    Nice bike

    Yes GT still makes bikes, however they were purchased by Dorel Industries in early 2000's.

    GT is for Gary Turner, the founder of GT Bicycles.

    That bike seems pretty clean and good shape, you could easily ask $400 for and then negotiate down to $200 (they'll think they are making a freakin' deal ).

    Honestly this bike needs to go ride. Don't you know anybody who's possibly interested in that bike ? You could even turn it into a nice commuter if you ditch the Raptor tires.

    Dallas CL had a '96 Tequesta listed for $45 a few weeks ago. I believe the ad was up for awhile...

    Thanks man, yea it's in great shape... so $200 bucks huh? I might hang on to it for a while the way gas is going up, etc... It needs a tune up bad though some new grease, etc, etc... I am in Marietta, GA. How much does tune up's go for now? I know the RockShocks might need some oil or something. I was amazed that the tubes blew up with air it's been hanging up for 12 years now and been through dramatic temperature swings.

    In my experience tubes will last forever in those conditions. Tires on the other hand, you should check for the sidewalls rotting...

    Will do, but I think they are cool... What tires should I switch too? I would be riding on street and off-road.

    Well you can do it all by yourself. A tune up as you describe could go for as much as $50, so what you could do is spend those $$ at your lbs on tools and parts you'll need to get this baby back on track do it by yourself. If you ever have a question, just ask over here, the forums are full of helpful fellow riders. Plus your lbs is your best friend for taking care of your bike. Your fork should be very easy to do, you can even find the complete manual online that explains step by step.

    Nice man! Thanks for the info... The back gears are a little slow to change what might be causing that? Is there a tune up DIY link somewhere?

    You should probably check your cables and housing. They might need to be replaced or cleaned up.

    Visit the website of Park Tools for many tutorials and infos, and YouTube vids.

    It isn't hard, just have to learn. I already build up 4 bikes myself and full overhaul on 3 others. Read around the forums and you'll get much more knowledge then.

    I'd pick out a bike shop near you and go in and ask them to adjust the rear derailleur/replace the cables and housings and suggest some tires for the sort of riding you are going to be doing. Unless you have nice wire cutters and are fairly mechanically inclined then replacing the cables and housings and indexing the rear cassette can be a bit of a challenge.

    From those photos the tire rubber looks to be in good shape (is it supple?), if you are going to be doing mountain biking part of the time and riding around the city at other times, personally I'd pick up some tire levers and some city tires and swap them out if you are doing these activities on separate days.

    If you have multiple bike shops fairly conveniently located, online rating services might give you an idea which is friendliest. Unfortunately some have attitude.

    Hey, yea my Wheels have the quick release built in already, that is a good idea to just switch the wheels and tires all at once quick like... I will try some grease on the gear cables they look like they are in pretty good shape.

    Thanks for all the info guys!

    No, no grease on cables please !

    You can always use some Teflon based lube, liquid-wrench has given me good results, but you should not have to lube cables normally.

    Zinn book

    I highly recommend picking up "Zinn and the Art of Mountain Bike Maintenance"
    I picked up an earlier version in college and I went from knowing zero about bike maintenance to completely rebuilding my '94 GT backwoods in 1999. I just picked up a newer version a couple years ago (my old one grew legs and walked off somewhere along the the way ) and definitely referred to it a couple times while I was building up my new Specialized Rockhopper SL SS 29er (i know, not a GT, but i like the ebb.)

    Of course it is why would I post a non gt? Lol GT is all I ride! Its a 07 idrive 5. Absolutely love the idrive suspension. Also thanks the picture came out really nice for a stock nexus s 4g camera (5mp) no editing either

    I'm not familiar with much go GTs lines except for seeing the triple triangle. My tunnel vision stems from ignorance.. But thankfully I am still able to learn something new everyday. I'm a bit backwards in cellphone technology... I still use a Treo 650 that only has less than a megapixel camera and lousy lens. I really need a new phone, new bike,... Err.. Let's just say I really need more money.

    haha I used to have a Treo too, years back though, well the picture doesn't look so good on my computer screen (non-hd) as it does on my phone (super amoled).
