GT 2009 ZASKAR EXPERT

I purchased a new bike on Saturday, went a little over budget so I walked into the city (8km), picked it up and was riding home and I got a bloody nail through the tyre, so another 4 km walking 🙁

So far, I like it. It is very responsive, easy to accelerate.
My goal with the bike is to lose 20kg over the Australian summer and build a good physical base.

Marketing Drivel:

This bike screams “big fun” to XC hardcore racers. Hydroformed Kinesis aluminum frame with a stiff rear triangle excels at fast, technical hill climbs while remaining extremely lightweight and responsive – perfect for YOUR next XC race.

  • Hydroformed Kinesis Superlight custom aluminum tubeset delivers nearly “weightless” performance and is highly responsive on technical climbs
  • Rock Shox Recon Race fork with 100mm of travel gives you smooth, predictable and reliable bump absorption over uneven terrain
  • Shimano SLX 27-speed drivetrain with triple cranks provide sharp, powerful shifts and include plenty of gears for the hills and flats
  • Shimano SLX triggers offer fast and quick shifting action
  • Ritchey aluminum handlebar, stem and seatpost for core-level strength, style and performance
  • Shimano SLX hydraulic disc brakes supply rapid and controlled stopping power in any condition
  • Crank Brothers Candy C pedals add stability and easy in/easy out convenience
  • Lightweight and low rolling Kenda Karma tires combined with Mavic Crossride Center-Lock Disc wheels deliver tough and predictable handling on your favorite XC trails
