    Yeah, we all hate those bikes that pedal well and have good suspension performance.

    We the people ...

    With release of the new Fury....makes me wonder when the new Sanction 29 is coming?








    Ok, that's 1000% complete speculation. But it would be rad.

    I'm having the expert on top of my short list, it's really well spec'ed, good priced but it look like this beauty is quite heavy compared to many if not all competitors. Not much word from reviewer about how it pedals and climb.

    Looks like a great bike good geo, 160F/150R, threaded BB, replaceable ISCG mount, flip chip looks easy to change on the trail (could help on long climbs). Wish it was a Carbon rear triangle (GT claims it's done for better longevity, yeah it's to cut costs). Assuming the rocker arm is too. Not keen on only one color frame option, and the cable routing could be covered.

    Still would love to demo one though. Maybe the 2020 frames will work these kinks out.

    For anyone else wondering why the weight of this bike is on the heavy side, have a look at the spec of the Tires they put on those bike. The Schwalbe "performance" tire are listed at 1400g. on Schwalbe official site while the "Evolution" line of the same size tire are listed at 9xxg. That's penality weight of one pound on each wheel!!! The Maxxis Minion are also listed in the 9 hundred grams.

    This discovery put back the bike on top of my list as tires can easily be change even if they are costly.
