    my GT Force (update)

    Update on my GT Force..

    switched to 810mm bars and just put a chainguide on. First time to fit one so I had some problems with clearances but I sorted those out.

    My problem now is I think I'll need a ton of service on my rear hub HAHA. Hope I wont need to get a new one.

    I built the RTS with parts I had laying around. Still looking for more vintage stuff, seatpost, stem, wider bars. I still have some Onza H.O brakes I can put on. And a Pace RC53 on the way. Still need to get the Noleen serviced.

    Beautiful looking machine - never seen one of these before.
    Like to have a closer look at the rear suspension system / setup.
    What year GT / model is it ?

    It's a GT RTS (1 or team, I don't know) from '94. The suspension uses a rocker at the bottom to actuate the shock:



    Because of the high pivot, the design has pretty awful chainpull. But is is really comfy on the downhill sections.

    That was a design feature back in the day, suspension when you coasted, locked out when you pedaled to make it like a HT... well they were still trying to figure out suspension back then, seemed liek a good idea at the time.
    All the gear and no idea.

    Post your GT here!!!

    Finally came around to switch to disc brakes on the '00 XCR3000 in Large.

    BB7's with front 160 HS1 and rear 140 Storm SL. Plus new front wheel Easton XC One, very light and well made. Blue Kore linear brake housing greatly match the lighter powder blue of the bike.

    Note : after these pics were taken, we fine tuned the calipers position (height and angle) to lower them on the rotors and get the pads angled perfectly with the rotors too. Lots of sanding and grinding to get the perfect fit.

    Cool bike! My first full suspension I ever got...beat the CRAP out of it and ended up cracking it near the seat post. Good luck with the parts.

    Finished for now until I find a nice Syncros seatpost (27.0), stem and handlebars. I would like to replace the Raceface Next SL cranks with Syncros revolutions, but those are sooo expensive.

    Looks like a '93, you can confirm by looking at the serial # on the bottom bracket, but IIRC that paint and graphics was only for '93 for the Outpost. I've got one just like it outfitted as my commuter. My only gripe about it is the oddball location for mounting a rear racks' stays, but I should be thankful because it led me to using a large saddlebag (18 liter Zimbale, similar to a large Carradice) on a Carradice quick release saddlebag support. I wouldn't have explored this method of carrying my gear otherwise, and I REALLY like it.

    Enjoy your GT!

    P.S. Let me know if you have any questions about that bike, I did end up switching out the brakes almost immediately, good cantis are great, but the ones that came with it seemed to be useless.

    Um, yeah, that outpost is a 96, the graphics are 96 and looks exactly like the red one in the 96 catalogue.

    Good catch! On my '93 the graphics are white and silver dot matrix style inside a a black outline. At first glance they appeared the same.

    Hello all, I have recently dusted off my 95ish? GT mountain bike and started riding again. I have had it since about 99. If possible I would like to see if you guys could help me identify it. The color is silver, the SN on the bottom is SK5H0157, it has 7005 stamped on the back forks. The components are as follows.
    Front derailer is a shimano Alivio
    Rear Derailer is a shimano Acera
    Front crank is Shimano Acera Hyperdrive -C
    Brakes are Shimano Altus
    Shifters are 3spd up front 7 spd back optical rapid fire- Dual SIS ST-M290
    Front hub is a shimano Altus
    Rear hub is a Parallax?
    Now Onto the pics.. From the searching I have found, the frame has the same look as the avalanche and Zaskar. I say that because of the weld up front by the goose neck and the thickness of the tubes.









    This pic is of remnants of a sticker. It was peeled off on both sides before I got it years and years ago. The down tube sticker I believe said, "ALL GT Terra"


    thanks for checking it out.. I plan on prolly doing some front shocks and some WTB Velociraptor tires. I have been putting some miles back on it in the trails and it is quite fun! I have missed it!

    Although GT carried that gusset design forward from the nicer bikes into their lower end offerings in later years, the parts spec on this bike would indicate something farther down the food chain than a Zaskar or Avalanche.
    I know the "All Terra" was associated with the Outpost in '93 and the years right around that IIRC, and IIRC my '88 Timberline also said "All Terra" on it.
    My impression is that the "All Terra" branding went with a number of their lower end (up to maybe middle of the line up) offerings for a number of years.
    I'm betting that your bike is a few years newer than '95, hopefully one of our serial # guru's will chime in and decipher it for you.
    A page or two back I posted what I was able to glean from this thread in the way of serial number information, it could well be that post would help you as well.

    I think I might have found what kind it is from another post from 2008 on here. Here is a picture of a 95 GT tempest. I looked it up on bikeapedia and most of the running gear matches to what I have as well. The sticker outlay looks like it could be the word tempest..
    Here are the pics that I found . Looks exactly like mine.


    Here is the post I found.

    2012 GT Avalanche 2.0

    Post your GT here!!!-imag0407.jpg

    Hello everyone!

    This is my 2012 GT Avalanche 2.0. It's completely stock except for the stem and handlebar. I opted to swap the stock flat top riser bar out for a Gravity Gap riser bar, but I don't really like it, specifically the 9 degrees of back sweep. I would prefer a straight riser bar, but I'm not having any luck finding one for under $45 and in white. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions!

    this is my baby paid £120 for it off my boss who had it from new but it sat in his garage for at least 6 yrs gathering dust - the formula gold discs i loved but were well beyond fixing even with a lot of help from chainreactioncycles.com so had to spend another £100 on a new set of avids.
    you guys all seem to have more stickers than mine though ie xcr3000 etc
    mine just says i drive 2.0?

    this is mine and me buds gt's the carrera is our shared just incase bike lol it was originally a hybrid but it sucked and the forks were only £30 so why not

    It's a 2007 3.0

    Thinking of stripping it, painting the frame and kitting it up, there are lots of marks where previous owner(s) have touched it up with a gloss black paint.. badly! Which is a shame as the frame is a nice matte black. Can't complain though

    Hope

    I just bought this 2010 GT Sensor 4.0 a few weeks ago from craigslist. I upgraded the wheels to Mavic Crossrides and the cranks to RaceFace Rides. The original owner put WTB Velociraptor tires on. I'm planning to upgrade the handlebars, seatpost, and cassette next. The swoopy top tube looks so cool. I love it!

    Thanks for the compliments! I didn't really plan on buying another bike, but it just looked so darn sexy, and the price was too low to pass up. Every time I see it I get a smile on my face.

    My 2008 Peace 9r. Really nice bike that has seen some upgrades along the way.
    Wider bars, shorter stem,
    Hope Tech evo X2 brakes
    Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.35 tires
    Hope Pro 2 SS/trials rear wheel,
    XT cranks,
    lighter post (Race Face) and saddle (WTB Devo),
    Hope seat post clamp (solved the notorious sliding post problem).
    And to top it off I just added a suspension fork (x-fusion slide). Very uncool, I know, but I'm getting old and need all the help I can get


    Cheers from Sweden

    My GT's

    Hi all first post and after quick scan through some of this thread there some really nice GT's on here.

    Anyway here's mine a GT Avalanche 1.0, 2008 I think:





    And I recently got this retro i-Drive 4, unsure on year but my aim to spend the winter upgrading the rear to a disc and some wider bars/shorter stem, plus a charge saddle like the avalanche.

    Frame was pretty chipped up so I carbon wrapped it till I can figure out if I want to have it powder coated. Also made a custom disc mount for the rear.

    Here's my GT, my first. Pics are stamped 2011 but I just got the bike a few months ago so I guess it's time to update my camera. This bike was produced through a joint business venture between American Eagle Outfitters and GT. A press release I found online stated its release date as July of 1999. It had a broken derailleur hanger bracket when I got it along few other small issues but so far it's been a great bike and alot of fun to ride although I feel the frame may be a bit large for me; the distance between the center of the bottom bracket and the center of the top tube is 20 inches and I'm 5'10". I haven't upgraded anything yet, and won't be until I obtain more information on this particular model. To date, I've been unable to locate any specs, manuals, frame type, model info, etc. I wrote a long post a few days ago in the "bicycles and frames" category that includes alot more info about my bike if you'd care to view it. This is the first GT bike I've ever owned and/or ridden and it's been a joy and pleasure to ride it.

    Interesting. What shape is the downtube?

    I assumed the downtube was round but I measured it with a caliper just to be sure. At the top of the downtube, close to the headtube weld and brake cable brackets the measurements were 2 1/4" vertically and 1 13/16 horizontally". At the bottom of the downtube closest to the bottom bracket the measurements were 1 13/16" vertically and 2 1/4" vertically, exactly the opposite of eachother, interestingly enough. I measured in the middle of the downtube and both vertical and horizontal measurements were 2" so the answer to your question would be that the downtube is round. I know welding will make metal expand as it heats up but I would not have expected that much variance.

    Interesting. I couldn't tell for sure from your pics (which are fine), but it almost looked like the downtube was triangular, which I've only seen on later GT bikes (either the Peace or Zum, I can't remember).

    Here's a shot of the brake/shift levers. I tried to add a good pic of the stem as well with no success.

    By couldn't do you mean you didn't realize it was possible or that we're not supposed to? If I'm going against the forum's wishes I'll pull all of them. I've seen alot of posts where the author stated he/she couldn't post pics until they after they had posted 10 times but I was able to post pics on my first post. I guess it's time for me to go back and re-read the forum guidelines and make sure I'm in compliance. I'm new to the forum and certainly don't want to do anything undesirable, not a great way to introduce myself to a group of folks, for sure.

    pics seem a fine size to me.
    its possible you could load pics as you attached them to the post rather than linked from an external site, lots of sites have restrictions on that so as to reduce spam/viruses etc.
    All the gear and no idea.

    Re: Post your GT here!!!

    ^^^threaded fork? 1 1/8? I'd upgrade fork if I were you. That's kinda old fork model isn't it? I've converted two GTs from threaded to non threaded fork, its pretty easy. Need to get ya a star nut and new stem but its not that expensive unless you go get name brand stuff. It will be kinda hard to get another threaded 1 1/8 fork that isn't old and beat up. Be better off just up dating to threadless stem.

    ^don't you need a new headset as well going from threaded to threadless...

    but since it's a GT and a Judy then it'll be likely 1995 or later it should come threadless anyway (could be wrong of course).

    You can get loads of forks (also assuming 1-1/8 inch steerer along with threadless), just need to get something that is 80mm or less in travel and has v-brake (cantilever) studs if you are running those sort of brakes.

    Post your GT here!!!

    Headset^^ yes and no. The tempest up in this page that I put a non threaded fork on I didn't have to change. I used same bearings and had to get a stem, cap and star nut is all. The aggressor I did for a buddy I had to change out the the cups that are pressed in the frame cause the ones on it made the bearings go to deep and the cup and fork were rubbing each other. I'd go ahead and get a new headset anyways tho. This aggressor in pic has a crappy fork on it cause it is just to get my buddy started to see if he want to take up riding trails with me or not

    well there you go, always figured you'd need a new one with the lockrings and such! that aggressor looks 98ish, I woudln't have thought that threaded would be still around, I guess when you get into the cheaper end of the range they still are... but this guys bike had judy XC's, looking in the catalogues anything with a judy on it seemed to get an aheadset from 95 on, stuff with indy's and rst still got threaded.
    But we'll never know until the guy gets back with what he has, a pic or model or something...

    I was surprised that a 2000 Timberline I picked up still came with a threaded stem. As you say, some of the lower end offerings still came with them for a while.

    I know almost nothing about suspension forks. I do have a Rock Shox Judy 21R that is sitting in my discard pile after converting my girlfriends Pantera to a rigid fork as her around town and B&B bike. If someone can tell us if it has the parts you need and how to get them out of it, I'll pull them and mail them to you.

    BTW, the "All Terra" is kind of a tagline for GT's offroad bikes and encompasses a LOT of different models of bike. Whatcha got? (pic thread!)

    Yeah, I used to think it only applied to their lower end models, but someone in this thread set me straight, and I've since seen photos of it on some higher end offerings. In fact, I recently picked up a '94 Corrado which was the last of the production high end steel frames and it has the "All Terra" decals too.



    This is it just after I picked it up and spent an hour in a nearby park removing some junk* off it and swapping out the saddle, stem, handlebars, grips, and pedals with stuff from my spares parts boxes so I could ride it the 50 miles home from where I met the Craigslist seller.

    I'm super stoked to have this take over commuting duties from my '93 Outpost, this baby has nice light double-butted True Temper GTX chromoly tubing, Bologna Lite fork and the vaunted Groove Tube, the first of our fleet with that signature GT feature.

    I'm just getting started stripping it down now and going to see how much I can rehab the paint with some judicious polishing.


    * "Junk" = remnants of a computer and something like a Clickfix handlebar bag mount as well and a worn Jannd saddlebag.

    Naw, I'm about 6'2" and my legs aren't particularly long. I just like riding upright. Those tires are pretty narrow for 26 inchers (1.25" ?) which adds to making the bike look bigger than it is, it's just a 22" frame.

    It looks better in pictures than it is, it isn't mint by a long shot. Someone rode it a lot. The Craigslist seller picked it up from a Sheriff's auction, so I assume it was stolen and unclaimed (that's a police inventory sticker on the top tube). Whoever it was stolen from rode it a lot, there is a lot of cable wear on the paint that isn't obvious in non-close-up photos and something about the combination of Clickfix style handlebar bag holder, computer, fancy clipless pedals* and Jannd tool saddlebag told me that someone put miles on it. I picked up a bunch of car paint products that I'm about to try out on it in an attempt to rehab the paint.

    * The pedals are detachable from the spindles, I think a quick release anti-theft measure I saw somewhere on some pricey pedals. Surplus to my needs though, hopefully somebody at the bikeswap will want them...

    Good job! GT mad.

    Sold the i-drive 5.0 to fund the Avalanche 3.0
    Sad times but had a good few years on it! Decided I wanted to try a hardtail see how it goes so far so good. Might go for an old Karakoram next

    Thanks, they are 2001 i-Drive 5.0 (Small Frame) and 2007 Avalanche 3.0 (Medium Frame)

    i-Drive now sadly gone but fancied something a little bigger and hardtail hence the Avalanche.. needs a bit of loving yet not sure how many previous owners but so far I'm liking it a lot

    Thanks! I'm looking to try out a front or full suspension GT for offroad and the few ice/snow days we get here to complement my '94 Corrado commuter and my '88 Timberline touring rig, I appreciate the info!

    How'd you like the i-Drive 5.0?

    Yea it was really nice lots of enjoyment out of it, the harder you rode it the better it got! although it had the stock coil rear shock and original Judy suspension I had no complaints, would definitely get another! :-) I really fancy a 90's frame to play with maybe an old karakoram or timberline, I'm studying vehicle paint at the minute at college so the opportunity to paint a bike frame is always there, do you have any pics of your bikes up? I can look through this thread all day haha
