The Good: LIGHTWEIGHT! I read 24 pounds online, feels like it. Cool frame geo, great for mannys wheelies and bunnyhops 180s etc
sealed bb airbag 2.1 tires feels just right, not too heavy
standard 25 9 t gear ratio
The Bad: front hub is unsealed
This bike is perfect considering I paid $250 plus tax (2014 came out so i scooped a 2013) It's hard to find a new bike with some sealed components and extremely lightweight for that price. good job GT. Perfect starter NICE bmx bike... (My starter bmx bike bike was/is a 2004 mongoose crush al about 32 pounds so this GT zone is a FUN bike for me to try to whip around... My only fear is the frame can't handle big drops, so I wouldn't recommend doing any serious drops but its great to learn balance, 180s, wheelies, hops, mannys all the beginner tricks. And seriously, idt 24 pounds is an exaggeration, it really is that light. lol
rear hub is semi sealed... front wheel wobbles a bit, same with rear (bike shop didn't tighten hubs enough I guess! fail on local bike shops behalf...) But easy fix if you have the right wrenches.
