My son learned to ride a bike a couple of weeks ago, so I took the plunge and got us all a bike. I took two bikes back that I bought for myself, from WalMart. One was a Next brand comfort bike, I didn't like the 7 speed only aspect. The other was a Mongoose MR 100. The shifters felt cheap.
Finally, I have a friend who owns a Pawn shop. He had a GT brand bike out front, he bought if from a friend who rode it for one summer and sold it to him because he was moving, and had no interest in it anymore. This was a family guy, he got bikes for the whole bunch, and spent a ton of money on it. My friend, Warren, said that the bike shop sold this bike for $575.00. The paint job says GT Aggressor 3.0, but the frame is definitely a Moto frame, BMX type, aluminum frame. All of the Aggressor models that I looked at had the road bike, 10-speed type of frame. This one does not have that frame. The only frame that I found like this at the GT bikes web site was the Moto model.
It has the Kalloy adjustable neck handle bars, 3 speed crank, 7 speed cassette, all Shimano. It has MRX grip shifters, which are really nice compared to the cheaper ones that I have seen. It also has the gel seat, and the UNO shock pole for the seat. I am happy with it. I got the bike for $200.00. I hope that I did good on the deal. Best - Ted
