    GT SS Bike Stolen, Please Keep Eyes Open

    FWD From BONC LIst


    *Please spread the word*!

    Yesterday someone broke into my home and stole my single speed mountain
    bike. The didn’t take my road bike, fixie or full suspension mountain bike
    only my single speed. The bike is really not that nice but has huge
    sentimental value. It is a hand made frame from the GT factory in Santa
    Anna. As many of you know, the factory was closed in 2000 when Pacific
    bought Schwinn/GT so it can’t be replaced.

    The bike was made in the product development shop by a friend during my
    employment at Schwinn/GT, so it is very special. It has a long “road bike”
    looking top tube/front triangle. The rear triangle was more BMX style so
    the bike looks stretched out. There is *not* the traditional “triple
    triangle” GT signature design but it has a larger gusset where the seat tube
    connects to the top tube. The front fork is a Sid race (circa 2000, blue).
    The front wheel an older Mavic Cross Max with the rear a Cane Creek (large
    flange hub). It has Easton Monkeylite Carbon bars and XTR brakes. If any
    one sees the bike please let me know. I offer a cash reward and no
    questions asked.

    Other stuff was stolen but I really only want my bike back. Please, Please,
    Please keep your eyes open and do let me know if you see any bikes that
    resemble the description above.

    From one cyclist to another – thanks!

    Sorry to hear your loss. As a (pre-Pacific) GT fan, I'll kee an eye in the Denver area where there are tons of GTs. Sounds like a special one off, and these special ones tend to go to Germany, so best if you post a picture with some signature features (sounds like obvious features, but need visuals).

    Also, post this in GT forum, as well as retrobikes.co.uk. It IS a retrobikes to be had.
