    Summary

    Expirience with the GT Avalanche Elite 29

    GT Avalanche Elite 29 Review You love to ride your bike in light terrain? Then the GT Hardtail and you could become friends. You have no idea if you prefer high speed stability or playful handling? Then you can´t go wrong with the GT Hardtail. It´s handling is pleasantly balanced. When sitting in the saddle, the posture is neither overly sporty, nor uber-comfortable. This should make the GT Hardtail suite the taste of most bikers. On climbs, other bikes in the under 1500 Euro present a little better performance than the Racebike of GT. One should not forget: the geometry is the heart of a mountain bike. For 1099 Euro, GT provides more than the competitors in the same price range. With 25 years the warranty is another neat feature.
