2010 GT Power Series Ultrabox 2

Opinion-dividing carbon racer!

Love it or hate it, the Ultrabox 2 certainly has a distinctive look. This one’s an interesting bike for sure. Based on a 2010 frame, the third and final year of UB2 production, it has a real mixed bag of components. It came with a padded touring seat and assorted accessories (cyclocomputer, drinks-holder, lights and lock - all quickly removed) but also some decent race parts, some road cranks and some mtb parts! Judging by the marks on everything, the bike has been well-used, presumably on the race track, at least in the early years of its life. It then passed hands and out of the race scene, where it was used for cruising around on until the last owner decided to sell it. Which is where I stepped in!
Current plans are to break the bike down, clean it all up then take it to the track. If it’s too short and/or stiff for my liking, then I may have to have a re-think but if not, I can start to decide what parts to keep and what to swap out. Some of the mtb stuff will probably stay on there but I’m really not sure about that Rotor crankset or the Chromag bashguard! On the plus side, they’re certainly something you don’t see everyday, which I guess is in keeping with the frame! In any case, I love it! Here's a run-down of the parts, as it currently stands. All I've added so far is the Tioga seat. Enjoy!

Re: 2010 GT Power Series Ultrabox 2

Thanks guys! Took the bike out for another spin this morning and am loving how it looks:-

Have also updated the description with an initial parts list, though anticipate things are going to change fairly soon, starting with the cut-down carbon seat post that I bought online last night! By the time that arrives, hopefully I will have removed those decals (the non-og Smith and Mitas ones) and cleaned things up a little. smile

Re: 2010 GT Power Series Ultrabox 2

Went to another track on Sunday and am starting to get much more of a feel for the bike. The bottom line - I love it, which means that it's time to start swapping out some parts. big_smile

Re: 2010 GT Power Series Ultrabox 2

If so, it’s down on horsepower!! lol I could do with a stage 1 tune like on your RS! Make that a stage 3, then I might have a chance of keeping up with you! tongue
