    Cool-blue Rhythm Recent photos of my 2011 GT Force 3.0 Large

    I obviously have made a number of changes to its stock form:

    Origin 8 760mm 45mm Rise White Handlebar
    Truvativ 35mm 7 degree rise stem
    Component Works 1.5 degree headset
    Shimano XT Tubeless Wheelset
    Geax Gato 2.3 Tubeless
    203mm Shimano Front Rotor
    Cables Re-routed
    Proshox 3mm offset reducer
    X-Fusion Hilo with Remote
    XLC Quick Release
    Shimano SLX 175mm Cranks
    32T Single Speed Vuelta Chainring
    Bashwich Sandwich
    Modified N-Gear Jump Stop
    VP Pedals
    Inner Tube Chainstay Protector
    180mm Shimano Rear Rotor







    I ride the Force in the Bay Area, ranging from cross country rides in Saratoga Gap to full on downhill sessions at Carlmont. Does everything wonderfully.
    Just keep pedaling, don't stop pedaling.

    Great looking build. But don't you feel like you need/want more powerful brakes? I've taken my bike down DH tracks on Non-series Shimano brakes and I really felt they were lacking. Upgraded to SLX.

    And what's your HTA now with the works components and the offset bushings?

    Thanks!

    Brakes are not an issue for me, and the increased rotor size already added tons of leverage already.

    To be honest I do not know the true HTA because of too many variables. For example, the "stock" HTA was 69 degrees with a 2.1" rear and 2.3" front tire. But since I am using tires of the same size, but have reduced the HTA by 1.5 degrees with cups, and another unknown value with the offset reducers, I really cannot say what the angle is. My iPhone has an angle finding app but those have been known to be +/- 1.5 degrees so I don't even bother with it.

    Bottom line is, the bike feels waaaaaay better.
    Just keep pedaling, don't stop pedaling.

    Hello to all fans of GT! I want to show you my bike. GT Avalanche 1.0 2009. I bought this bike August 23, 2010.
    2.5 years, I traveled on this bike 20000 km. Use it as a vehicle to get around the city all year round in all weather, sometimes make a little trip into the countryside.
    Replaced in the bike the parts that I did not like. And that's what I did.

    Not mine, but a friends. Can anyone ID it? She says she thinks it's a 2009 Zaskar Expert, but doesn't match up with any pics I've seen. I'm not able to inspect in person.

    good buy man... I picked up a peace 9r SS and it was a real kewl bike... sadly the geometry just didn't fit me very well :-/ so I traded the frame outright for a surly 1x1 frame

    wish the GT would have fit... i've dug the triple triangle back in the 90's... even had an '88 avalanche... and the blue fade paint job was just awesome... but if it doesn't fit it's not worth riding :-/

    enjoy the new rig man thats A LOT of bike for the $$$

    thank you bro! since the first time riding it i fell in love with it.. i couldn't believe the previous owner let it go for so cheap. since i got it i've changed the grips for specialized ergo's and redline bmx pedals. i hate the wtb laser saddle!

    i find it interesting a lot of riders have them on their bikes but can't figure out why. i've been working on different positions and it still sucks. i ride a lot on my road bike with a fizik arione and think it's the most comfortable saddle in the market.

    Here is my 1996 GT LTS-1 that I've modernized.

    I've had several different full suspension bikes over the years, the best prior to this being a 2003 Jamis Dakar XC Comp (w/ Horst Link), but nothing compares to this LTS when it comes to an all around bike. While I ride mostly XC trails, I'll occationally hit some downhill sections and this bike performs flawlessly.

    Picked up this early 90's Timberline for $20. Bike is original and after a good cleaning,it came out nice. Added Kenda slicks and removed frot dérailleur. Bike is 1-7 now.

    Score! That looks really clean!

    That is early, looks like it is sporting a U-brake in the rear. I've got an '88 Timberline that I use as my tourer, looks like yours has fairly long chainstays too.

    Rumor has it that if those U-brakes are set up right that they are powerful enough. If you do end up replacing it, don't toss it, there are probably folks looking for one to complete their vintage build.

    Nice bikes there! On my side, I’m the happy owner of a GT Sensor 2011 for 18 months now.

    This Sensor was my first “modern” mountain bike since 1988:
    - I bought this GT Sensor after being hooked on a GT Force 3.0 rented in the French Alps in 2010 (“Mondial du VTT”);
    - Last year, I also became a fan of singlespeed 29ers and bought / built up a Kona Unit and an On One Inbred (the latter being a fixed gear commuter). Sorry I did not find a GT Peace SS 29er ;
    - But I still very much like to use my 26” FS Sensor like I did yesterday 20km south of Paris (cf. photos);
    - Alternatively this Sensor is used by friends/guests to ride together when they don't have a rig (and I use my singlespeed).

    I once tried a GT Force Carbon 26” and absolutely loved it… My 12 y.o. son has a GT Avalanche 1.0 XS… Yes, we love the GT brand!

    Concerning the specs, this is originally a Sensor 4.0 upgraded with the time (now 1x9 and lighter) – the details are there: Post your Sensor pics here!

    Smile 97 Avalanche: parts bin special

    I just picked up my new to me '97 Avalanche yesterday. the guys at my local REI built it with stuff from my parts bin.

    It rides different than my 29er, but all is good. I had a blast taking it out on its maiden voyage yesterday. I think the ancient Bomber fork really sets off the ball-burnished aluminum frame.

    I picked this one up from ebay.


    I also picked up some original decals, although they are not the exact ones needed (RTS in blue, while this was advertised as an RTS team, how to find out?). I have 3 forks for it. The mag21 pictured, an old Manitou 2 and a Pace RC35. I'm leaning more towards the Pace for the final build.

    I never was a fan of parallelogram forks. So that's out

    About the Noleen shock, how difficult is it to do the rebuild yourself? I have looked in the manual and it seems fairly straightforward. Only filling the shock with nitrogen is a hurdle as I don't have the correct needle (and of course the N2 supply). Would the needle from the mag21's work? Anyone tried this?

    Itg depends on the year, the early frames, the team was polished front and rear triangle with piggy back shock, but I think for 96 the rts-1 got the all that...

    Persaonnaly I think the mag21's are the go, or if you could find a mag21 SL even better

    And year parallelogram fork should never be put on anything ever, they just look stupid.
    All the gear and no idea.
