    Wink I 'accidentally' bought a GTW

    The bike is a 2012 Avalanche 2.0. Is there any real difference between this and a normal GT other than size?

    I went to all my local bike shops and the bikes were uncomfortably tall. I then saw this one on craigslist and when I went to look at it I was excited that I found a bike that felt right compared to all the other ones.

    After making sure everything appeared to be working properly I bought it without paying attention to the graphics on it.

    A picture of a link to the bike?
    Do you mean it's a GTW by that its a GT Womens bike, or GTW being something that isn't a GT but some knock off?
    All the gear and no idea.

    Probably the women's version.

    RockShox XC 28 TK suspension fork features 100mm of travel along with TurnKey lockout and easy rebound adjustment; a softer spring is tuned for women

    Maybe has a female specific saddle, though it doesn't mention it. So OP, should be ok depending on your weight.

    Here's a thread about swapping out the spring, if you can still find one:

    Perfect! The guy I bought it from built it up as a street cruiser, and I had planned on getting new front forks and a saddle. If the only difference other than those two things is a sticker and some flowers I'm okay with that.

    Go the full hog and get a sex change, cheaper than a new bike probably too and you'll get some tits to play with if you get bored.
