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. Developing world class bikes in conjunction with the world’s best BMX rider such as Greg Hill, Eddie Fiola, Clive Gosling and Dave Mirra, GT grew into one of the biggest brands. 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.

Hans “No Way” Ray has been one of the figurehead of GT’s longstanding team rider program, setting the record for longest sponsorship deal of 26 (?) years and counting. It hasn’t always been about dirt, in the mid 90’s GT took there carbon technology and build track bikes for the USA Olympic team, the bike was later banned for being too fast. GT latest crop of Enduroad Grade models play perfect testament to the brands heritage across, dirt, road and track.

So out of Small Medium Large and Extra Large which would I be best suited, I have not bought a bike in years, hence the question.
I RIDE A SMALL Avalanche 3.0 2012.
I COULD HAVE GONE FOR THE MEDIUM BUT SMALL IS MORE RESPONSIVE, ALL I HAVE DONE IS TO INSTALL A LONGER STEM AND BETTER SADDLE.
I RIDE A SMALL Avalanche 3.0 2012.
I COULD HAVE GONE FOR THE MEDIUM BUT SMALL IS MORE RESPONSIVE, ALL I HAVE DONE IS TO INSTALL A LONGER STEM AND UPGRADED THE SADDLE.
ABOUT 13.9 KG WITH SADDLE AND TYRES.
I'm looking to purchase a new bike after my last one was stolen. I want to fit a GPS tracker to my new bike.
Will this tracker fit?
The following is the fitment requirements:
The tracker is 23.5mm diameter and 110 mm in length
Length. Check that the Spybike tracker is likely to fit into your steerer tube
1) If you have a carbon fibre bicycle or a bicycle with an expanding headset plug,
then remove this and insert the tracker. This will tell you if it fits straight away
2) If you have a steel or aluminium steerer tube then first check the length of the tube.
It should be a minimum of 250mm in length. Most steerer tubes are butted at the
bottom (they have thicker walls at the bottom). We need to ensure there is enough
room for the tracker without it getting stuck in the steerer tube.
If the tracker fits then i will purchase this bike.
