Its a good bike for the money, but a good 4lbs heavier than the Fury. Hvae a test on it.

hi mate if i were you i would go for a kona there great bikes great handling, very strong and they are a simple but effective degsign.the i drive system on the gt isnt really water tight and if it breaks can be a bugger to fix.hope i helped. :D

But Konas at this price are very poorly specced - the GT is a far better bike then any Kona for this price!
