    New question here. Tell me something?

    I have a really old blue and yellow GT Talera, its back at home and wont be seeing it for a while and cant remember these details. Im all nostalgic about it and want to spend 200 or so to fix it up and make it a good comuter and fully rigid woods ride. But im worried, im pretty sure it has the right size head tube for an A headset but im not sure if the bottom bracket is removable for a new crankset and BB. SO thats my question, does anyone here know if thats changable???

    Also do you have any tips on taking off old rusted on seatposts which wont budge, havnt really tryed anything yet. and if you persevere will it come off eventually or do some just get completely welded?
    ............OK i'l admit it, i am a rambling idiot!!!!
    I wanna run i wanna ride i wanna tear down the trails that call me inside i wanna reach out and touch the flame Where the streets have no name......

    '01 GT iDrive 3.0

    Other than the saddle, it's completely stock. Still in great shape.

    Here's my new GT I Drive 5 I just built up

    Here some pics of the frame after I parted it out. And some pics after the build and a shot of the mechanical workings of the rear suspension.

    The ride is nice and the details on this bike are excellent!

    Looks awesome!

    Any idea what it weighs? I'm curious how the new idrive 5 compares in weight to an idrive XC.

    Yup, I weighed it just before my first ride.

    I have it built up not really paying attention to weight.

    - 03 Z1 FR coil
    - Sun Rhynolite wheels with Deore hubs
    - 2.5 Trailbears
    -Hayes mag hydros
    -XTR crank with 22-32-bashring/AC spider
    -X7/XTR front/SRAM 9.0 shifters
    -Time ATACs
    Rest of the peripherals are all OEM stuff

    The tubing is much stouter than the IDXC. The whole thing comes in at 32 lbs.

    I could definitely lose a couple pounds from the wheels/tires if I wanted. And another pound or so from the fork. Probable get it down to 28-29 lbs if I tried. But I weigh 200lbs and it seems that I get just as out of breath riding this bike as I do riding my 26 lb XC full suspension bike. My Dakar XLT - White Bros VT 1.3 20mm weighs in at 31 lbs and my AC1 - Z150 SL QR20 weighs in at 35 lbs, for reference.

    Love the ride!

    my GT's

    and here some more GTs... my pack!

    First one is a 1991 Zaskar set up as a roadrunner, adds up to 9.4kg! Built with some vintage parts: Paul rd, Hershey and Tune hubs, GT cranks, SE Pederson U Brake and custom Ti V brake, real design levers...

    Second one is a 1996 Xizang, my favourite ride! Fast and superlite 9.47kg.
    Amercian Classic hubs with Mavic 517, Paul Motolite brakes, Avid Ultimate levers, SRAM XO, RF Evolve cranks, USE post...

    And finally my wife's 2004 Zaskar Race. Almost stock, we removed the DC stuff straight away and now it runs nicely on XT RF!

    My 03 GT i-Drive 2.0

    The only thing stock is the rear shock and the cranks. I'll be replacing the front and rear deraileurs soon.

    Through Thick and Thin, I AM GT !

    I've had a GT since my Rock solid Tequesta!, WHICH I STILL HAVE! Now I have an IDXC 1.0. I got it when I got back from IRAQ in February.
    But Look what happened after two months!!

    They are replacing my Frame, because GT is still an awesome company and I love their bikes, even though they are owned by Pacific.

    I found out that this a real problem with this frame. It has a weak spot right there. Too much force, no weld. I'm sure this is probably going to happen again, and I'll have to go to a Ruckus frame. But right now, I just love this bike too much. Will have to take it easy on her from now on....

    How did you do that? In addition to the Ruckus, you should consider the idrive 5. It falls in between the IDXC and the Ruckus - definitely a more rugged frame than the XC, but lighter and pedals better than the Ruckus.

    I have no clue? Seriously. I don't do any crazy stunts. Have never went over jumps or drops more than one or two feet. I am 5'9" and 195lbs. I think I am just too fat or heavy for this light ass frame. But when I was in IRAQ, thinking about this bike got me through my worst times, so I bought it. Now, I wish I would have gotten more input, I would have went with a stronger frame.

    Anyone got an xtra frame they wanna sell?

    I second the Idrive 5 as your new bike. Definitely stronger with more travel but almost as efficient pedaling. And looks great!

    GT DHi 2002

    She is camera shy I had to sneak up on her to take this, man was she mad when she found out I took this of her. She says she will dump me as soon as we ride again.

    I don't have a web site to post a pic from. I have a special edition I-drive called the I2K. They were supposed to be available to dealers only. Mine is set up all XT. Just built another I-drive 1.0 with Sram/XT mix. GREAT bikes!!!

    19** Zaskar

    This rig is responsible for saving my flagging interest in cycling.
    After 20 years of riding the road, I never knew what I was missing out on - it's a blast.

    I picked it up second/third hand from a friend, although it's exact history is clouded.

    Any clues what year it might be?

    my retro ride

    heres my retro ride,its an LTS 1000 DS 98 model,it still has most of the original components, including the original rock shox disc brake. i have just bought a set of new discs, again rock shox disc brakes which i am bulding onto a new set of white industries hubs for the retro feel.
    its one of those bikes that still gets noticed.i think it is the orange anodised frame.
    you may love it or hate it, i know i do both at times!
