I picked up this bike with a few basic needs wanted I.e Two wheels, Two pedals and a steering device (that was my bike knowledge)... I thought all bikes were made of the same shit, wtf is a crank and wheels have walls??

BUT!! After spending some time on these forums I'm actually really happy with what I ended up with. Helps that I got the bike for an absolute bargain also. I know it's nothing special. But I thought I'd put her up on here as there's not many other GT's on here.

I'm trying to stick to the "If it aint broke, don't replace it."

But man I hate the dam seat. Seriously what were they thinking? Why not just a plaIn black seat

i hate seat post combos. they have a funny shape. i also hate patterns. look into a shadow slim or fat seat, FBM Heart seat(like my bike. check out my bike check) or a fiend seat.
