    Can anyone share their actual frame weight of their 2012 Ti Xizang? I'm hoping a size medium will be less than 4lbs ( for frame and dropout only ).

    It will be less that four, there's no way that head tube and disc tabs add 11 oz. Maybe six or seven tops. The originals from the 90-99 era in a 16" were ~3lb 4oz.
    Needed: 26.8mm XTR seatpost, blue GT/Grundig Jersey.

    Reason why I am interested in the Xizang 29er is that I recently bought a Lynskey M390 frame (size medium) and just found out it weighs 4 pounds 5 ounces (1.96 Kg). I'm not to happy with that number... The Xizang is roughly the same price and arguably even better looking.. So I might switch. Now the next part is finding a medium sized Xizang in stock and available for delivery.

    Call GT's customer service and ask them they should be able to get you an answer. They have Excel charts with all the info on it per size, Shows every measurement on the frame. I know I have received them before just for asking the right people. Best of luck.

    As i originally thought. Use your search engine bro 1720 grams for a medium...that's 3.7919509095799 lbs. Not even close to that tanky 4.5 Lynskey anchor.

    Thanks.. I did a search, but that PDF file you shared comes up flagged by my McAffee Antivirus. I try not to view files that are flagged as "suspicious" by my Anti Virus.

    I live in the Philippines.

    Again thanks for pointing me to right direction. I am definitely going to switch to the Xizang as soon as I can find one. I've had my Lynskey frame for 3 months and haven't built it up because of so many second thoughts.. I've been riding my Avalanche almost daily and love it so much. And there's some magic with GT's Triple Triangle design that say's "Cool" to me even more than any other manufacturer.

    Not the answer i was looking for, haha. Thank you for the reply. Very aggravating that they are not bringing them into the US. Why are they shoving this 29er crap down our throats anyway. Plenty of riders still wanting 26.

    Maybe they want them but they aren't buying them. 26 hardtails are a difficult sell right now

    If you saw the industry numbers of highend 26" hardtail sales, many of you guys would be sad pandas. It's like vinyl, maybe it's the format for the aficionados but it was usurped by CD (29"), and soon to be overpowered by digital (650B).

    With that said, GT did ship a grip of the 26" Xizangs, mainly to Asia/Pacifc markets of Japan, Korea, Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, & Thailand. Some also were shipped to EU countries, but many of those orders were switch over to 9Rs as the market moved rapidly to embrace bigger wheels on the continent.

    htats what i was told, but when I asked the local rep, he said there were none in asia... its like nobody had any... and so far, seen a few 29ers on the net, but apart from that UK mag that had a 26er as a test bike, not one other 26er, you'd think one would turn up somewhere if not for sale, then at least that had been bought and built up, its been like a year since they came out...

    Novel idea.Stop showing people things they cant buy just to get the hype train rolling for the new bikes.That way,people don't waste two years hunting things down they will never be able to buy and move on.

    Good in Japanese?

    Well, I'm not sure if this help you (OZ is closer to Japan than Denver...) but these 4 guys have been riding 26-er since May. Riteway is GT's distribution I guess.

    GT 2012 Product Japan

    Isn't it funny Japan gets both 26 and 29er?

    Click around, you will find shops. They are usually ok with English unless you start biachoing about small things, then you maybe out 3,000 bucks

    I contacted an official GT distributor/retailer here in the Philippines. They said they have a 2012 GT Xizang 26er in medium in stock.. I will try to visit next week to get a picture to see if the unicorn does exist.

    Telephone: +63-2-735-7111

    Best way to contact them is thru Facebook.
    Just do a Facebook search for: Cycle Art Quiapo Philippines

    They are a legitamate Distributor/Retailer of GT bicycles in the Philippines.
    I can highly recommend this shop. Try to contact and deal directly with Maam Arlene. She is the owner and a good person. Your problem may be shipping out of the Philippines.

    Have you bought anything from them?If so,how did you pay for it?I cant find a site other than their facebook page.
    Anyways,they say they can get me one in 16.5.There are some "red flags" i have.A.They never say GT xizang in their response.It's xizang built bike.B.The price and shipping quote is a really good deal.(almost to good to be true).C.The Philappines is the world capital for GT fakes.Almost all of the GT fakes Ive seen in the past few years have come from there.
    I have sent a e mail to GT,posted on their facebook page,and PMed Jason over at the fanclub page to see if it is a legit source.Expect to get blown off by GT,so Ill see what Jason says.
    If I can get a REAL xizang at that price,Im in.

    I bought my 2 GT Avalanches from Cycle Art a year and a half ago. They don't specialize on online sales. They dont have a website. And they are an established Bicycle Store in the middle of the grey market capital of the Philippines = Quiapo. But I physically go to their store and I deal directly with Maam Arlene. She takes very good care of me. I always ask her "is this fake" before I buy anything. She always gives me a truthful answer. Their store sells some fake stuff to market to the people who can't afford real branded goods. For the 2 cents its worth, I found out that Maam Arlene coincidentally goes to the same Christian Church I go to 2 months AFTER I bought my pair of bikes. So we have an even better working relationship and trust now.

    Yes its true the Philippines has tons of fake GTs and other brands. So its very important to be cautious.

    How much did they quote you for the Xizang?

    $1,866.25 for the frame and (est.) $71.78 for shipping. Don't take any of this as a insult to either you or Cycle art.GT has blown me off on all three fronts(like I knew they would.But don't worry,there is a new picture of a bike for everyone to "like").Jason has sent a message to the market dept. So if it checks out that they can get and sell me a REAL GT xizang,Im all over it.Again,they never say GT xizang in their response.As bad as I want this,Im not going to give my cc numbers to just anyone.If I end up with a box of bricks,Im out 2k.

    The price sounds about right.. But I agree transparency is very important in online negotiations. They should be able to provide you a complete and clear description of the goods they want to sell.

    By the way.. What city/country are you from? $71 dollars for shipping out a frame from the Philippines sounds too cheap.

    Olympia,Washington USA.And Im sure that est.shipping would be more when it's all said and done.It was $95.00 to ship a bmx bike here from the UK.You are right on the description.That's a big loophole leaving out the GT brand.

    thing that gets me, say this is a real bike, and lets just assume you can comfortably afford it. To me this is where GT USA go, cool you want that, they have it, they get the Philappines dealer to go pick it up, ship it back to the US and then sell it to you, and charge you for the trouble on top of the frame. I mean thats how I expect international compnies to operate. If you don't mind paying for it, we'll get it to you.

    I wonder how many of these they actually made? I wonder how many 29ers as well? it doesn't seem a lot (not that that means anything, could be 100 or 1000)

    Turns out that GT has never heard of these guy's and cannot in good conscience recommend I deal with them .

    Bummer... But I must agree with GT. Keep your money safe. International orders are an easy way to throw away hard earned dollars.

    In CycleArt's defense, I was able to get a pair of great Avalanche 1.0's at a bargain (clearance of old stock). But I went to the store myself and dictated the bikes I wanted then saw them unboxed and assembled myself. My bikes are legit.

    I paid in cash (Philipppine peso) to lock in the lowest discount.



    In the end I got both bikes for less than $1000 USD.

    I'm from the Philippines and I've never heard of Faren. But then again Faren could just be the business name of an office.. And not have a retail outlet or show room for the public to access.

    Could you please check the official distributor in Singapore? I have a friend who lives there and I hope I can get a Xizang from Singapore. Buying from Singapore is usually very safe. They've got seriously strict laws for crime and fraud.

    Would have been nice if they had of done it like Ritchey did with the P-Team, they weren't going to bring any in to the US, but when people asked after them, they did bring in a limited amount.

    There are what, 4 people in this thread who would have bought one, I don't know what the production run was (29 and 26) and if there are 4 then there is probably more. Maybe they just got worried aftert hezaskar reissue didn't sell straight away, but then it was the same old story, I wanted one, couldn't buy one retail, just pure luck I stumbled onto wiggle that had them on sale.
    I mean I had the cash in had to buy one, but just gave up and bought an old one.
    All the gear and no idea.

    I asked him about it twice on twitter and he gave me the GT blowoff.It's been nothing but one nightmare after another over the last three years trying to buy ANYTHING from GT.Every e mail,tweet,and facebook post I have sent their way has been blatantly ignored and typed around.
    Seriously,this stupidity only keeps going as long as I keep coming back for it.
    Ignore them till they go away.It's corporate policy.

    Looking for a Real XiZang?

    I have a 96 XiZang I think I'm going to sell. 18" frame. Excellent ride! I always told myself I'd keep for the rest of my life, but I just don't ride as much anymore, and I think she'd rather be out on the trail than hanging in my garage. Other than the "Xi" sticker missing on one side of the bike (Damn moving company!), she's in beautiful shape.

    I've not seen any posted prices on sold XiZang frames. This one is legendary. Serial number is GTX9690. Anyone got a suggestion on a price range I should be asking?

    I would like to buy your xizang. What price did you had in mind? The whole bike or just frame?

    the frames normally sell on ebay for around the $US1000. Depending on how many are about at the time, a little more or a little less.

    anf you would be better off breaking up and selling the parts, xtr full bikes seem to sell for around the $15-1700 mark.

    what, so basically, someone ordered a 29er and GT sent a 26er by mistake and this guy picked it up? Maybe we should all go out an order one and see what turns up...

    Unless your name is Rachel,I don't think we are talking about the same thread.
    The one Im talking about is on the GT bicycles fanclub facebook page.Where's yours?

    yeah...but i think i'm talking about the guy who replied to the pic of the 96 xizang, where the guy from the gt facbook apge then took that pic and made a whole new facebook post...

    can we link fb pages?

    Ah,I should have scrolled down farther.In the end,everyone bailed when the questions were asked.Nothing was handled,and it was all buried with twice the normal amount of pictures.After lurking that guy's page,it looks like a 26".The cranks and disc don't have that dwarfed by the wheels look and the forks look short.
    Even if it is one,it isnt going to help us any.It's the only one on the net.I have GT reps telling me three different storys,and this just means one is lying to me.
    Ive been tearing up the net for three years trying to buy one of these things and this guy just "Forus Gumps"into one?
    Oh well.Sadly it's just another reminder of what a joke GT's retail system is.

    I'm sitting at the factory right now that did these bikes. I just doubled checked the qtys shipped of 26" Xizang for 2012 & 2013, and while the number was less than we had expected due to global shift to 9R wheels, there were quite certainly many, many X more than "one on the net" made. These were mostly shipped to Asian markets. I personally reached out to our Asian-Pacific regional sales manager to pass along your email address & contact info to distributors to see if they could help get you a frame. I even personally emailed one particular distributor with the info.

    While the world is a lot smaller due to the internets, it's still a big place and moving products from one market to the other isn't as easy at it seems at face value sometimes.

    I'd like to get an Audi S4 Avant in the US. Unfortunately Audi USA doesn't bring them into the country.

    Nobody is mad at you ska todd.You didnt say you could get me one.
    After three years of looking for one of these,one pops up on facebook and nobody even bats a eye.Nobody even asks the obvious.When I finaly do,Poof everyone fades and it's buried.
    The major rub I and several people have is if these are real,why can't GT hook me up with the people who have them?I am more than willing to pay for the frame plus shipping to the US.I have had every e mail,tweet,and facebook post totaly blown off by GT going on three years now.It's almost like if somebody sold me one of these the world would come to a end.

    HEY LOOK, i UNDERSTAND THAT 29ER ARE THE NEW BIG THINg (sorry caps), but it would be nice if the cycling industry as a whole, not just GT, realised that its not just europe or asia that might have people that still like 26ers.
    Your S4 analogy is not right, you can still buy an S4 somewhere in the world, like Germany and put it in a container and have it shipped over, sure you might not be legally aloud to drive it (not sure on the reg in the USA), but you can still own one.
    If you look at how Ritchey handled the P-29, P-Team thing, that was really good.
    I'm not doubting that they were made, it is jsut really weird how this cool and expensive and rare bike, just seems to have vanished. None for sale, no one is posting that they have one, except the 2 instances and and dealers don't seem to know where any are.

    If they all turn up on wiggle like the zaskar reissue did, I will not be happy. As I gave up and spent my spare cash on getting a 2nd had 1996 version. Cost me $900 to get it to my door in Australia if that helps explain how much I wanted one.

    And apart form the demo one for the UK magazine, the only other one around seems to have been accidently shipped.

    So maybe next time you guys do something liek this, maybe make a coupel of extra ones to keep at HQ so that when there are people asking where can I get one, you can ship it out to wherever it needs to go.

    You could but by the time you"smoged"it,it really wouldn't be worth it.

    Anyways,my calafia came frome the UK,so buying GT's from other country's isn't new to me.

    Oh well.This went nowhere.In light of begging this company to sell me anything let alone this for over four years,it's time to get over it and find a company that actually wants to sell me something.Im just wasting time with this company.
    Best to everyone.

    Im really the only person who sees how ridiculous this is?ANY OTHER bike company would sell you anything they make.If you want high end GT,it's off to sketchy over seas sites,and GT will not help you in any way.
    All those people on facebook getting excited about finding WAY over priced jerseys on Soviet sites ect. and getting excited.Check yourself.Any other company would love to have you as a rolling billboard and sell all their swag right off their site,or at all the major sites.Er uh...
    I mean everything is fine because three people race down hills weelly weelly fast and America is A#1 with GT...............Yeah,that's it.Just put your head back in the sand.

    Your not the only one, oh well it made me buy an old xizang and maybe thats a good thing, cause it's awesome! Better than my zaskar reissue, so who knows if this new one is any good... we'll never know.

    And yeah, spend some of that cash on an XC team, grrr

    I asked if they had anymore,and unfortunately I snagged the only one they had.(if they had more I would have sent out pm's to everyone I know looking for one)I don't want to post a link to this place on here because we all know GT will send the flying monkey lawer's squad over to torch the place and make sure this never happends again.PM sent.Might get more,who knows.

    Is it medium sized frame? I have to say it looks more balanced than 29er, but still looks a little funky in a good way. Glad you got one.

    Few Q's on this frame. Firstly, rear drop outs. Can they be converted to X12?

    Secondly, what is the seat tube diameter?

    Finally, what BB does it take?

    Good thing they changed the finish, that high polish on the 2012-2013 models is a nightmare to maintain.

    I prefer the old high polished Ti frames. I can imagine they would be very difficult to maintain. But I'm not one who would bother. I enjoy seeing battle scars on my bike. My only concerns would be death wounds like frame bends, cracks and punctures.

    Note: I ride a industrial mill finished Ti Lynskey. I would love to own a fully polished version, but the additional cost was an additional $2000!

    Yay!!! Just got confirmation that my 2014 Medium 26" Xizang is in stock and being shipped to me from Osaka. I had a look at the 2015 Cat. from GT/Rightway, and it looks like the Xizang is cancelled since everything is now 27.5". Not 100% sure, but it looks that way.

    I live in Japan now, but I'm from the US and will be moving back within a year or two or three.

    Blog Hogs, You won't have the only one in the US shortly... :-)

    Well my frame has shipped via Kuroneko and will arrive this Wednesday. Yay!! Now it's time to order a bunch of Chris King parts and get a drivetrain.

    I've heard bad things about using Ti headset on Ti frame. Any comments on that? I've also got a Zaskar frame to build, so I was thinking about getting a Chris King Ti nothreadset and a "standard" Chris King tapered headset, then using the 1 1/8" Ti parts on the top of the Xizang, and the Aluminium on the bottom. The Zaskar would then only have a Ti lower, since Chris King doesn't make a Ti tapered headset.

    I dunno, maybe I'll just stick to the normal aluminum tapered headset. I've had them on my S-Works for 15 years with zero issues ever, and they outlast the frames.

    Bottom bracket is standard english thread? Width? Guess I'll find out in 2 days.

    Pics to come!

    I've also got access to a USPS mail box on one of the military bases here in Okinawa Japan, if anyone is desperate for a 26", they can easily be had. I ordered mine from World Cycles, Amazon.jp store. They are located in Osaka. Price was 213840 Yen (1784 USD Today).

    isn't the xizang a semi integrated headset... so the ti won't fit any any configuration? (just a though, don't know for sure).

    I thought about ti one for my bike but heard that the press fit ti-ti could end up as a bad thing so I just got an aluminium one, works fine.

    I guess I'll find out when it gets delivered tomorrow. I've had a hard time finding info on this thing on the web. Pics to come shortly :-)

    So what am I looking for? Chris King Inset? So much has changed since the 90s. :-P

    Not sure... I don't think so. if it is semi integrated or "drop in" then I'm not sure CK make one - again happily proven wrong. they did say a while back that they won't make them because thye think they are a dumb idea - personally I love them but I can see the lack of durability being an issue.
    If they do make them then it looks like it would be an InSet... but that still seems press fit... where as Semi integrqated aren't (or integrated...whichever is the "drop in")... but that is assuming that the frame is "drop in", which it may well not be.

    As with everything biking these days, there a 50 bazillion standards to everything and you can't figure anything out half the time...where as there used to be 2 plus the few oddball sizes.
    Used to be 1" roadie, 1-1/8" oversize, 1-1/4" evolution (that had died by like 95/96)... now there is those plus 1.5", 1-1/8->1.5 tapers (I guess thats the size, no idea actially), and you have press fit, integrated (Zero stack) and semi integrated (Drop in) - assuming i got the last 2 the right way around... on every size... and I'm sure there are a few more floating around. so that 3 sizes became 15 in the blink of an eye...

    I just fired off a message to them, will see what they say. I haven't seen any pictures of Chris King on this bike, so probably not, but it can't hurt to ask.

    Perhaps my Chris King order will only be hubs and BB.

    I've noticed on a lot of bikes now, people have steer tube spacers on top of the stem. Why the hell would you not just cut the steer tube?

    I have literally been out of the bike scene (for parts and stuff) since the late 90s.

    I'm thinking of whatever is a reasonable weight 100mm-ish Marzocchi fork. Colony stem perhaps. Some riser bars, maybe carbon again? Oury grips and platform pedals.

    I think the reason for all the spacers is all the carbon steerer tubes, they come long and either the bike is built up so the swap the around for height, or build it up... then either don'
    t have the tools, or confidence to cut the steerer... or people don't want to because everyone these days seems to buy a bike have it for 3 days then sell it, so you don't want to cut the steerer so you keep the options of the next buyer...so spacers on to of the stem.
