About Hard Tail Mountain Bikes
If you are looking for a mountain bike that can comfortably negotiate bumpy, cross-country, singletracks yet still be quick and nimble on the road, then a hardtail bike is for you. Hard tail mountain bikes have front suspension, weigh less and are more pedal efficient when the terrain is smooth, than full suss bikes. A good number of single track racers still use hardtails for these reasons. At wiggle, we stock a wide variety of hardtail mountain bike brands including Felt, Focus, GT, Kona, Mongoose, Saracen and more. So if you are searching for superb, quality spec hardtail mountain bikes at great value with a legendary service to match, then you've come to the right place.
About the GT brand
GT Bikes, based in Southern California, has been in the business of making great bikes since 1972 when Gary Turner launched one of the first performance BMX race bikes.

With a BMX heritage and based in California the MTB scene was the perfect addition in the late 80’s . GT used the same model of developing performance bikes with the best riders, pioneering new suspension technology and the use of carbon fibre in MTB frames.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
I am 176cm tall with 85cm inside leg (measured using the book method).
Can you advise which size would be best for me?
I am 6ft with a 32-34 inch inside leg.
What size bike would you recommend?
Sadly the purchase of any bike can be seen as the "leap of faith" however I can say that the bikes are light weight, durable, very stiff which can have its pros and cons (this is due to the triple triangle frame system) and are also very quick due to their sporty frame style.
Overall, GT bikes are very nice and a very good quality. Recommended by all cyclist for people who are looking to start off in the sport or simply as a general bike.
I prefer a bike undersize than oversize.
Is small or medium the correct choice for this bike.
