MTB buying advice
Has anybody got one of these?? Trying to find some info on it, and it seems to be a bit of a unknown.
Anybody got one. Good points, bad points. Tips? Weight?
If your on about the 2008 one then we have one at work in stock.
Ive been wanting to get a dual but ive never had a problem with GT so i havent looked at any others and when this one came in it took my fancy. However after looking at it i changed my mine.
I know this sounds silly but mainly because of the quads. Im not a fan of them and just having a little ride round on it prooved my point of them being censored more. Fair enough they need to bed in but they still felt censored !
aswell im not a fan of Truvativ as i find they are over priced. So the reason that i didnt get it was because id be changing to much stuff!
However if you dont mind Truvativ and give the brakes more of a chance than i have ever given quad then you probs would like the bike.
It has a nice weight to aswell i found.
we have about £200 nocked off ours as theres a few scratches on it, so it seemed a bargin for the price!
Best advice really is to go and have a look yourself at one.
put your postcode in the link below and it will tell you your nearest stockist
(Ofcourse give them a ring to make sure they have one in!)
Wow! That was more than I was expecting.
Thank you very much.
I must admit the one I have my eye on is the 2008 elite model which has XT brakes, although still the Truvativ chainset.
Im just trying to find some where that has one so I can have a proper look. Your shops not on the south coast is it??
Im afraid not were based up north.
We also have the elite 08 in and that tbh is just so much more better, but more expensive obv. But i just like that one so much more.
The best thing to do is ring u your local store, and ask them if they have one in, or if they could get one sale or return in. (Although they may charge you postage)
