I came across this bike, the GT Gutterball, while grabbing some more not-so-thorn-resistant tubes at my local (mostly mountain) bike shop. The entire staff was stoked that someone was actually interested in one of their non-mountain bike models. They made me take it for a spin—riding fixed takes some getting used to for sure. I almost got bucked! And then they offered me a hefty discount. I was seriously tempted—then I went on a ride on the Sirrus with Upto12 in Yosemite last week and was definitely grateful for the gears.
It's a beautiful bike—whaddya think?
