    So you’re saying the Gt is not worth spending money on at all, i have read it has a good frame the same frame as the better Gt
    Why is it not worth getting it upgraded as for a small amount of money i could have better parts

    I would love the rockhopper but until I can save for this bike i need something better to ride


    thanks for you help but can you explain why you said save your money ?

    Thanks

    Congratulations. Nice bike!

    Are you planning on removing the kickstand and reflectors?
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    Thank you!

    That will make it a much nicer looking bike.
