GT Golden Marathon Bike

GT Bikes is launching a new amateur mountain biking across the country with their Golden Bike Series race. It’s not just a great way of having fun outdoors and competing with others, the fastest biker at each race gets crowned as a winner and wins one of these custom painted golden GT Zaskar or Marathon Team bikes to use at the next race. The lightest full suspension bike ever, the GT Golden Bike is completely clad in gold, has a carbon fiber monocoque frame, an XTR drivetrain with a Shadow rear derailleur and “the best components anywhere”. Too bad the GT Golden Bike will never be sold, but at least you get a chance to ride it and if good enough you’ll be surrounded by fame and beautiful girls. [via GTisGolden]
