be noted. It's an important aspect of a bike, like the amount of suspension travel. That way the consumer can balance that factor against other features of the bike. Everything on a bike is compromise in some way or another and it would be good to know that strength was prioritized over weight with this bike.

    Go to their website, weights are stated.

    So the reality of how much a bike weighs is that all parts weigh the same from bike to bike, the ONLY difference in how much a bike weighs is the frame. So I could understand the desire to know how much a bike frame weighs, but the rest is immaterial.

    I believe the frame weights are listed on the website and when I weighed my GG frames they were comparable.

    So, if you buy two bikes with the same components and one weight 120z more, the conclusion you can draw is that the frame one bike weighs 12 oz more than the other bike.

    I love math, it's the one logical thinking process we have remaining in this world.

    So you could also message the guy from the vid and ask how much the bike weighs

    Or he could do like every other build video out there - once it's built, hang it on the scale and prove to everyone it's weight, instead of having to rely on claimed wait.

    I love science, it's one area of study that allows us to solve practical problems, and make informed decisions .
