2011 GT Steed

Top of the range, pro level GT Dirt jumping bike

I got back into freestyle after 10 years of not riding mid last year.  When I was looking for a new school bike I wanted something that is a bit of an all rounder.  I remembered the GT fuelers from the ninties and started looking for one of those and found out that there is a model above the fueler called the Steed.  I found one for sale at a good price and bought it.  It is a very light bike and rides great.  The frame is 100% Sanko Cromoly and the forks and bars are heat treated.  It came with pretty good parts for a complete but I have upgraded a lot of them anyway.  As I understand it these are notavailable on the US market, which is a shame because GT  still has some awesome bikes, like this one, and should be pushing them to rebuild their name a bit.  Anyway leave any questions you have below and I'll fill you in as much as I can.

Yeah, lots of people don't even look at it because it'a a GT, but it is light and strong.  It's an awesome frame

Re: 2011 GT Steed

saw 2010 at a nearby gt dealer -said they never went into production here. had it hanging from the ceiling on display supposedly was at a new york bike show for dealers and was offered up. probably the $1500. price tag is why it didnt make it to the public
