    2014 GT Timberline.. Upgraded from a hard forked 12 year old Specialized HR..

    The Surtour forks are "eh".. but they have a "lock out" feature so on roads and sooth rides I just lock them. On trials and rough(er) stuff I unlock them and go.. The 29in wheels and 24spd drive train make a huge difference, as do the disc brakes..

    Whoa. What tires are those? Look like cheapo eBay fixie tires, or something better? Either way I like it

    They are cheapo eBay tyres indeed :-) £17.50 for the pair. Just for a bit of Martian fun! Normally running the Schwalbe Kojak as you can see in earlier posts. Get ready for cheapo tyres no.2...................

    i-Drive 4.0

    Here's the other ride. Immaculate. Rock Shox Judy suspension painted white. Plenty of upgrades, fast as hell. Also sporting the novelty Sweetskinz tyres until I get the Blue Panaracers on. This is my second i-Drive now, I deeply regretted selling my old one.

    Really are superb bikes. If you've never ridden one I highly recommend :-)

    Here is a quick update on my Zaskar :
    -New Garbaruk Xtender
    -New Garbaruk Custom XC Light handlebar
    -New M987 brakes
    -XX1 Der & shifter
    -RARA DD at the back for puncture safety





    and here is the kind of marathon it rides : Mountain Bike Ride Profile | Rodage transmission XX1, tarte flambée Power ! near Traenheim | Times and Records | Strava

    ain't bad for a 26er humm !?

    ^ That Zaskar is the reason I love GT's so much. You can't ride that without standing and staring at it for a few hours before you get on, and then they ride like nothing else! :-)

    Big GT fan, it looks like maybe I'm not alone...

    Here is my '93 Karakoram. I've upgraded many of the parts over the years. I want to put a dynamo hub on it. But I had to get a new chain and cassette:
    Post your GT here!!!-k2-right.jpg
    Post your GT here!!!-k2-front.jpg

    This is the wife's '99 Rebound, not a lot of upgrades. I had to get it a new chain and cassette as well, boo!

    Post your GT here!!!-rebound-right.jpg
    Post your GT here!!!-rebound-front.jpg

    Fenders (wife no-likey):
    Post your GT here!!!-rebound-fenders.jpg

    I have a couple of other GT's, I will try to get and post up some pics. One is a '95 Ricochet (purple) and a late '80's Outpost (super hot -splattered Orange)

    We just each put on a set of Michelin Country Rock tires on, not sure if we like them yet or not. They are much quieter than the originals (Ritchey Z-max, WTB Velociraptors)

    I scored some fenders and a rack yesterday at the local collective. I also got the new chains and cassettes installed on both of the bikes.

    I'm pretty excited, I found a new killer LBS that stocks the SP Dynamo hubs and has a great selection of the B&M lights. Their prices are even competitive.

    Kind of a homage to the bike above:

    Got this refurbished from a LBS several years ago. Anyone able to tell what year it was originally made?

    Why are you trying to change to discs? If you have decent cantis and levers, that are set up right, they have more than enough power. Trying to convert a rigid bike that isn't set up for discs isn't easy and ends up looking ugly.

    I put a new fork on my gf's bike to make the front disc cause I had the parts laying around anyways. I might do the rear since I have a disc compatible back wheel and brakes already. I don't think I'd do it if I didn't have the parts already though.

    1989 GT Tequesta

    My dad had his old and barely used GT Tequesta laying around in his basement, so I decided to convert it to a drop bar commuting monster!
    The thumb shifters that it came with conveniently had steel bands, so I was able to spread them a bit to fit on the ends of the drops so they operate like barcons.

    I was pleasantly surprised at its 27.5 lb weight with heavy pedals and tires. I also added personal touches such as pink bar tape and its many stickers. My favorite is the "Bacon Powered" one on the top tube

    The thing rides great: it's smooth in the way only steel can be, and while it's heavier and slightly slower than a road oriented bike it doesn't feel sluggish. It's low profile so it's unlikely to attract thieves, and I'd like to try touring in the future and this would be a good bike to ride as well

    Keep an eye out on Craigslist that's where most bikes go that are stolen... Or ridden. Depends on who steals it I guess. I've had most of my bike's stolen, but got some of them back by driving around the neighborhoods and skateparks

    Definitely not as expensive as most bikes here... Or close to. Hopefully one day. But in the mean time, it matches my skill level and its fun as all hell.

    I am mid build of my I Drive 5, I found a new Los stock frame and starting there. Not much money into it yet but can't figure out the bb size. Maybe try three will work. Anyone know what it is, and the front deraileur?

    Finally starting replacing all the stock stuff I've broken. Along with some bits of flair...



    Now just to rebuild the used RS fork and I'll finally be ready to go.

    That's a sweet looking bike. What other brands were you considering?

    Thanks !! Norco Sight and Yeti were my short list, but Yeti got too expensive (planning to build from a SB5 frame, but didn't want the SB-75 as it wasn't really loved or well regarded by many).

    Anyway I'm a GT man in any case, in the end GT got their act together and did what all respectable critics were asking to be done to the top end Sensors; to give it 150mm 34 forks, a single chain ring, short stem and wide bars. Took them a while but they got there, and this bike might win some serious respect now.

    Post your GT here!!!

    Just started riding again been since i was in my early teens (and that was bmx). Looked over my price range and tried a couple bikes, this one fit and from my bmx days I was familiar with GT so thats what I went with. S/M Backwoods sport, has 27.5 mainly cause thats what where on the frame that fit, I didn't really have a wheel size preference.Post your GT here!!!-uploadfromtaptalk1423623297866.jpg

    Thanks sebob! It has served me well so far.

    When i purchased the bike i didn't know much about GTs in general so i was surprised to find out that my small frame (16.5) does not have the triple triangle.

    Anyway, this is a such nice thread. Glad i was able to find this!

    Here's my old beasty. Not sure I've ever posted it to MTBR, used to be more of a Pinkbike guy. I believe it's a 2011 Sanction. It's served me well for four years. Only changes I've made to it are the 32 tooth Raceface and the Kronolog. No, I don't ride with my seat that high.

    I've always liked the looks of those Distortions and I've heard good things about them, less travel but still rippers. Do you like yours so far?

    Built up a Zaskar 2008 Re-Issue I found at a local bike shop
    tried to keep the bike under a 600 dollar budget so specs arent too amazing
    the LBS had some older stocked SHIMANO LX ST-M585 Shifters and Hydraulic Disc brakes so I went for those, but used the cheaper Altus deraileurs.
    since I live in Taiwan, most of the other stuff are from white-brands (Shiney, Chosen, UNO, Lasco etc sorts)
    --
    Took her for a spin this morning and feels great! though I did find the XL frame a bit on the larger side (im 6ft), will be riding a bit more to see if the fit is really off :P

    Here's my '91 Tequesta. It was my first MTB. Got it freshman year in college. Abused it horribly. It's been kept around as an "extra bike" doing various duty. I lent it to my dad for a few years, I put a kids seat on teh back and it was the designated baby seat bike for a while.

    Throughout this time, parts failed one after another, and I band-aided it back to rideable. It had dwindled to a frankenstein single speed afetr the derailleurs gave up teh ghost, had mismatched wheels since the hubs finally failed, but th ebiggest issue was the frozen aluminum seatpost. It had been frozen for over 15 years. It was in a decent position for me, so I just let it go, not wanting to put in the time and effort to get it out, but it always kept me from doing more with what I think was a nice under-rated frame.

    Well, finally earlier this month I attacked the seatpost. Tried several things people reccomended, but lost patience with all of the slow approaches, and skipped forward to the hacksaw blade method. It was a bit slow, but it worked. So, with teh post out, I decided to do a budget build. My primary mountain bike needed a refresher, so I bought most of my new parts for it, and moved the old, but still functional drive train to the GT. Bought some new bits on clearance, and my LBS sourced a few pieces from the back for dirt cheap....a few new "take off" parts.

    Anyway, long story short, I finished it last night. Purists look aay, because I built it for what feels right for me, not what was correct fro this bike in '91. It has wide bars and a short stem. I fitted a few stems, all longer than what I settled on, but I like the short stem wide bar combo, even on this old frame. The fork will be swapped for an 80mm Rockshox Duke I nabbed on ebay tonight, so the geometry will be tweaked a bit, but the head angle seels pretty steep, and the duke isn't long travel so I think it will be positive

    Anyway, here it is. I feel like I've been re-united with an old friend.

    Cool. Jealous of your V brake mounts. Man I am not a fan of a u-brake on the rear of this thing.

    Boy there are some really nice looking GTs on this thread!

    1993 Timber Line still hanging on after 22 years. The RST 460 suspension is going to have to go. No longer functional. Looking for standard fork and will put on some new tires. Still lots of service left in this bike.

    I don't have any experience setting them up*, but I hear that if you do manage to get them set up right, the U-brakes are quite powerful.

    * I sliced the under the chainstay U-brake mounts off of my used '88 Timberline, and welded new canti bosses in the usual place, before I knew that they could be good brakes. Still, I prefer having them where I can visually inspect them easily, and where they are generally easier to work on, so I'm not feeling much loss there. Particularly since I have taken that bike off-road a few times.

    Nice! Don't know if it is the size of that one, or the year, but I've seen a few that were pretty close to or that exact model and year that looked funky with the shock fork, but that bike looks good. That's a nice color too! We're lucky these days, there are lots of rigid fork options to choose from...

    Took a pic of this, but forgot to share it here:



    1997 GT Tequesta FS

    GT only offered the Tequesta with a front suspension this year. Given the way GT sometimes used the same frame for either several models (with different levels of components) or as a hand me down from a nicer model the previous year, I have wonder if this frame is the same as some other GT frames? A higher end '96 or '95? Or another bike in '97? Someone knows. I assume the geometry of this is different than the non FS Tequestas offered that year, it makes sense that it would also be used somewhere else in the line up.

    The paint is interesting and really cool. It's kind of an iridescent metallic color, a nice later follow on to the early Dupont Imron finishes I so like. This is lighter and depending on the light and what is being reflected around it, looks anywhere from greenish to purplish to a wet metal color. I like it.

    I tossed on some of the parts* I had been hoarding for my off-road MTB build to kind of mock it up and get a better look at it.

    * T.H.E. Industries fenders, King cargo cage, Crane Suzu bell, Oddyssey Triple Traps, parts box; bar ends, grips, saddle, wheels, flash light mount, rear light (I can ride to two different nearby off-road areas and then stow the lights and city rubber)

    This still leaves me looking for a proper off-road MTB tough! I'd like to actually try riding a front suspension bike, and I'd like to actually give aluminum a try, I'm pretty much only interested in GT's and only like old school diamond frame shaped frames, so once sloping top tubes come along I'm out of luck. There's basically only one year frame I'm looking for then, my "Eleanor" a year 2000 model GT Rebound in 22"...

    Close, but no cigar!

    First post.

    Many years ago, I bought my first GT: a beautiful 94 Talera in "Purple Rain". This was stolen, and so I bought a Timberline next, put on a Mag 21 (long travel kit), a bunch of Onza parts and Shimano LX/XT parts.
    The frame got replaced by a 96 Psyclone in team colours. This got stolen as well.
    Next up, I got a 98 Avalanche and upgraded that with XTR/XT and Syncros parts.
    This also got stolen (partially).

    Now, at that time, GT had pretty much left the German market and it became difficult to get my hands on a new model. I ended up getting a German brand (Nöll) and used the parts that were left from the Avalanche and added some Tune, Hügi, and Syntace components.

    Now, 15 years later, I am back in the GT fold, even convinced my girlfriend to get one (2014 GT Avalanche Comp GTW).

    Anyway, this is my 2015 Avalanche Comp, with a few parts form my old bike as well as a few new components. This is work in progress.

    GT Tequesta. Late 90's if I had to guess. I had the frame sitting around and decided to see what I could build.

    what's up people!!! I'm back in the GT family....after my Force Carbon Sport was stolen July '14 from my garage, I've built my dream bike!

    Been having a heck of a time trying to figure out the routing situation, but can't wait to get this baby rolling!

    Easiest weight loss is in the tires/tubes. Next, XT cassette, carbon bars and grips. I've had my Large down to 26 lbs at one point with Avid AD7s. and GT/Hadley non-disc hubs with DB spokes and aluminum nipples.

    Now I'm back up to around 27.5 or so with disc brakes and American Classic hubs.

    A faster rolling tire could make it feel much lighter, too.

    Nope. Mine I posted above is new!

    Must be hard to keep a white bike clean.

    Yeah I saw a few new bikes! I just sold my pearl white 08' GSX-R motorcycle so it seemed like an appropriate replacement! I'm not worried about keeping it clean as long as everything is working right.

    Your GT Force looks awesome!!! I thought about getting it for the extra travel but I wont need that much on 90% of my riding. The Force didn't feel like it climbed as well on the uphills. I will be getting a dropper post soon.

    The white is not hard to keep clean at all, in fact my friends matte black frame is 10x harder to clean than the gloss white.

    Here is my resto modded 2 speed 98 Zaskar. It's my urban assault bike for crusining the beach or pulling the kids trailer to the donut shop.
