GT Karakoram, Hans Rey, 29'er Mountain Bike, Excellent Condition
This Mountain bike has never been used on any mountain bike trails. It was used on a dirt road once. The owner was injured from another sport and has been unable to ride this bike. All manuals are included. The write up on this bike explains, that it is a extremely limited edition and is spec’d with excellent components and a custom paint job. Hans Rey’s famed insight lifts this 29’er hard tail above all others and it’s sure to deliver an outstanding overall ride quality. The hydro formed triple triangle aluminum frame has transcended it’s role as just another tech story and is identified industry wide and an icon of GT. The triple triangle specifically stiffens the rear triangle which creates a faster, more responsive ride that can keep you moving forward even while taking a beating from the trail. The rock Shox XC28 TK fork has a cross country friendly 100 mm of travel. It’s Hydraulically damped, with magnesium lowers and chrome steel uppers. It features a handy turn key lockout for long climbs and a rebound adjust for when the going gets rough. A 24 speed Shimano drive train gives you plenty of versatility and the Deore XT Shadow rear derailleur is proven to supply exquisite shifts every time. Alivio Rapid-Fire shifters respond well in and out of single-track. Shimano BRM395 hydraulic brakes with 160 mm rotors provide firm stopping power even in less than ideal weather conditions. Burley Kenda Honey Badger tires are fitted to Jalco double-wall rims for maximum grab, dig and go. However, the 2.2 width is narrow enough to cut down on unwanted rolling resistance. Crank Brothers Cobalt series components were chosen by Hans because they offer the greatest balance of low weight to durability. Cobalt 1 riser has a 15mm rise and a 700 mm width in order to navigate tree-crowded single track effectively. The GT Karakoram Hans Rey Limited Edition Mountain bike is superb and features top notch Shimano and Crank Brothers components. Only a limited number are available worldwide. Local Pick up only. Thanks for looking.
