This bike is fantastic and i say that after 2yrs of ownership so i know the bike well,its handled absolutely everything ive thrown at it from road work to taming the forest tracks of Northumberland.When the terrain gets rough,unlock the adjustable forks and hang on to the oversize bars,the GT soaks it all up no problem.For the roads simply lock the forks and you've got a very capable road bike with 27 gears at your disposal,very good quality gears as well,the Shimano Deore Rapid Fire shifters make gear changes simple,one click of the lever and they jump instantly into position.The GTXC2 is light as well,12.7kg so its easy throw about when needed through tight twisty trails.The bike has been used for work and not as a toy,its,had a hard life but still rides great despite it showing a few battle scars,my mate who accompanies me on most of my rides has had to replace various components on his more expensive Scott MTB tackling the same terrain as my GTXC2,he's already decided he will be replacing the Scott with a GT when the time comes,if your considering this bike,don't hesitate,get one,they're fantastic bikes.
