Great bike hard seat.

PostedJune 12, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Uncomfortable
I've been riding this bike for 2 weeks now and loving it.
I mainly use my bike on the canal tow path to get to work and back which is a 12 mile round trip.
I'd say for the price range its a brilliant spec for a 29er.
The only down sides really for me is the seat is so hard, I'm used to a pretty firm seat but this hard.
The only other thing I didn't like was the Marxist Aspen tyres on the gravel tracks. I've replaced them with a set of Continental Race Kings which suit the bike perfectly.
I've not had the chance to go on a massive run yet but looking forward to it.

This is my second GT Karakoram.

PostedJune 9, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Looks great
Cons: needs a gel saddle
This is my second Karakoram (was going to be a rockhopper) after the last one went for 18 trouble free years and yes it did get raced. New Bike is light and strong, suspension compression could be a bit firmer even at max setting and quick shift works well, still bedding in the disk brakes but they seem ok. Bike needed setting up once received as Evans clearly had not touched it even though the emails said they - set it up ready for me..... overall good value for he money
