GT Chucker/Ruckus


I used to race BMX and rode flatland when I was younger, and attempted to get back into it. I bought a flatland bike a few months back (DK Signal), but it's just way too small for me. I'm 23 y/o and about 6'1". The Signal's 18" top tube wasn't working out for me.

Now, I'm interested in buying a MTB with a budget of around $800. I'm not looking a full suspension bike, and would prefer a hard tail. I was wondering if anyone has any opinions on the GT Ruckus UF or the Chucker 2.0. I've never been a big fan of GT, but it looks like a decent bike.

I'm just a little worried about the frame. I cracked three GT Interceptors when I was a kid. I know this is a MTB so I would assume the frame would be a little tougher. However, I live in Southern Nevada and I want something that can handle a terrain that's a bit mountainous.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

GTs have sure come a long ways - for that money you might find a used Force for sale - an amazing bike
