 this frame is INDESTRUCTABLE, period. Changed all other components on my 2.0 though. I wouldn't recommend the RST forks I got on it.

But then again, the frame is worth every penny of even the purchase price of a fully built bike. I have been thrashing mine for over six years in urban and off road environments, cleared 5 meter gaps, cleared 2.5 meter stairs and landed to flat and this frame doesn't complain the tiniest bit. Couldn't say the same about the wheels though lol. I wrecked a lot of those xD

And to top it off, it's the sexiest design that stayed the same for decades, without losing it's touch!

GT 2011 Avalanche 1.0 Disc (MSRP $1039) — The hard-tail that all others are measured by. When you're ready to graduate from that first rig you bought - the one they told you was capable of being ridden off-road, but which was really ready for campus cruising - the Avalanche is without question the bike you want. More than just a bike which you can ride about town, the Avalanche is also equipped for gnarly trails and sublime single track. With lightweight, triple-triangle aluminum frames, trail-ready component specs, and front suspension, the Avalanche is chomping at the bit to earn its wings. Are you?
