Miscellaneous Big wheels and big fun, the GT Karakoram 3.0 29er hardtail mountain bike serves as a great, value-laden introduction to 29ers and their inherent fun on singletrack. Auminum frame features hydroformed top tube, seat tube and down tube to provide a strong, light and nimble ride for excellent trail handling. SR Suntour XCM-V3-MLO suspension fork features 100mm of travel with both lockout and preload adjustment to smooth out the jarring bumps and help keep the bike in control. Shimano trigger shifters and derailleurs deftly maneuver through the 24 gear combinations to get you up, over and down your favorite trails. Tektro Novela mechanical disc brakes provide comfortable braking and reliable stopping power. Maxxis Aspen tires offer a great balance between minimal rolling resistance along center tread and aggressive bite along the sides for confident cornering. Replaceable rear derailleur hanger helps extend usable life of the frame. Specs on the GT Karakoram 3.0 29er hardtail mountain bike are subject to change.
