GT Timberline 1 29er 2014 -
With a superior combination of the lightweight aluminium frame and replaceable drops, you can be sure that whether youre dodging traffic or giving it hell in the dirt, your GT Timberline will be ready to take it. The Timberline features a lightweight alloy Triple Triangle frame (6061-T6) and was originally developed to extend the frame life, stiffen the rear triangle and thus create a faster, more responsive ride, the Triple Triangle frame has transcended its role as just another tech story and become an iconic symbol of who GT are and what they stand for.
The Timberline comes fitted with a pair of SR Suntour 80mm travel forks and will soak up the lumps, bumps, roots and pot-holes you will come across on your daily travels. Promax mechanical disc brakes give impressive stopping power in wet and dry conditions with the pads clamping around 160mm rotors. This gives you the confidence in knowing that you will stop when you need to.
The gearing is taken care of thanks to a mixture of Shimano and Microshift components. Thanks to the triple chainset (42x34x24), and the 8 speed rear cassette, you have 24 gears to play with so finding the right should not be a problem. Climb the toughest of hills, and hurtle down the descents and along the flats - with 24 gears you can.
The 29" wheel has established itself as the most popular MTB wheel size for good reason. The benefits are simple to understand. A bigger wheel rolls over bumps better than a smaller wheel: this increases control, builds confidence, maintains momentum and makes you faster. The big wheels also provide extra traction in corners and off cambers as more rubber is in touch with the ground.
Frame heights are generally the same as the standover height so the bikes dont feel bigger to ride. From a handling perspective the geometry of a 29er bike differs from a 26 with the chainset positioned noticeably lower than the centre of the wheel hubs, this provides a sensation of sitting in the bike, not on top of the bike, creating extra traction in faster corners and solid boost of confidence.
Ridden by Race Whippets and Weekend Warriors alike, trail bikes balance strength and durability with light weight and reliability, so they are equally at home on the singletrack, the sprint for the finish line or a Sunday thrash with your friends.
Each Timberline is fully built, tested and tuned by Wiggle's team of qualified bike mechanics to ensure you're bike arrives in perfect condition. To find out which size fits you use the size chart below.
