Purpose built for riders who value speed and maneuverability, the 2014 GT Karakoram offers big-time trail performance at a consumer-friendly price. Singletrack, fireroads, maybe even a few jumps if you're feeling dangerous, the Karakoram is a well-designed hardtail that is agile in the corners, sturdy during descents, and all kinds of stable when climbing.
The Karakoram features GT's legendary Triple Triangle frame design and boasts an increase in stiffness, responsiveness, and durability. GT's use of a smaller rear triangle increases stiffness and makes for a delightfully responsive ride. Not just a clever marketing gimmick, over the years the Triple Triangle frame has become an iconic symbol of GT and a strong representation of their unwavering commitment to quality bicycle craft.
The 2014 Karakoram Elite build comes armed and ready to tame the trail. GT paired the Karakoram's hydroformed and butted Speed Metal aluminum frame with a Rock Shox XC28 TK Mg fork with 100mm of travel to tame the bumps and give you a little nudge of confidence in the burlier sections of the trail. A mix of Shimano components make for a dependable 3x9 drivetrain. A Shimano Alivo FC-M430 crank pulls a KMC X9 chain through a Shimano Deore XT Shadow (RD-M772-SGS) rear derailleur and Shimano Acera FD-M390 front derailleur. Shimano Alivo SL-M430 trigger shifters ensure that shifting is simple and efficient. All Terra disc hubs laced to Jalco XCD22 double wall rims provide excellent rolling power wrapped in 29 inches of Continental Race King rubber. Avid DB1 hydraulic brakes give you the power to stop at a moment's notice or modulate your speed on a tricky descent. GT rounds out the cockpit with an All Terra Colorado Saddle and a Kore XCD-R2 aluminum handlebar secured by an All Terra 4-bolt 3D forged stem with CNC face plate.

Comments about GT Bicycles GT Bikes Karakoram Elite Bike 2014:
she really likes riding again. The frame is really nice, classic GT style and nice components make for a great way to get into riding the trails again. Great tires and wheels and brakes. 3 X 10 shifts really smooth. The fork is nothing special but its more than enough for light trails and fire road stuff. The seat tube has bottle cage screws inside that hit the seat post when trying to lower the height so she had to cut the post a little bit to get it just right. The complete package is really great for a great price. Can't say enough about how well the bike was assembled and set up by Jenson in Riverside.
