mjs1231: Im not saying newer stiffer 29ers are bad, just this one. The entire line of original 29 in mtbs were way way to flexy. They had to bake for a bit, what did they findout? Wheelsets were too flexy, forks too flexy and frames too flexy.
Today they are much more stiff. My 2011 karakorum bb flexed over a full inch. That makes for a super sketchy feedback and loss of power being laid down.
Just sayn, not haten.
mjs1231: Stay away from this frame, its a pos, it has severe flex, sketchy handling, this is why people hated 29ers.

AreyouMadbor Chan: so i got my 4.0 for 6 months and so far so good. i always bike on the trail upon the hill and this bike had no problem at all. fast acceleration and light weight make me feel soooo good every time when i ride my bike! it's a really good mountain bike for a beginer and now i'm trying to upgrade to the gt zaskar :)
Jamie Yochim: If you have the leg strength to do it, it gives you a lot more rear tire grip for climbs.
george agg: karakoram 4.0 is good?
Chuck U Farlie: Who rides sitting on the seat the whole time? Just this guy.
n101513b: I have the 2011 version of this bike and agree with just about everything this guy says. A few of my components are different, but it's close enough. Turns are definitely tight at times and I think that's partially because you feel higher up on this bike than most. All-in-all, glad I picked this out as my first bike. I'm a newbie to the sport, I hit the ground all the time, and it's holding up nicely.
Hueg Morris: Love the GT's, I would prefer to buy just the frame, and build them for a specific purpos. I have 4 in my stable, all built completly diferent, Dont think there is a better mor versitile frame on the market, You can keep your Surley, GT all the way!
