I dont know much about SRAM stuff. What do yall think of it? And if I search for a place with it, it gives me UK sites. Can any bike store just order it? Cool thanks.

Well, it's listed on the GT USA site, so US dealers should be able to get one. If you have a GT dealer close by, ask them about it.
I don't have much experience with SRAM stuff, other than cassettes and those old grip shifts. Never heard of the brakes on that bike. And of course everyone will hate it since it has an RST fork. Looks pretty cool, though.
If i do a search for dealers in or near dallas I get about 10 results, most of them sports authorities, none of them in the UK.
AS far as the bike goes. I don't know to much about low end freeride bikes so I will reserve judgement.

It is a nice little frame for dj/urban riding but the parts on it are not all that great. SRAM makes good stuff and crap just every other company and that frame has the lower end SRAM on it. Also, for that bikes intended purpose I would definitly get ride of the RST fork.
Lol, I know the first thing I was going to do was exchange it. Oh well it is a "downhill/exteme" hardtail. I just think it looks cool XD!

I didn't follow the link, but SRAM is trying to give Shimano a run for their $$$$.
This is a good thing actually. It keeps the end user's cost lower.....
Both are equally good as far as quality is concerned.
hell no! don't buy it! that's 3.0! the derailleur is entirely plastic... that is not something i would have on a DH bike... god that thing is crap.
that thing will be alot better... they have another model with a rigid fork... that's about the same $$$ as the gt.
don't buy gt
Lol 800$! I just spent 1k on my brusier six months ago. Need to go cheap!:D
