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… Read Full Review

This is the worst bike I have ever ridden. The chain kept on digging into my leg, the seat is terribly uncomfortable, it manoevers terribly through narrow areas, it corners too wide, the gears do not change smoothly, the handlebars are overcrowded....has absolutely no speed. Should be taken off the market… Read Full Review

The GT Aggressor is an excellent bike for the money,you must understand it isnt a bike made for downhill or freeride its a recreational bike designed for riding forest tracks with minor bumps and shallow hollows the instruction manual that comes with the bike explains this with regards to the forks they are not designed for hardcore riders,the frame will take the punishment no probs but if you want to hammer the bike into doing all sorts then you will have to spend lots of money to upgrade, ie… Read Full Review

Pros - Nicely constructed, gears and brakes very smooth and efficient. Suspension lock out works well for different terrain.
Handles nicely on all surfaces, so far tested it on; tarmac, mud, gravel, grit and stones and it carries on moving over everything!
Cons - Seat is a little firm.
Defiantly recommend to someone looking for a tough off road bike for recreational use or for on road although its a little sluggish due to its hench 2.1" tyres… Read Full Review

I bought my GT Aggressor 2 six months ago. I had my heart set on a Kona or Specialized bike but opted for the GT Aggressor 2 because Halfords had a special discount offer on at the time and I could collect the bike from my local store fully assembled and ready to ride. I checked out as many reviews of the bike as I could beforehand and was very encouraged by what other owners had reported about it. Initially I was delighted when I took delivery. It looked great and seemed smooth and well built… Read Full Review

Great looking bike for a start, and a great range of colours.
I brought a GT agressor 1 second hand off ebay, for around £300. The ride was a bit of a slog going uphill and on road. However, as soon as it pointed downhill, it really was a beautiful ride. I found it flowed really well, was very forgiving, and had a great ride position. Also, due to the incredibly small weight, it was very easy to hop, and use on jumps.
The only real problems i found was that the rear deralier snapped off… Read Full Review

i have recently bought the GT AGGRESSOR XC1 and have loved every minute of riding it. the bike is built well and it comes with some pretty good components. i would recommend the bike to anyone from beginner to ammatuer or just people who like to go for a quiet ride on the mountain. i have up graded the wheels to halo and have bought a new crank for the bike as i attempted down hill on it with a few friends, i wouldn't recommend it on this bike!! i would of liked it if GT had stated what this… Read Full Review

This is a pretty good bike. I bought the 2010 XC3 about 5 months ago, and it's a good buy for its price.
It's a great bike for trails, but don't attempt downhill. The frame is well-built (6065 Aluminium in triple triangle format) so it's rigid and light. Don't try dirt jumping though, the forks are SR suntour 120mm (which are pertty pathetic) and they're worth upgrading to marzocchi or rock shox. Tektro Auriga Comp brakes, same as used on most DJ Konas, although not completely reliable… Read Full Review

i bought a 2002 GT Aggressor 2.0 i fall of '02 @ a locl shop in Chicago for i wanna say 3-350$ brand new, STOCK! rarely even took it out of the shed for three years, started riding downtown & along the lakefront maybe 5-6 times a month with friends. got a flat once there and brought it to a local shop in the Loop. i bought some michelin Country Rocks and shelved the stubby off roaders, then put a decent computer on it. Ive ridden it probably 1000 miles in the last 2-3 years, off road about 10%… Read Full Review

Bought a GT Agressor three years ago and have been riding it about 20 miles a day since. for that sort of hardcore use it is still in amazing condition. i have gone through a full set of coggs and wheels and it's still performing at its very best. the fork has lost a bit of its spring but other than that it is spot on.
I will be replacing it with another one very soon, same bike. The only reason I am giving it three out of five stars is because it is so very heavy that for off-road… Read Full Review

Great bike, just starting out in mtb'ing and also use it to get to work. I went for an XC2, great spec for the price and looks great in black and gloss white. Seems like a good frame and is nice to ride, the brakes are very good and so are the gears although i still need to fine tune them a little. Have upgraded the pedals for some white v8's and some white Yeti grips. For the price you really cant go wrong, might upgrade the forks once the oe have given up. So all in all a great starter bike… Read Full Review

Bought the 09 GT Aggressor in june this year. So far ive had an excellent time with it and am thoroughly pleased and continue to be impressed with the performance of the bike. Ive been using it mainly for off road downhill mountain biking and it has coped effortlessly even although I have been pushing it hard. Ive also used it on road/path and find it to be very smooth due to its lightweight. Buy this now, you will not be dissapointed with whatever riding you wish to use it for!… Read Full Review
