    Hope

    Here is my 1995 GT outpost trail, it has many original parts. i have only changed the saddle, grips, brakes and obviously the tires. It has Shimano Altus-SIS transmision and used to have Altus-SLR cantilevers brakes.
    "She" has been my loyal friend for many many miles! Now i`m looking forward to setup a Shimano Deore group and susnpesion fork but i couldn`t find any good , because it has a 22,2 mm normal size FSA headset. Any recomendation?
    i hope u like it!




    Here with my brother`s 1995 blue GT Outpost Trail, her sister

    GT noob... mid-90's Tequesta?

    Just got back into cycling; hadn't been around pedals in over 20 years! Incredibly glad to be back to it... I got my hands on a GT Tequesta from a local dude, not sure what year but I would guess mid 90's? Maybe? It's an excellent ride and I have been rolling on it every day. Buddy told me to go with street tires but the older-town terrain I run around in has me thinking it's set up perfectly...

    GT Tequesta

    It's like my last post went gonzo... just a quick note, its been many years since I was serious about biking and dove in with a GT Tequesta. I've had it for about a month
    and a half with a couple hundred miles and LOVE this bike. Anyone have some scans or ideas where one could find some old GT catalogs? I think it's mid-90's, am I close?

    here you will find, mostly German, but old catalogs. Your info about your Tequesta should be among it. Have fun browsing.

    I recognise you from Bike radar ;-)

    The seatpost is an Exotic form Carbon Cycles:

    http://www.carboncycles.cc/?s=0&t=0&c=47&p=801&

    The 31.6, 350mm version weighs just 184g. I paid 35 quid for mine though!

    Is that a Magura Fork, I just bought one for my Xizang and just love how it changed the attitude of the bike. It's hard to find a fork with brake bosses for V's, It was between Magura or the Sid. I'm glad I found this fork @ a close out price. Ride hard GT peeps!

    Yes, a Magura Laurin 80mm. One of the best forks I ever owned. Superstiff and not to much on the heavy side. Beside, as a German you've got to have one .
    You are right with the V-bosses. If you want to have a new fork, it's hard to find 80mm and Vee's.

    Congrats for choosing the Magura over the SID.

    2000 Xcr 3000

    My XCR 3000. It's mostly stock, except for the brakes, tires, pedals, saddle, and rear wheel. I found her on craigslist for $350! Best steal ever! I absolutely love this bike!

    Hi All,
    New to post, but I love to ogle all the nice GT's.
    About a year ago I bought this early (?) Zaskar. Serial numbers is 12900716. I'm assuming this was made in Dec. 1990. Also stamped "blem" on the opposite hanger.
    When were Zaskar's first made? Can't seem to find any info.
    Can one of the old pro's around here help me with some of the components that don't look stock to me?
    I'm especially curious about the fork setup and canti brakes.
    Thanks to all!

    Similar to mine... 129000732

    Your's is a first year model. I'm sure other's will comment on available components at the time, but mine has shimano XT. Cool bike, post up some pics!

    From what I can remember the earliest serial number I've ever seen on a Zaskar is July of 1990. First official model year was 1991, first year it was in their catalog.....the Zaskar was not GT's first aluminum bike. They offered their Virage 700D cross bike in aluminum in 1990 but it was Taiwan built. Your fork wouldn't have been a stock item. The stock fork shipped with the frame set was a GT 2x4 rigid chromoly fork. 1991 you would order a frame kit which included the 2x4 fork, GT flip flop stem, Tioga oversize headset with GT double locknut, GT alloy QR seat lever, Dia Compe alloy front brake hanger and a GT/True Temper chromoly seat post The also offered a complete bike with either full Deore XT or full Suntour XC -Pro group.

    Your brakes appear to be Control Tech cantilevers.

    Good job! 90-91

    Thanks GM for your input.

    My Zaskar has been "evolving" likely for the last few owners. My bike came with
    a Kalloy quill stem,
    blue Answer Taperlight bars,
    m900 xtr rear derailleur,
    probably the original XT front derailleur,
    probably the original M730 crankset with newer rings,
    original U-brake, with a problem solver on it,
    saddle was a take-off from someone's Specialized,
    seatpost was a cut-down SR 26.8 (Is 26.8 the correct size? It seems kinda loose, but holds)
    I think the original hubs and wheels are still going....XT hubs, 7 speed, but the rims have no label...?? Who knows..

    I'm in the process of upgrading to ride this thing!
    I replaced the fork (some kind of early Rockshox with an air kit??) with a theadless Hippietech Judy SL, suspension corrected, Thomson stem, Woodman headset, Sette cheap bars, and an Avid Single Digit SL linear pull brake.

    I just can't wait to finish up. Will post photos of the freshening.

    I'm so blown away by the GT fans here. I'm glad I can keep another SoCal bike on the trail for a few more years, let's hope! Thanks!!

    Without putting a micrometer in the seat tube or trying another size post it's tough to say but all three of the early frames I have all have 27.0 posts in them.

    My 1992 Richter 8.0

    Here is my 1992 Richter 8.0

    Built up with parts I had lying around, except I had to buy the XT u-brake. XT thumbies, single digit 7 v-'s up front. Avid SD 1 levers, LX front and rear derailleurs, XT hubs on rhyno lites, siguno cranks, syncros stem, kalloy post. I have some Deore 2 finger levers and canti brakes, I might put on. It rides better than I thought it would almost better than my Bontrager, almost.

    Well it's not like more than a few of us haven't asked the airheads at roadbikereview for a GT thread multiple times....I say post away. Many of us have posted about our GT road bikes. Let's face it at one time they sponsored and provided bikes to the US national team, the Adecco Lotto Pro Tour Team and today to NRC's Jelly Belly but the editors at roadbikereview don't seem to take them as a serious road bike line....take a look at some of the companies they do give separate manufacturers threads to....roll eyes....just amazing.

    I am quite new to the GT brand and it is very cool seeing some of these models and learning a little of the GT innovations and history. While it is not a classic, here is my '09 (I think) Marathon Sport. I have had it for about 3 weeks now and have upgraded the brakes to Juicy Fives, the seat post to a Thomson Elite and the saddle to a Specialized Sonoma.

    My wife's Pantera I just polished the frame put on a Manitou Axel (diva edition ) as well as new Raceface Evolve xc cranks, Raceface BB, XT rear derailleur, and Hayes 9's up front w/Azonic Outlaw front wheel. I have a few more things to finish up and, the picture does not show the new crank set . I wish I had before and after pictures.

    Nice, I will be picking up this one later today, and I wonder if this one is the same...
    I have been looking through this thread from the beginning trying to find other Ricochets and this is the only one that is the same. I will need a new crank for it, but otherwise is in excellent shape.

    I have a first year 16" LTS, but this one pictured was special. Yes, that is a Ti front triangle. Sadly, this bike in no-more. Mixing a compliant Ti front end with a rear suspension didn't make for good handling. Maybe with more development? But it made a great poser bike.

    I rode one of these prototype LTS Ti's back in "the day" on an outing with a member of the GT product team. It was the first day I'd ever ridden a fully and it was a great ride!

    NICE work! I'm still debating switching out the Maverick Speedball for a Silver Thomson Setback... But I like being able to drop the seat on the fly for the downhill sections!
