I spent more getting his bike, hoping to get something lighter than my previous one, but ended up as heavy.
It's GT avalanche 1.0. With Avid mechanical disc brakes, Judy XC, Deore front and LX rear. Hardtail.
My previous bike was the Giant Warp DS-2. Well, in terms of components I am very happy with the GT, but I really hoped to get something light, maybe in the 11~12kg range. This one is 14kg as I have just weighed.
I want light bike for acceleration and overall burden. It matters a lot, probably most of you would agree to that.
Anyhow, I got to start loving this bike or else I will be in pain.
