    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!

    Yes that is where peopel have been getting them... there si a thought in the back of my head, get rid of my zaskar and old xizang and buy a new one, get the bonus of newness nd the new feature (discs etc) along wioth the bonus of Ti... but I dunno, that would mean doing it...

    The Lefty has for years been stiffer than a conventional crowned fork.
