Comments about GT 2005 GT Avalanche 3.0 Mountain Bike:

For this kind of money, I am more that delighted in this ride. The shocks are smooth; the tires are the real deal. It looks just as good as it handles. I ride it home from work, and I face some serious bumps and curbs in the road. It's a little heavy to carry it up my stairs, but for this money, it is alright.

Comments about GT 2005 GT Avalanche 3.0 Mountain Bike:

This is an all-around great mtn bike, and the low cost is unbelievable. I used this bike my 2nd day of owning it in the North Cheyenne Canyon area around Colo Springs. It was a real grind going up--had to push the bike about 1/3 or more of the time (that's not the bike's fault though!). Coming downhill was a real payoff though. Make no mistake, this bike can be used for "real" mountain biking. I was speeding over 6+" stumps and bumps, easily maneuvering 1 foot dropoffs, etc. It did fine. The wheels weren't even tweaked after the ride, though my rear brake cable is stretched a bit (not surprising--I was on it a lot coming down). Only downside to me is the bike is a little on the heavy side. [...] Though the components are lower-end Shimano, they worked perfect on my 3+ hour ride, not a single glitch, the chain didn't even come off once. I've read bad reviews of the shock that's on this bike (mine has a Suntour SR XS60, I think that's the right model #?). It has 80mm of travel, is pre-load adjustable, and did fine on my ride. I guess only time will tell how long it'll last, but I was more than pleased with it's performance. This bike has a solid, double-walled frame that would make a great platform for upgrading components on down the line. Enjoy!
