    A little help please on my used GT

    I haven't been on a bike in a decade, but I just turned 30 and I figured its high time I get some exercise that I can really ENJOY. I bought this bike off of Craigslist for $75 after giving it a spin. I figured ANY GT was better than Walmart junk, or even dropping$500 for a new bike when I'm just getting back to it. I have not been able to identify the model or year it was produced after pouring over the net for a week. I didn't even know what a "triple-triangle" was until I started research and realized my GT lacked it. Was I duped? Is it a gen-u-wine POS or did I end up with a decent bike to start back on the road to sore-butt with? ANY help would be much appreciated
    Serial# is D60105996


    Thanks guys!

    I dont know what that is, its not a G.T.

    Post this photo over in the VRC vintage, retro, classic forum, they can probably ID it for you.

    Not to be a bearer of bad news but that also doesn't look like a Rock Shox fork to me but instead an older oem RST or clone common on dept store bikes of the era.

    Not a GT but it's a decent bike for $75. Ride it until it breaks and then save up for a newer real GT.

    Now...who would want to pretend to have a Quadra 5 or 10? The real thing was bad enough!

    Agreed with the other posters....try to get a few hundred miles out of it, then move up! Any "real" bike for $75 is not bad.

    Thats the second time I have heard of someone mislabeling a non triple triangle frame as a GT. Kind of annoying that people will dupe others like that. At least he didn't really rip you off, just deceived. 75$ does seem like a fair price if it's in working order.
