    $1200 isn't a badf price! It has holzfeller stem, juicy 7 brakes, fox fork/shock, and overall decent componentry for a $1200 pricetag.

    OMG are you kidding ?

    is this right? http://www.cambriabike.com/shopexd.asp?id=15622 because 1200 bucks for that bike seems insane, compare to picking up a trashed used stinky compared to that thing. isnt a downhill bike, but still.

    do these have something wrong with them or something ? because that seems like a LOT of bike for 1200 dollars.

    Not a bad price at all. And it comes with the nice reflectors......

    Lots has been saved on the rear shock, wheelset, shifter/derailleurs. But those can all be upgraded once they wear out / get broken.

    Not to mention that it weighs 0 pounds!!!

    I don't think the fork/shock is very good for freeride. The GT bikes also tend to run a fairly high leverage ratio, and you need a stiffer spring right away to prevent bottoming, but the stiffer springs often times also makes it less compliant to small bumps. Plus the i-drive units wear out pretty quickly. Very small bearings very the main pivot. But it's nice looking. Definitely a lot for your money. Comparing it to a Stinky though? I'd still get the Stinky. You know you're getting a quality bike that's more than proved itself.

    yea, I'm not sure I would buy a GT, though people seem to like the DHi. plus, with spending 1200 bucks, you got some money to keep all the components, buy a new frame, and keep the GT for...whatever.

    And it should be...the frame weighs 10lbs. or better. Moab Cyclery had some in the rental fleet, and they held up well. Some other I-drive models didn't.
