    I wish my performance bikes carried bike with more than 4" of travel... That would be a cool bike to demo I want to try it. But defiantly not own.

    POS! They have a long ways to go before that bike is worthy of anything but show. No parts spec can help that POS internal hub system.

    Exactly my feelings on it - I want to see freeride/dh bikes head in this direction - so sick of killing der's - so ANY bike that makes the attempt is cool by me...

    They will never sell that. It probably has an inch of dust on it from the Super Go days. But, I gotta give it to GT, great ideas and one of the first of its kind to make it to the stores.

    it is nice to see, but with weight penalty and cost...it isn't going to be a hot thing

    Why is there a guard on the gear box when it is that high off the ground? Does it have a bash guard on the chain ring?

    It might not be an authentic Horst link but I don't think it's a simple, high single pivot either. There is clearly an additional pivot on the chainstay near the dropout and the brake caliper is mounted to the seat stay. Looks like a modified version of the Horst kinda similar to what Chumba uses.

    no fsr.. single pivot

    Ok so i'm looking at an IT-1 as i speak. Swingarm (what 'looks' like the seatstay) is mounted about an inch or two behind the main carrier axle for the nexxus hub. Down goes the chain to the 20mm axle which is mounted... ON THE SAME ARM that is mounted high on the frame... This pulls the lower link ('looks' like a chainstay) which in turn rotates the actuating triangle by the bb. This means that the linkage that the wheel is affixed to is mounted directly to the frame, in one location and moves in an arc around that one SINGLE PIVOT behind the hub.

    Saying this, it is not an fsr design as the linkage that the wheel is affixed to is not floating.

    The only way that that frame could work is if it is a single pivot.. think about it. if it were an fsr than it would need a large chain tensioner as the wheel moved upward it's distance from the nexxus hub would decrease, thus the secondary drive chain would shorten, thus the need for a tensioner..

    Its a high single pivot... with a goofy shock linkage.. thats all..

    NOT FSR

    I stand corrected. I see that now with the larger, more detailed pic. Agreed.

    you obviously haven't really ridden the bike or even seen one up close. look at the attached pic, the bb is clearly welded to the downtube like a normal bike. nothing floating here pal....

    I'm pretty sure that's a floating BB. Looks like I-drive to me.

    Bicyclist: go back and look at the Lahar thread on RM. the GT IT-1 is practically the same style of linkage system....

    It's a friggin single pivot and the BB doesn't float anywhere....

    I really wish they made it with a lower and slacker front end and brought the BB down .5" - 1" though. I did see some demo video of it being raced on a NZ track and the thing looked absolutely ripping.

    it is a heavy mo fo but who really cares unless ur sam hill or Peaty. i know a guy who has one, and it actaully rides pretty nice. it shifts great too. its actually aimed more as a freeride biek not their dh bike.
