by from29er mt bike I baught this GT karakoram elite to up grade from my 26 avalanche 3.0.what a great bike.The 29er wheels do make a difference,as well as the hyd brakes.the bars are a odd bend and the fork could be better,but over all im really happy with the bike.I will be sticking with GT for a while.
