I couldn't be without my GT's, good deal voted hot.
#3
Much better value than all the £50 "bikes" that have been posted recently, probably a lot safer as well. Looks like a great deal for someone who wants to have a bike for occasional use.
#4
This anywhere near comparable in quality to a Cannondale?
#5
looks like a good deal with the specification.

To a cannondale costing £3000? No.

The bike is good for the price, and GT is a decent brand. They were at least the equal of cannondale some years ago, though I think they went bankrupt about a decade ago and have since had to rebuild their reputation.
#8
Does anyone know what the weight of this bike is like?
#9
I have the 2007 version - good bike
#10
I'm 5'8", how do I know what size to get? Is there a size guide, because I can't find one?
#11
Not a bad price for a branded bike like some have said.

You probably won't find a better bike for this type of money.

I currently own a Dawes XC which is not a bad entry bike all though its a higher spec then this one they can be had for £300

Just a quick note about the forks, I had these on my old Aggressor 3.
They are OK forks but note they do not have lockout or rebound adjustment.

Im not too sure what you expected on this bike... To get a bike with lockout or rebound adjustment you are looking at double the price.

For the price of the bike to get branded forks is pretty good in my opinion!

The halfords bike is far superior and has the minimum spec level you need if you want to take it off road

GT are comparible to Cannondale, in a vauxhall and ford kind of way.

I'm 5'10" and ride a medium sized GT. I find that GT frames are on the larger side, so the best thing you can do is go to a bike shop and check out sizes for yourself, that way you know what size feels more comfortable for you.
#25
So buy it!!!! Ive taken a £130 mountain bike off road and still enjoyed the ride. Depends what ur doing and how aggressive you ride.

I would have no qualms buying this bike at the price as a good all-rounder. Personally I`d prob shell out £50 more if you can spare and get the Avalanche.

You are kidding right?
I own a cannondale and owned a few GT's back when they were a premium brand, but they are knocking stuff out at pennies now and the quality is not comparable to how they were back in the day. Not to say that this isn't a good bike FOR THE MONEY. You get what you pay for with anything.

I certainly wouldnt swap my cannondale for GT.

It looks a lot cooler in black.

But then you may as well shell out even more for a better Avalanche.... and the cycle (excuse the pun) continues.

If this is your budget, this is a very good bike. But like most things you get enthusiasts telling you that you need to spend more. (I know you're not really doing this but other people are). It's the same with most things though (DSLRs, Microwaves, Cars etc..) You just need to learn to tune them out and trust hands on reviews.

Not again.... Stop squabbling on this deal!! :whistling:

This isn't a "mine is better than yours forum" The bike is £179.99, its branded, the frame is alot better than the supermarkets bikes, it has branded components, and will be fine for anyone looking to try out mountain biking.

Thanks

Just ordered the Matte Black.

Big thanks!
#31
As good a bike as the average biker will need. Enough for a bit of trails, put some slicks on if you want to the occasional 40 mile weekend rides. Deal!

Not entirely true, for £100 more you could get a Giant Yukon FX3 with front fork lockout and rear shock. I bet if I could be bothered to look I could find a bike for £200 with front fork lockout and rebound adjustment. The FX3 was available from Pauls Cycles at £289.00, however it's slightly more expensive now
#33
Doesn't appear to be a good deal to be honest, for £180 it seems very basic. Fair enough it "looks" cool frame wise, but it's lacking in quite a bit. You could probably get a bike just as good as this GT Aggressor for less money too - my advice would be to pitch out an extra £30 or so and get a highly acclaimed low priced Carrera Vulcan 2007 or 2008 model.

The above website is extremely good in terms of information, reviews, products and more. If you're after a mountain bike, you're best searching the above site for comparisons and value for money.

Carrera Vulcan 2007 below, you could probably pick up the 2008 model from Halfords like I did - it was on offer for £250.

http://cdn.mos.bikeradar.com/images/bikes-and-gear/bikes/mountain/WMB76/WMB76.bt_feat.steve3-399-75.jpg

Quote from BikeRadar: "Carrera's Vulcan not only looks like a proper bike, it is a proper bike. Handling, balanced ride position and overall frame manners are great. As we've said, the fork is surprisingly good and disc brakes and fat tyres make for dependable all-weather performance. This bike could genuinely run competitively with a lot of £500 bikes, making it an absolute bargain for half that price."

LOLz ....I always thought a frame, seat, peddles, wheels and tires were the minimum spec :p

I think your missing the point...

Its very easy to say to people 'Oh just spend another £70 here and £100 there' of course you will get a better bike. But at this price point compared to a similar Apollo or other generic branding its ideal for someone starting out, not everyone needs 5000000mm of travel and disk brakes etc.

Otherwise i would've recommended the Saracen Trace 2 on Wiggle that i bought reduced from £660 to £330 will full Deore kit, hydraulic disc brakes, lockout, preload adjustment etc but to some that is probably meaningless and not needed.

This has a pretty good frame where you 'could' upgrade a few bits over time, but without upgrading it will still be perfectly fine for the occasional ride offroad and on.

Also the bike you mention (2009) is priced at over £400 on Halfords, if you got lucky on an 08' for £250 its a good price, but its not like their readily available everywhere.

The Giant looks the best bet to me, hydraulic disc brakes, decent frame, the forks are similar spec :thumbsup:

But if someone is willing to fork out £180 for an "okay" bike, then surely they'd be willing to spend an extra £50 or whatever for a much better bike with greater value for money?

I bought my Vulcan 08 about 2 months ago from Halfords, and there wasn't an 09 model in sight so I imagine some Halfords will still sell the 08s for cheap - by any means excellent value for money.

OK, i see what your saying :thumbsup:

BUT... this is a deal for a £180 bike, £250 is almost 40% more... i think anyone in their right mind would expect a better spec.

SO rather than keep arguing you could A) post the vulcan deal or B) find a suitable £180 alternative which might help people out.

Not everyone wants to ride up Everest on their bike, and some may prefer the £70 in their back pocket
