|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.

|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.|| |
