Excellent Bike For The Money

Nov 24, 2004
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Excellent Value, Rock Solid Frame, Durability

Cons:A Bit Too Heavy, Poor Factory Tires

The Bottom Line: I would recommend this bike to anyone who wants a good bike for daily extended use and the occasional tour off road


I bought this bike in the summer of 2000 after my 1992 Schwinn Sidewinder finally gave out on me after 12,000 miles. I bought this bike because it was in the price range that i was looking for($450) and it had the comfort and ruggedness balance that i was looking for. Since i do both just "loaf" around town on it and do some off-roading as well, this bike seemed to be the perfect choice. I love the ruggedness of the major components and the frame. Outside of normal wear items(brakes/tires)i have only had to replace the grip shifter and both nylon pedals.I feel thats quite remarkable since the bike has close to 7000 miles on it. The factory tires really don't cut it for any type of serious off roading. I would recommend upgrading to something more aggressive. The front suspension shocks,although compentant for riding on roads, tends to "bottom out" on rough off roading situations no matter the setting. The frame and associated hardware is rock solid,though a bit heavy. I was riding my bike down a park walkway when my mind got distracted by a lovely young lady jogging by. Before i knew what happened, me and my GT flew down a 15' flight of stairs at 22 MPH. The bike landed directly on both wheels and tumbled over and over.While i suffered a broken arm,right hand,and a cracked knee cap (not to mention some serious road rash),the only damage my GT suffered was a broken reflector! This is,as with most GT's made prior to 2003, represents a very solid value for the money. What do i hate about this bike?.Nothing,other than the fact the GT name has been disgraced by being bought by a certain "substandard company" who has made the bike into garbage!
