I've been away and just got back into bikes after 10 years and bought a used 2011 GT Zaskar 29" MTB (similar specs to this https://www.pinkbike.com/product/gt/2011-Zaskar-29er-Expert/).
I find that the highest gear (biggest chainring + smallest sprocket) is "too easy" on flat or on downslope.. in other words, i want to be able to go faster.
I think I may need to invest into new chainring / gearset. Question is whether this bike is a good quality bike (and given the age) that's worth sinking more money into (vs get another)?
Happy to hear opinions and advice. Thanks.
