    Recommendations for a GT?

    Hello, i have recently become interested in buying a new MTB (preferably a GT). I was thinking more of a Hardtrail MTB as i like to ride on the roads, but i also ride on some quite rough off-road terrain. The terrain isn't too extreme therefore im not thinking of a very high end bike. My price range would be about anything up to £580. If anyone could give me a recommendation on a good HTMTB for this price range preferably GT, but any recommendations would help.

    Thanks.

    The Avalanche is a solid deal for a hardtail MTB, that would be my recommendation.

    That would be great. My girlfriend had the Aggressor and loved it, the Avalanche looks to be slightly better. You could even go to a lower trim level to save some cash, if you don't absolutely need the disc brakes.

    Rock Shox XC30 w/100mm Travel QR, Adjustable Rebound, Turnkey Lockout.

    With a 42% discount that would qualify as a smokin deal! Use the extra cash on a good helmet and gloves!
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I can't even find my bike when I'm on drugs. -Willie N.
