    Upgrade Help on GT Zaskar X

    Hello All,

    My ride needs some work, looking for ideas. Love to here what components you recommend!

    What I have:

    GT Zaskar X (early 2000 frame)
    Rock Shox Judy Race (Old & shot, need new one)
    XT Components (with the exception of the brakes & front derail)
    Mavic Wheels (no disc on hubs)

    What I think I need to do:

    1. New fork it's terrible (thinking about Fox Float of sorts)
    2. New Wheels (so I can mount disc - solid black)
    3. New Brakes (Upgrade to disc)
    4. Bottom Bracket

    If you have any ideas I'm all ears. I'm looking to keep this one and buy a second for guest riders as well as give me an alternate ride (full sus maybe)

    That frame is I think the exact twin of my 1995 GT Rebound (retired now as a trainer bike). If you love the bike then upgrade but all the money you will sink into it will cover the cost of a much newer new or used bike. I picked up my wife's new 2011 (in 2011) Specialized disc @ our local bike shop for under 500.00. Just a thought.
    I'm thinking about shreddin' it up right now!

    Yeah I may just look for some deals on used parts and fix it up as a guest rider. Then just buy me a newer ride. If anybodys parting a decent Fork, Wheels, disc brakes, etc lemme know.

    Also anybody know what size bottom bracket I need for this dude?

    Small BB shell so I am thinking maybe a 68mm? Try a Google search on the bike specs for that year and you may find the exact answer but I'm leaning towards 68mm.
