Gt la bomba 2.0

Rating:
The Good:

Solid frame, awesome tires, decent price, and decent components.

The Bad:

Basic avid brakes leave something to be desired. Crankset is not that great.

Overall Review:

First off, I bought this bike to use for cruising around town, and messing around with on jumps. I immediately put some Tioga Powerblock tires on, as they don't make as much noise cruising on pavement. The stock dirt tires are awesome though, and I kept them, in case I wanna do some dirt riding with this bike in the future.

This bike is a slopestyle bike, made to take massive abuse from huge jumps, so it is more than strong enough for my purposes. The avid elixer 1 brakes are not the best, but they work well for cruising around. I'll probably upgrade them in the future. The drivetrain is an ok spec. It works well, but I plan on upgrading to a full Shimano Zee group at some point. The Fsa crankset is the weak link. I personally have had no issues, but there have been a ton of quality problems with this crankset in the past.

The chain guide is a huge bonus. I don't really need it for what I use the bike for, but it is a good thing to have. Especially if you are doing lots of jumps. The WTB saddle is good, definitely beats the generic GT seats you get on lower priced bikes.

Overall, I love this bike. I use it for commuting, cruising, and mild freestyle, and it can take everything easily. The price is good, and the component spec is useable. I would definitely recommend this bike, because it is as versatile as they come, and is rock solid.
