GT Karakoram Mountain Bike
The 2016 edition of the GT Karakoram mountain bike ensures each of your outings into the woods are fun-filled, off-road endeavors. The Karakorum features massive momentum gathering and obstacle crushing 29" wheels, a Shimano 3x9-speed drivetrain, plus a SR Suntour suspension fork with 100mm of cross country trail-eating travel.

The Karakorum is designed with hydroformed aluminum and a Triple Triangle reinforced frame. The Triple Triangle adds beefy support against trail impact and improves handling. The SR Suntour suspension fork offers a mechanical fork lockout for climbing or riding on even surfaces, as well as 100mm of travel. The frame and fork are equipped with Promax hydraulic disc brakes and a set of 160mm rotors for exemplary all-condition stopping power.

The Karakoram is equipped with a Shimano 3x9-speed Altus/Alivio drivetrain with an Alivio 9-speed rear derailleur. Rapid Fire shifters effortlessly click and push the chain up and down the 11-34T Sunrace 9-speed cassette which provides gear ratios to handle a wide variety of challenging terrain. Stout All Terra DC20 29er wheels with All-Terra Cypher 2.2" wide tires offer great traction out on the trails. Additionally, an alloy 15mm riser bar with a 710mm width puts you in a comfortable, upright position for greater control and comfort.

Comments about GT BICYCLES GT Karakoram Mountain Bike:

This bike is great for those who want a trail bike. I totally recommend it! It is capable and agile for a 29ers. It has a slack head angle, low bottom bracket and short chainstays. The components work well and are durable but really heavy. Saddle is comfortable too. Total bike weight is 32.8 pounds.

The All Terra Cypher tires are actually really good. I was shocked. Don't replace them right away. They roll fast, have good cornering and off camber grip. I run them both at 28 psi with tubes and still have not gotten any flats.

The Shimano Alivio Shadow rear mech is great with crisp, accurate shifting. It would be better with a clutch since chain slap is pretty noticeable. Get a chain stay protector right away. The Altus front mech is awesome really. No issues there, the Altus Shifters are decent. I wish the "clicking" was "tighter" if that makes sense, but it does a nice job nonetheless.

The wheelset is really heavy, the hubs are ridiculously heavy. The QR skewers are cheap plastic. The grips and pedal are atrocious. The handlebars and stem are unbranded with no markings are also heavy. The lockout fork is very flexy and noisy and just plain sucks. But I was expecting that at this price point. I wish this frame came with a tapered headtube, but it does not and still uses a straight 1 1/8th steerer tube.

This is a perfect bike for those who want to tinker and replace/upgrade components overtime. I wanted a hardtail 29er trail bike that I could upgrade as my skills progress. I ride aggressive and this bike fits the bill perfectly.
