    Smile I think this Outpost is finally done !

    Made many changes and upgrades,spent money and hours on this once rusted,old green gt.
    If I'd done it all over again i'd probably re-route the cables and welded rear disc-brake adaptor.
    I'll save that for the next build !

    Looks great, that's a schwanky Outpost. Love the forks too.

    That looks great. Maybe it'll inspire me to do up my old '92 chromoly outpost I have hanging up in the garage, What bottom bracket are you running? Mine has an internal bearing square taper bb and I would want to switch to an outboard bearing. Those forks look nice too.

    The Deore crankset is 3 piece,so the bottom bracket is one with the crank.I got rigid fork cause with 1 inch frame you have limited options.Rebuild your 92 outpost,the whole process is fun.
    If i get another old GT frame i'd like to build a single speed,or 1x9 but with disc brakes this time.

    Thanks for the info. I'd probably build it as a single speed but skip the discs to keep costs down. Just keep it as a fun / loaner bike. I cant believe I've had this bike for 20 years, it was my first mountain bike. Gave it away 5 years ago, but it came back....started pulling it apart just to try to get it working , then realized it needs pretty much everything, and got sidetracked.
