Expirience with the GT Avalanche Sport 29

GT Avalanche Sport 29 Review When it comes to riding on long tours, the Avalanche Sport 29 feels really good. The moderate 67,5 degree head tube angle ensures a balanced handling. The seating position of the in light terrain moves in a moderate range between sporty and comfortable. A good argument for the Racebike of GT: Such a successful geometry is usually only available if you have deep pockets. We like: 25 years warranty on the frame!
