    What does the future hold for my '96 GT LTS

    This is not my primary bike, but it is my auxiliary, and since my other bike is a hard-tail, I really would love to keep it in running condition.
    I am concerned about how long I will be able to keep it on the trail, since there are many unique parts, I presume, bearings and such, and a scarcity of places to get replacement parts.
    Is anyone else out there in a similar boat? Are there any essential components that may be ultimately unavailable?
    Thanks!

    I am not sure what parts are unique and ultimately unavailable but GT did make a ton of these bikes so I would imagine spares are available from the usual sources, Ebay, or a parts bike from Craigslist.

    The smaller parts that are brand/model specific may be available for some time from BETD in the UK. As far as other things, such as the shocks, Risse has some replacements. If you are looking at replacing something like the rear swingarm parts (chainstay, seatstay) then your only bet is Craigslist or Ebay. If you are looking to replace an elastomer on such an equipped model, you are SOL.
