    left is original 1996 Avalanche, Middle is unknown year-- can you help ?
    Rt is my ( I'll never sell it ) 1992 Avalanche. With some Trek 8500 wheels. Can you see a pattern here ? :-)
    these are the only MTB I own.




    Can you ID the year of this one ??? Serial SAS6H0122
    I bought as a bare frame, and put Trek parts on it for my son. Any info would be great.

    COuld be compeltely wrong cause hard to tell from the pics...
    left is 96?, middle is pre 96 but post post 92 (so 93-95) and right is 98?

    But if you got is as a bare frame could be anything aluminium for GT.

    I've had this almost a year, and I've never posted it. I've been really happy with this bike.

    Ha ha..! That bike is long gone, sadly. I think I only had it for a couple of years.

    Oh man, I loved those Syncros cranks. I had an Avalanche that was kitted out very similarly to this rig, in '98.

    Yeah. Unfortunately, the alu insert with the taper cracked on the drive side. A few years later, I sold them (mentioning the crack) for $150! I bet you didn't have the Votec forks :)

    Sweet AV :cool:

    When the BB wears out, swap out the crankset for a Hollowtec=II setup. It makes a world of difference

    Nice bike. I purchased this second-hand bike for a reasonable price. Progressively I'm going to upgrade my bike. I hope it in a near future :D

    Here is my 2015 GT Sensor Expert - 29er conversion.Attachment 1117949
    Plenty of room in the rear swingarm for 29er tyres.
    Geometry is not bad - even with a 340mm BB height. Has plenty of standover clearance.
    Has a Fox 34 Fit4 Boost 130mm 29er/27.5+ fork, 1x10 - 32t oval chainring + (11-42) and a Giant remote dropper post. Weighs around 13.95kg.
    Finished bike works the best it has ever been - climbs like a mountain goat - hooks up on stuff that I used to have to get off and walk up. Rolls over most terrain with ease. Very good on the downhill as well.
    :thumbsup:

    That's an interesting setup LukeSPOOK, what's the frame size and fork offset?

    This is a medium framesize and 51mm fork offset.

    Here is my 2013 Karakoram 29er. Bought new, changed just about everything:

    Rockshox Recon Silver RL
    RaceFace Ride Cranks (1x9 with Cromag 38t chainring)
    XT 9sp derailleur
    SLX 9sp cassette
    WTB Pure Race saddle on RaceFace Ride seat post
    Shimano Deore 615 brakes on RT66 rotors
    Mavic xm119 wheels with Continental Race King tires

    I ride this bike commuting and trails. The 38t ring is for commuting, I have a 34t that I plan to swap for trails. The wheels were necessary becasue I had two Alex rear rims that became so bent they were unable to be trued. I really like the 1x9, may go 1x10 when these parts wear out.

    Finally got it (mostly) done. Cleaned everything and touched up bare spots with some primer to protect.
    New:headset bearings; wheel bearings; chain; cassette; crankset/BB (now a 1X7); shift cable; tires.
    Original:seat; rims; bars.

    Will probably swap out the handlebars for something more hand friendly. Also may go back to my WTB speed saddle.



    I know some would advise against putting money in this bike but I love it and have no intention of retiring it (granted I don't do serious singeltrack). Rides good as new, I won't be so long next time doing the maintenance.
