GT Aggessor
Can anyone give me some feedback on the GT Aggessor ? I'm a rodie and just love my rode bike , it is my baby. But I live in Colorado where it can get pretty cold and snowy and I would like to try riding this winter and thought I would get me a different bike for snow and cold weather riding. I purchased a GT Aggessor through a Schwinn liquidation sale. I just don't know if it was a good purchase. Any opinions about it ?

I have a 2000 model and love it.It could use some upgrades but what bike couldn't.I've been riding it for a year and a half and have had no prob w/ it.

It depends if its a 2000 or 2001 model. If it's 2000 I agree with Redfox.

However if its a 2001 model then it depends if it's an Aggressor 1.0, 2.0, 3.0. The 3.0 and 2.0 are quite good but with a few minor flaws such as basic V brakes and gears. The 1.0 however is a class bike for the money IMO. If somebody comes into my shop with a budget around the 1.0 price I'll virtually always recommend it over and othe similar priced Hardtail.

Definitely. I bought a 2001 GT about 5 months or so ago and Im happy with it so far. solid bike.

Only thing I really would change is the weight of the thing. It's abit heavy. About 35lbs. as far as I could tell from weighing myself and then pickin up the bike while on the scale. Prolly had my waterbottles on it still,:p . Also if you're a smaller rider like me (5'7") than your gonna need a smaller frame and with the angled down top tube, making room for 2 bottle cages can be a pain. Shimano Deore derailleur shifts just fine for me as well.

Final grade: B+

If it was lighter , it would get a definite A.

I finally got my GT aggressor 2001. I took it for a spin yesterday and I really do like it. I'm a small rider, 5'2" and I ordered the extra small. Your right about the problem with no room for a water bottle but I got more bike than I expected. It will do just fine for my riding in winter . I have to admit though, it is so much different than my rode bike. Heavier !!! Thanks for all the feedback guys, I do appreciate it.

The weather, if it was like today,( a Colorado fall day, blue sky, low 80's and leaves just starting to change), could cause me to have a headache tomorrow !!!!! Might not be able to make it into work.
