    AZ is amazing, its difficult to explain how beautifully technical and dangerous the terrain is!

    Imagine your favorite downhill in the forest - However the trees are 12' tall cacti - All the trees and bushes are full of thorns - the earth itself is nothing but a bed of baby skull sized rocks, broken shale rock, and hard dirt!
    Then spackle the environment with 4 different types of cacti. One that actually resembles the film Critters and rolls into the trail like a ball of nails.

    Its awesome! until you fall!

    My GT Peace

    Here's my GT,
    Wasn't sure how SS would feel after being used to gears for such a long time,pretty much stock standard, I have recently changed the front to a 29er and I must say I like the ride.
    My other bike is a hardtail but I keep coming back to my SS.

    man.. am dying to post up a pic of my own bike but i have not met 10 posts =( just reg yesterday.

    anyway since i'm accumulating posts.. my ride as follows:

    2000 zaskar LE
    2006 SID team
    Avid BB discs
    FSA carbon team issue cranks w/ egg beaters
    XT/XTR mix in drivetrain
    XTR lever/shifter combo
    amercian classic hubs with mavic 517s
    thomson post
    ea70 stem
    crank bros iodine 3 bar
    selle italia flite

    am looking to replace the following:
    fork - maybe a fox float 100 RLC/manitou R7
    drive train - am running 3x9, tinking of changing to 2x10 XT groupset, which will also replace my Avid BB discs (which will cost a bomb)
    tinking of swapping crank brothers risers for easton flats, possibly ec70 flats

    any thoughts or recommendations? i live in singapore, would appreciate it too if anyone knew how much the above upgrades would cost

    Yeah, those anodized blue zaskars are my favorite. I ended up with a blue and gold one though.

    GT Pantera model 95... or so

    Hi guys. Here is a pic of my old GT Pantera (re-painted 2 times due to heavy scratches from... hard falls )
    I bought just the frame from a guy during 1997, and i added everything else by myself. Original color was blue and worn out, so i removed it and re-painted in GT yellow.
    Weels: Mavic 217 SUP + DT Hugi spokes + Shimano STX-RC hubs
    Fork: Manitou Magnum R
    Brakes: Shimano Deore XT + Deore LX levers
    Derailleur: Front and rear Shimano STX-RC + STX levers
    Cassette Sprocket: Shimano STX-RC (HG, 8 sprockets)
    Crank: Deore LX
    Pedals: Shimano PD-M434 (SPD)
    Steer: Icon + Ritchey
    Headset: Orbit FSA XLII
    Saddle: VETTA Lasar leather + kevlar + titanium rails
    I like very much the frame, is long (i feel very safe in strong climbs) and stiff. Rims are heavy worn out after 14 years of use from the pads of V-brakes. It is a chance for an upgrade with disk brakes!!! If i have money left over
    Glad to meet you GT freaks.
    Greetings from Greece

    Its a fun bike to screw around on. Fork works out well, it has an astonishingly low A/C length, so it handles well on the frame which was designed around a 45mm fork. The 120mm manitou xvert has roughly the same A/C length as an 80mm rockshox psylo (only point of referrence I have)

    Some jerk bought it on Craigslist and stopped using it, so I punched him in the nuts and took it from him.

    Sound familiar?
