 After trading in the mx bike I decided to get a mountain bike. I wanted something that was good for down hill and free ride while being able to be ridden up hill with no problems. Really happy with the bike so far. Lock out front and rear, quick adjustable seat. Reasonably cheap buy price.

 I JUST GOT MY 2012 DISTORTION ABOUT 2 WEEKS AGO. BY FAR THE FUNNEST BIKE I HAVE RIDDEN TO DATE. CLIMBS GREAT AND THE ANGLES ARE WHAT I CONSIDER PERFECT FOR A TRAIL BIKE, OR MINI ENDURO WHICH IS WHAT I CALL IT. OUT OF THE SADDLE PEDALING IS UNBEATABLE. AWESOME BIKE FOR SURE.

GT 2011 Distortion 2.0 - Gray (MSRP $2999) — Two years ago, Andrew Cho and TMC challenged us to make a free-ride rig that could be pedaled with the ease of an aggressive trail bike. They ask; we deliver. The most versatile gravity bike we make, the Distortion takes jumpable geometry, adds just enough travel to soften the blow, and puts it in a sleek, lightweight, easy to ride package. Some team riders call it a short travel Free-ride bike; others an East Coast free-ride bike. What it's called is irrelevant. The fact that it's just as comfortable at Crankworx as it is at Diablo, & bombing jumps as it is to ripping lines - is.
