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?
