    “Fury? No anger here... Just pleasure.”

    The Good:

    How about.... everything?!?!

    The Bad:

    Without regular, meticulous maintenance, she becomes a whiny broad... But a little regular TLC goes a long way.

    Overall Review:

    Let's start with the construction -- yes, it's upkeep. Duh. Carbon is notoriously light and nimble, but crack that shit, unravel the thread and say goodbye to your baby. However, she's a beast. No, seriously. Folks may judge her as 'bulky' or 'built out', but this lady will lay down and yank back up faster than you can say "Oh, no she dii'nt." As long as YOUR game is in the right spot and you have your bike control on lock, you'll love the GT Carbon Fury. There's a reason the Athertons came over to the darkside, and this is that reason. If you're long in the torso and need some serious pedaling efficiency, this is steed for you. As an proportionally Read More »

As an proportionally retarded she-wolf, I appreciate the speed and response the Fury provides, especially tucked low in the cockpit through a tough, technical, peddally race course.

    Shall we discuss jumping now? I think we should. First of all, the things this bike does to your body (in a good way, I mean) would shock even Jenna Jameson, the queen of moves. Stability and strength are two of her superpowers, but only two among many. Lightweight and maneuverable, coming out of a whip or even a 'whoops-was-that-a-shitty-lip' is made easier by her construction. Hands down, the best bike I've ever ridden. Slap on the right components and you'll be happier than a pig in shit.
