    ... and if we just ... my real american Zaskar

    One of the nicest made frames on the planet,mmm oh no, universe!

    I have to say that the frame has outlived the componentry. Now it is hanging in my garage waiting on it's new parts. I already have the ultra cool Ritchey logic cranks!

    I'm a Zaskar lover!

    99 GT Rebound

    Here is the bike I had up until last spring. 99 GT Rebound, Solar Citrus is the color. I loved the color. I remember when I got it I test rode a Trek and a specialized and really liked both of them but I was like..maybe we should swing by the GT shop. Well, as soon as I saw this I was sold. I always had a fondness for GT's frames. Last year I really got into biking and realized that the GT was just too big for me. I added Ritchey riser bars and stem and a Manitou Axel Comp fork. About a week later I decided what I needed was a full suspension bike so I went out and got a Trek Fuel. I sold the GT shortly afterwards and I think I only put about 30 miles on it with all the mods. I wish I woulda kept it!

    Here is the GT stuck in the mud


    My friend Adam riding the GT on one of its last rides with me.


    I had that bike over 4 years and never had to change the tires or tubes! The trek I bought was on its 3rd set of tires by winter. I guess that due to all the new singletrack I found.

    99 16" GT Zaskar

    Hi guys

    Heres my Little Zaskar that i have owned from new. Out of all my bikes, this is the one that would never be able to part with! Recently polished, i am changing the nasty orange pedals, getting rid of the Chain device and fitting a front mech and middle chainring, new saddle, Michelin Comp 24's on the Mavic 521 rims, and ODI lock grips if i can find anywhere here in the UK! Its a pretty light and set up for more hard jumpy freeride use rather that pure XC. I love it because its one of the last 'proper' Zaskars before they went all Taiwanese!

    Sorry for it being so fuzzy but my flash doesn't work.

    1996 GT Timberline. Possibly 1997. I got it when I was 13. I'm 20 now. All original parts except for the Seat, Grips, Tires, and Pedals. Maybe even original chain. But that bike has been through hell. I've done stuff to it which would make you think "What was he thinking". But basically did stuff you would expect a 14 year old would do to a bike. I think the only thing that saved it from total destruction was the fact that I got a BMX bike which I destroyed completely. The only thing I haven't broken on the BMX bike was the frame and forks. Everything else yes it was broken. Including the seat post.

    But for the aftermarket of the GT Mtb...
    -Vellgo Clipless pedals: But I don't have clipless shoes. These are the BMX style clipless pedals that actually have a platform so I can ride without clipless shoes.
    -Specialized grips: I got these becuase they were the cheapest
    -selleprima seat: I think this seat was made for downhill becuase I feel like I just got out of prison after I ride.
    -Panaracer FireXCpro 2.1s: Probably the only thing I went all out on.
    -2 Stainless Steel Waterbottle holders: Top of the line baby.

    And the bike it's self consists of shimano stuff. It ain't the bikes with the $2,000 shocks and all but it works for me.

    this is my girlfriend's little 2002 aggressor. got the frame for $59 on ebay. most of the parts are hand-me-downs from upgrades to my bikes.
    not a bad little bike. it was really tough to find a frame that fit someone who is 5' and about 100 lbs. but the bent top tube gives plenty of standover.

    Cool-blue Rhythm iDrive's rule

    Yeah. Thanks for the GT area. Been riding GTs for almost 25 years from vert to my latest. I must say, as the mechanic of my group, I get to ride all kinds of FS designs. I've worked on/tried FSRs, Sugars, Fuels, Haros and the iDrive climbs better than any of them up tight, rocky chutes here in Ct. This thing digs in and climbs like a raped possum. I'll drop off anything up to 3 feet or so and have never had a problem. Currently, the bike weighs 26.5 lbs or so. Pretty light for the types of trails we ride here.

    Oh, yeah, I included a picture of my first iDrive. It's a '99 XCR 1000. Parts spec sux, though. All the components feel like they are made out of plastic.

    Spec:

    '01 iDrive 4.0 (bought for color, it's the same as my old team vert bike)
    '01 Manitou Six Deluxe 80mm with fat-guy spring
    Maxm MX-6 bars
    WTB headset (junk, just waiting for it to explode)
    Raceface stem
    LX Shifters
    ODI Ruffian lock-ons
    Avid SD-7 levers and brakes
    XTR cables
    '04 Truvativ Firex cranks with Raceface bashguard
    Eggbeater C's
    BB-UN72
    LX front derailleur
    Deore rear derailleur (can't justify more expensive as I rip at least one apart every month)
    Bontrager Race post
    IRC Seracs with homemade Stans (best tire ever for climbing rocks/roots)
    Terry Dragonfly MG saddle (keeps my junk nice and feely)
    Sram 9.0 cassette and PC-59 chain

    Homemade wheels:
    GT/Hadley hubs (3-pawl upgrade) DT Comp 14/15 black, l'il Snappers, wicked light
    bolt-on skewers

    New question here. Gt Ruchas Question

    Thanks

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think GT has been around for 25 years. I need a history lesson.

    Yup, Gary Turner's have been around for a long time.

    Was racing at the time (pre-freestyle) and had this frame.
    http://www.bmxmuseum.com/4images80s/81gt_frame.jpg

    It was all chrome. Let's see, that was '81.

    I remember seeing this advert:
    http://www.bmxmuseum.com/3images70s/77gt.ad.jpg

    But, it was like in 78 or 79.

    So, yeah, in total about 24 years or so. I still have my backup vert bike. it's in bad disrepair, but it's an '86 Pro Tour. There's 19 years right there.

    Thanks for making me feel like an old fart.

    Wink It's not your fault....

    that I'm an old fart. GT history is actually pretty cool. That's probably why so many are still hanging on and why it has been so sad to see all of the crap the corporate wh0res have put the company through over the past few years.

    GT has always had the right "feel" for me, as mentioned in someone's earlier post. This was a "boutique" brand back in the 80s which had much respect for their design philosophies and engineering. I always chose GT for my show bikes because they always seemed right feeling, despite better offers from other manufacturers for sponsorship.

    I still feel the iDrive was a quantum leap in suspension design. You don't need any of that new fangled stable platform crap to compensate for a design flaw. It rides well stock with minimal fiddling. I am very glad to see that the new corporate ownership has kept most of the design team intact, producing the IDXC, Ruckus, DHi, etc. I think a lot of the original design philosophies that Gary used are still intact. We'll see.

    Tis a shame what Pacific is doing to the GT line in my opinion. I don't think I have ever owned a GT in all of my years riding. I now own a Schwinn Moab DS3 that uses the I-Drive technology somewhat and it rides very nice albeit a bit heavy. But as my name suggests, I am a Kona rider.

    I think Pacific is doing a great job by letting the guys at the GT designing team come up with new inovations like the GT IDXC which is a great crosscountry bike, in my opinion, I don't think there is a KONA bike out there that has the looks of the I-drive 5, and the GT road bikes are tour de france level., so if you're trying to post negative comments on these threads, is suggest you go back to the KONA thread.
