    Used to ride a bit as a kid, had a mongoose, i'm 24 now and need a new ride. This chicks offered me an unriden performer for 180. Anyone got an opinion on this should i get it or shell out more cash and get something like an entry level redline?? HELP times running out.

    i actually just bought mysefl a 2004 gt performer off ebay that has never been out of the box.. and the bike is sick! i absolutly love it... and i bought it i think for abotu 180 or a lil more... i mean it's deffinatly not the best bike in the world but it does the trick and it will last you.. it's a great bike to get and then once you get up more money it's easy to "pimp" it .
    i could get it if you still can. I'm extremely happy with my purchase

    Where is the picture of the bike? What year is it?

    The current model performer - as on gtbicycles.com is a pretty generic entry level bike. You won't (WILL NOT!) find a better Redline for the money, but I'm not sure you won't find other bikes out there in general that are better for your cash. I would spend a little time doing some pricing research for online shops in your neck of the woods.

    It's not a BAD bike, it's just entry level. There are no major flaws, but there is very little additional information from the GT website about that bike. It is likely tri-moly with low-grad parts... but it seems to have decent design.

    It would be similar to a lot of entry level Haros, or other bikes around the same price.

    Keep in mind that brand new, built up, front a bike shop it is 200 pounds, so not a lot more and a bike shop will build it and warranty it for you.

    i didn't go to a shop to get it put together. but i have been very happy with this bike so far. if i was able to i deffinatly would have gone with a Haro.. that's what i wanted first... but i needed a bike asap. like i said before this bike is very easy to upgrade with. deffiantly couldn't afford some insane bike however it treats me just fine.

    i heard the big is real heavy, like in some other threads on this site, but i'd check it out first, ride it around, see if it fits.
