    Geometry for 26" GT Peace

    Does anyone know where I can find the geometry for the 2007 GT Peace 26" ? I've looked on their site and nothing.

    I'm bringing this thread back because I also want to know the geo for the '07 Peace 26er. Specifically for the small size...

    I'll add some questions about this bike, anyone have experience with it? Looking at it cuz I want a SS, and a 26 so I can get tubes here in Iraq. Looking at it cuz i think I can get it shipped here... So anyone have any experience?
    Just circles turning circles....

    2008 and 2009 9'r versions show 71/74 why would the geometry change just because the bike has a bigger wheel? It's a cross country spec hardtail which most all are 71/74 these days. The small frame might be 70.5/74. Very typical for a smaller frame to be a tad more lax on the head tube angle to allow for enough to clearance.
    Needed: 26.8mm XTR seatpost, blue GT/Grundig Jersey.

    Does anyone have the geometry for the 26" Peace? I ask because I'm looking to do a 650b project single speed. Many thanks

    I've got an '07 Peace 9r SS and I love it! I imagine it will be awesome as a 26 too. It will take a beating. I've changed some components so it is more AM friendly and it will take a beating. My advice is to check it out. I highly doubt you will be disappointed in it.

    I just fitted 650b to 26" GT Peace 2010 model (I think).
    Fits fine. Just need to test it out riding.

    The brakes line up? or you're going sans brakes?

    Thanks. Tons of room left inside the fork.

    Do you have any views of the clearance between the stays?
    2.1 or 2.3 Nevegals?
    Medium frame?

    Frame size is M, and tires are 2.3 Nevs.

    Here are more pictures for chain/seat stay clearance.

    Chain stays pretty close, but there's still some room to pull the axle so that the tires will be in the "fatter" sections of the chainstays.

    Yes, there's tons of clearance for front fork.
    I think the front forks are the same as the 9r peace.
    100mm spec for 26" and 80mm spec for 9r, so you can probably fit a 29" if you are in the mood

    I bought a frame only and don't have a fork yet. Do you know the AC dimension or could you measure it?

    What year is yours? Thread started out asking about 2007 so I assumed that, but after revisiting pictures again doesn't look like it.
    I've got a frame with this graphics scheme and my searching has shown it to be a 2007.


    Mine has an eccentric BB and a hooded dropout with no provision for sliding.

    Initially, the peace came with eccentric BB, then switched to track-style dropouts. Not sure but mine is 2010 model. Fork measurement, from axle to crown is approximately 45.5cm, maybe closer to 46cm...
