    2001 Zaskar Team HT revived into the form of a SS rigid

    So a few months ago I made the decision to strip down my old GT and started selling it off piece by piece since I no longer rode it. Got a decent price for most of the parts until it came to the frame. I figured that for me to give up this sweet frame it would take at least a few hundred to make me happy about seeing it go. This way, I would feel like it went to a home where it was appreciated. No bites except for a few low ball offers after the auction ended for $100, $150, etc. I figured screw it, I'm gonna hang it on my garage wall so I can look at it as artwork while I work on my other bikes and/or just hang out.

    A few months go by and the SS urge hits me. Hmm, Do I build a new bike or do I revive that beautiful frame on my wall? The result....

    Looks nice, man! I am in the process of building my 2000 iDrive up as a SS. I'll have to post up pics when it is done!

    Very nice work. I've always been a fan of the 2001 Team frames. At one time I had the road, I-drive, and Zaskar frames sitting in my garage. Loved all 3.
    2009 GT Marathon Team,GT Force 2.0, GT Jelly Belly TT (nude carbon), and a very special Todd Wells Zaskar.

    Thanks guys! I'm pretty stoked it worked out that I didn't sell the frame. It always was a fun bike to ride, but is even more so now.

    Can't wait to see your iDrive built up SS LilJr!
