5/20/09, 75 degrees, Sunny and the dirt is tacky. EC, his mechanic Sniper, and my GT bicycles rep Adam Andre all hit up Blue Mountain Reservation for a shop ride. We filmed a bit of XC on XC bikes at DH speeds. The vibe was positive, the GT bikes are stellar and everyone had a killer ride!
I bounced around on the GT force bikes and was very impressed. These bikes are fast! They're also very lightweight and simply gorgeous. The craftsmanship is top shelf and the build spec is impressive. I also hopped aboard EC's Proto GT Fury. The Fury is the first production full carbon fiber DH bike (I know, I know, BCD has been building full carbon DH rigs for years). The Fury rides just as you'd expect, like a full on World Cup custom bike. The rear suspension felt, well, pretty much perfect and the bike accelerated easily. I was impressed to say the least.
Best of all was the good times had by all! We had a blast tearing around my local trails and I was proud and excited to have a world cup racer and all time legend of the sport amped on trials I built. EC even gave me props on my riding and filmed a bit with me as well!
Thanks again to Team GT for visiting my shop!
