GT GT Avalanche 2.0 Disc

December 31, 2014
Model/Year: 2012

Pros: Been riding it for 2-years now. Solid frame, great breaks, easy to maintain, fun ride.

Cons: Pedals seized after wet ride.

Recommendation: I'd buy it again. Great price/value. In 2 yrs, I've upgraded the pedals, hand-grips, seat, and more aggressive tires to match the terrain.

Model/Year: GT AVALANCHE 2.0

Pros: Excellent Frame, aggressive tires, affordable, a 'take you anywhere' hardtail. Excellent value, and dependable bike. Smashed more than 2000KM of hardcore technical on this bike, and will never sell it.

Cons: None really - rear deraileur is a little open, and tends to take many hits on technical trails - but never needed to replace it after easily 2000KM!

Recommendation: Amazing bike! Affordable, takes a beating and keeps on running! Buy it! It may be the last bike you ever own for cross country, some technical and everyday smashing into things.

Pros: Great components and frame for the price

Cons: Heavy, the rims got a little out of true very easily

Recommendation: I just got this bike as my first "real" mountain bike. Mine has the hydraulic disk brakes and it was only $500. Been great so far. I'm learning how to wheelie and other very beginner tricks/techniques on it and it has been great.

Pros: Really strong frame for this heavy rider.

Cons: None at this time

Recommendation: Bought this 09 back in Sept. to start losing weight....and I have. Bought it because of the strength of the Triple Triangle. Bike is probably a little heavier than some other models, but I feel (opinion) it's kind of the rider. I ride 13 mi home 2-3 per week, and have just started doing some offroad trails. Loving the bike for both. Would definately recommend this bike...especialy if strength is your priority vs. a little less weight.
