Killington had water bars, and every so often "speed bumps". A lil diagram of how the hay bales were set up.

The friend i was with runs his Maxxis minion front and high roller rear at around 25psi....he isnt to smart. But doesnt have any problems. I keep mine at around 40psi, it kinda helps like a lil rear suspension with me being on a hardtail and im not to worried their gonna pinch.

well, i am a fanboy for some of the product, rockshox being one of them. i also forgot to mention the first "upgrade" to the gt, i had them throw on top-end grip shift, cant stand the rapidfire. as for the chakra, don't know how much she costs, not worried about it yet. Give it a year.... conversly, i thought the frame looked burly, what did you see as weak points?

I only like the Boxxer, im a fox and marzocchi fanboy. U actually like the "twist" style shifter? I didnt know they still made em.
On the frame, look at where the steer tube, top tube and down tube meet. That space in the triangle reinforcer isnt what id consider strong. Also the way the shock is attached to the top tube has me worried.

But before i insalt ur fav new bike, what type of riding did u plan on doing?

Well, i would just be zoomin dh. i dont think i would want to push that thing up a hill. I flet that the "triangle" up in the front (maintube+stem+toptube) might be more rigid. Yeah, marzocchi has some ill product, for sho'. G.S. Still around: http://www.sram.com/en/srammountain/index.php (they are parent of rockshox, i believe)
