Hey all -
I'm helping to rebuild a GT All Terra that's either a 1995, 1996 or possibly 1997 model year that uses the Groove Tube top tube. (The original model name decal is mostly scratched off but I think I can make out a "Ka" so it was probably a Karakoram from that year.) This design routes ALL 3 rear cables through the Groove Tube.
Strangely, unlike other Groove Tube model frames I've seen, this one doesn't have the integral triple cable stop at the front of the groove near the head tube; instead, there's a recessed stop for only ONE cable housing as well as two little grooves that look like perhaps the cables were intended to lay over it. Check out these pix of the bottom side of the top tube:
Apparently, there was some other widget that slipped into that single cable stop to terminate all three cable housings, but it's lost to the ages now. I'm certain that there was no bracket clamped on the top tube to receive the cables and I'd hate to have to add one, though that's certainly a Plan B.
Does anyone know anything about the design of this front triple cable stop or what model years it appeared on? Thanks in advance for any help.
