Anyone tried a GT ZR 2.0 or 3.0. I was wondering what they were like and if they are reasonably comfortable. I know they are supposed to be rigid but I don't fancy getting shaken to bits.

I am picking up a zr2.0 in 2 weeks for £859 rrp is £1500
so its a complete bargain, An english cycle mag has just
done a review on the zr3.0, the conclusion was this is an
awesome frame which needs a better groupset that 105.
Hows that

No question I would ride one if..MB1

I was still racing.
Money was an issue.
I was young.

Alum doesn't work for these old, slow bones anymore. I ride a GT Edge Ti as well as others now.

The replaceable rear der. hanger is made out of some kind of cheese, well aluminum actually. But the thing isn't heat treated very well and they bend like paper clips - I kid you not. I've worked on people's GT's and had to straighten many hangers - even new ones installed by a shop. One of the racer guys (Cat 1) that works at a LBS has one and agrees. I was considering machining some myself to solve the problem for my friends - who knows, maybe GT has fixed everything, but given their financial status I wouldn't bet on it. Caveat Emptor.

I purchased a GT ZR 2.0 about 2 months ago and I love it. I ride between 100 and 150 mi a week all in mountains basically. I hear people on here talking alot about aluminum and how unforgiving it is but i dont feel it is that way. I haven't ridden anything but alluminum since i began riding so I can't compare so take my opinioin lightly i guess.
