GT Tachyon 2.0 Bike - 2012 Closeoutis rated5.0out of5by2.
Rated5out of5byfromGT Tachyon 2.0Good all around bike. Mostly use for training runs. Good for short 20 mi. or mid 50-60 mi. runs @13-17 mph have not done anything longer than that.Handles real nice. Responsive. Had it up to about 30mph no shake or anything, felt firm and tight. Got a 20dg offset seat post, (i'm used to a road bike) needed to be back a little now its perfect. Had a little rub on the fr derailleur when i was in the middle gears of the sprocket. Small adj. made problem fixed. Once you get the bugs worked out, and these are minor little things that probably wouldn't bother anybody else but me. This bike is perfect as i ride it right now. And was perfect when i picked it up, a real pleasure to ride.

Rated5out of5byfromthis is the oneI use this in place of my road bike, needed something a little more upright but still had performance. This is the bike you are looking for, it's light, fast responsive. Good for the short (8-10 mi)or longer (50-80 mi)rides. Shifts quickly and quietly, the only thing is when your on the lg fr the middle gears tend to rub on the fr derailer. trying to fine tune it, still not a biggie i dont really use the middle gears alot. tend to stay on the big 50t fr gear and 24-27on the rear. All in all i really enjoy this bike. I might retire my road bike.
