    Thanks

    I would, however, I won't be seeing it for the next three weeks because of a business trip. As it currently stands, it is approximately 30 pounds, if not, less. It feels very lightweight. I already ordered for it a Spinergy Xyclone wheelset, an XT Shadow RD, XTR chain, XT rear cassette, Atomlab General Issue flat pedals (the thinnest cast aluminum flat pedals on the market), so that may make the bike somewhat lighter.

    New question here. Here some more pics of my GT LTS

    Can some one tell me where I can get the plastic cap that goes over the tube which holds the front derraileur?

    My 2002 GT Palomar

    Its a 14.5" frame, but since the frame is the only thing left i think it has kinda grown with age (and some huge forks & a seatpost)... I've had this bike 6 years and i still love it... Im glad its a 14.5" frame, the bigger ones are ugly-er, im doing myself no favours still riding a kids bike i know lol!

    Anyway, less words - more pics.





    Dont worry, it was cleaned after i took the pictures.

    *Sorry about the insane size of the pictures, i dunno howto resize them.

    Agent....bro you need to drop that saddle a tad a level it out. You must be constantly sliding forward on it. Don't your wrists and hands get tired of the constant pressure?

    I have a 1992 GT Avalanche and a 1997 LTS-1. The Avalanche is my baby. I bought her when I was 15 for 800 hard saved dollars from Buck's Bikes in Austin when it was on Springdale Road. Made in USA, wicked awesome paint job, and XT/DX parts. The LTS-1 is a work in progress. I bought it on Craigslist in Sept for $275 and am still trying to get the suspension to work correctly.

    One day old '07 Peace 9r.

    I couldn't resist the classic GT triple triangle/ pierced top tube..... and in steel!
    $450 Canadian OTD, did I get a good deal?
    Studded tires will be added a few days, the stock Wtb's were swapped before I bought the bike. Some Nokian touring treads came on it. Lighter wheels and tires will be going on in the spring.
    I Love the single speed, v-brake simplicity. JH.

    maybe too late but: - but those arent available.nowhere. try to find some aheadset caps (118 or maybe you'll need a 1,5" headset cap cant remember the sizing) and fix it with a removable clamp no steel steerer star please (because its thin alloy) but something like the hope head doctor or such.
    else get some thick cabron plate and use your hacksaw...

    My 94 Karakoram

    This is my all time favorite bike, it is still so much fun to ride. Bought it brand new, added the Q21R soon after and have had to make very little changes until recently. Right now it is completely stripped and I am trying to decide on a a powdercoat color. As of now, white is my choice.

    The right side 7 speed brifter went south so if I can't find another, I will update to an 8 speed drivetrain. If anybody has one in excellent condition, please let me know. I want to stay with the original LX derailleurs and cranks. I do not know why that is so important to me but, it is. I have also picked up a Marzocchi Z3 80mm travel fork to replace the Q21R.

    I hope to have it complete for Mountain Bike Oregon in August.

    Sorry but your Avalanche was not made in the USA. Back then the frames were built by Toyo in Japan and final assembly was done there too

    Here's a head tube shot of my 92 Team Avalanche, Note the sticker.

    2001 GT Zaskar Team hardtail

    Here is my 2001 GT Zaskar Team I just picked up last week off of ebay. Already started riding it after some minor tune ups at the bike shop. This is in damn good shape. I am so happy! I got it all for about $650. Any comments about the components would be appreciated since I am not a component expert.

    Sweet ride! I have the 2001 GT I-drive team frame and the GT ZR1.0 road frame. It's something about the paint scheme that just looks awesome. Have you weighted it yet? Should be pretty light. Those Zaskar are very well made so you'll have it for a while. Probably forever. $650 is a great price for the whole ride.

    Yes I weighted it and it came in at 22 lbs. Nice and light! I actually almost bought a 2000 Zaskar LE I-Drive that someone was selling locally here on craigslist...it looks very close to the 2001 GT I-drive team. The only thing that stopped me from buying it was the frame was a size "M" which is was too small for me. That 2001 GT I-drive team is SWEET though!

    Hey folks...I've only lurked & dropped in for research in the past, but will try to be more friendly in the future. I've been a GT fan since I bought a Karakoram (beyond my budget as a freshman in college) new in the fall of '87 ('88 model). It's gone through a lot having been turned into an all-around bike & sticker-disguised early in its life to avoid campus theft...still peeling some of those off! anyway, here are my GTs today:

    the '88 Karakoram...(currently being reformated to a dedicated urban machine)


    a '95 or so Karakoram (I think) I picked up of Craigslist this summer...still all Deore LX/XT, rattlecan paint


    an Agressor that followed me home from work one day (hoped it would be good for my wife to ride)...


    and my 1995 Zaskar LE:


    Love 'em. fit like gloves for over 20 years now!

    02 Avalanche 3.0

    Here’s my 02 Avalanche 3.0 with my winter setup, the weather in Germany sucks right now!!! I’ve been riding her since new in ‘02. The GT Avalache 3.0 has been a grate platform for me as it has grown along with me from entry level to not so bad on XC and Full Mountain trails. Everything has been replace except the frame it self: Bombshell Revolution wheels with Panaracer Fire 2.1 tires, BB7 Brakes, RS Tora U-turn forks, FSA Head Set, Shimano ratchet shifters/brake levers and LX Deore Derailleurs, Trek ride moniotor, Titus seat post, Specialized seat and EA70 Monkey Bar...

    Happy Trails!!!

    Here is my 2008 Peace 9er SS. My first GT, 9er, and SS. Great bike for the money. Maybe next year I'll go for the Zaskar 9er if GT introduces them in the states.

    thanks for the comment! the brakes suck. they are tektro auriga comps, hydraulic, first of all they dont provide very strong stopping power, like i really have to grab on the brakes to make them work, but then again i just came off a bike that had some incredible hayes 8" discs, maybe im not used to the downgrade....

    the rear brake makes serious noise when i get it all warmed up, and then do a long technical downhill, it starts to shake and make a clicking sound when its super hot

    I need to take it back to the shop where i bought it and see what they say.

    Not many GT Marathon threads on here so I thought I'd join in. I picked up a new 2008 Marathon 2.0 last month for song. Coming from a Luddite hardtail XC background it's my first dualie. Weather hasn't been so kind to us here over winter, but I did get a couple XC singletrack runs (frozen mud) and I enjoyed the capabilities I glimpsed. I have since modified it slightly with some 2" risers. The cockpit length seems huge for a Medium frame, which suits me as I'm taller, just need to lift the bars a bit higher to match the seat better. Really like the way it has a full Shimano LX kit on it, from hubs to brakes.

    Good job! '07 Peace 9r + '95 Avalanche

    I've been lurking on this thread for quite some time. GTs have been among my favorite MTBs for quite some time. My first was a '94 Tequesta with a crazy liquid blue paint job. I bent the top tube in a wreck about a year after buying it. The Avalanche below replaced that bike.

    I figured I should share a couple of my GTs. First is an odd looking '95 GT Avalanche, purchased used in 1996. In the attached shot it has a Girvin Crosslink fork. I've since mounted a red Marzocchi Bomber Z2 with a BB7 front brake. This bike has morphed from a singletrack bike to a commuter and back.



    The newest GT in my bike shed is a 2007 GT Peace 9r trailside at Tsali. A Marzocchi Bomber fork lets a BB7 disk brake fit the front. The back wheel still has a linear pull brake. The '08 models came standard with disk brakes.



    Not pictured is a '92 Timberline SS and a '96 Karakoram. Once I get some shots made, I'll upload them as well.

    My two GTs

    I bought the Tequesta in the Spring of '88, and the '00 I-Drive 1.0 in the fall of '01. The Tequesta is totally different than new, but the I-Drive I have left functionally stock.

    Whoa!



    1996 GT Olympic Time Trial Track Bike
    Possibly the most advanced technology in a bike of its day, was built for the 1996 Olympics the bike was built for a specific rider as far as there was no opportunity to alter the seat height almost all the components on the bike including the wheel set the cranks the handlebars head set and frame set were of a proprietary design. This design of bike proved fast but did not win the gold medal and its racing career was cut short as the rules governing bike designs were changed resulting in the bike becoming illegal the top-tubeless design was reported to allow fast although somewhat shaky ride. All original bike.

    I found this on the internet and thought I might share it with everyone....awesome

    My GTs

    Good to see some older GTs - still the best looking hardtails around. My newly (yesterday) converted singlespeed Zaskar a 96, and an 03 Ruckus. Looking back at the Zaskar X pic, you can see how the Ruckus grew out of the Zaskars.

    Hello fellow,

    Take a look at this site : http://www.xentis.com

    These wheels are very stiff ones but if you crack them it's a big trouble to manage...but they very good looking ones

    I Suggest that you remove all of the wall art in your living room and hang these babies up there.

    Sweet bikes- both of them.

    Can we get a close up shot of the rear disc brake? My GT XCR 1000 does not have disc brake mounts. How did you get the rear disc brake mounted?

    A few pics of my two babies

    First is my '06 iDrive 4 3.0

    This is still my current race bike. Wheels are still stock but everything else has been swapped out to trim weight.







    Next is my playbike,

    She's an '05 Ruckus iDrive. Fox 36's and Chris King hubs are the highlights. This is the most fun bike i think i've ever ridden!







    Hope you like!

    Hello mate,

    I have one of them standing on my living room, believe in me. The one if the carbon wheels...

    I bought the frame back in 99 and it was the first version of the I-drive as you should know. At that time the frames didn't have disc pivots...so as I always wanted to do that upgrade I bought one rear triangle at egay and voila...disk brake

    I'm loving the result, I have one of the more beautiful bikes that I ever see... in my house

    Your bike is also nice...and you can improve it a bit more if your wallet approves that.

    Regards

    I acquired my XCR 1000 frame for free. I built it up on the cheap just see if I liked how it rode. Unfortunately, mine has the infamous cracked seat post. If I do anything more with my iDrive, I have to deal with that first. Otherwise I might XTR it like yours.

    Have you heard of any successful iDrive seat post welding stories? Perhaps I should search this forum or start a new thread on the topic.

    Gt Bb

    I have just ordered a Campy Crankset for my GT Tequesta 1991 Fixie project. I noticed the BB was a little gross....what would you suggest I get to fit the new cranks? It originally came with a Shimano cartridge, Bottom bracket height -- 11.75 in.; 29.84 cm. I see a used Campy one on Ebay....how will I know if it fits? What have all of you replaced yours with? Thanks for the help
