2009 GT Force 1.0 Mountain Bike
The 2009 GT Force 1.0 Mountain Bike features the GT 6061 Monocoque aluminum frame with Independent Drivetrain suspension. Giving you a full 6 inches of travel to work with this frame will take you anywhere on the mountain. The idea with the Force frame is to be strong and stiff while saving the weight for the dumbbells in the gym. All Mountain isn't just a phrase with the Force 1.0 either, it features a Fox Float 32 R rear shock and the Fox Float RP23 fork to give you a full 6 inches of travel so you can take the proverbial bull by the horns. To match a frame so well thought out GT put Shimano XT components on this stallion. The crankset, bottom bracket, front derailleur, rear derailleur, shifters, cassette, hubs, and brakes are all Shimano XT. What isn't XT is equally as durable, Mavic/DT Swiss wheels, Ritchey handlebar/stem/steatpost, and WTB with Kenda Navegal tires round out the components for a stellar package. Put all this together and the GT Force 1.0 truly is a force to be reckoned with.
