    1990 Karakoram K2

    Hi,
    Getting ready to maybe purchase '90 Karakoram K2, what does the k2 mean? How are k2's different than normal Karakorams.

    thanks,

    Rob

    Back in the day...GT had both a Karakoram and Karakoram K2 in the line....If I remember right the Karakoram having Shimano drivetrian while the K2 was Suntour equipped. There was alss a Karakoram Elite model offered fat one time. I have an 88 Karakoram K2 that has Suntour XC-D and Dia Compe components.
    Needed: 26.8mm XTR seatpost, blue GT/Grundig Jersey.
