    Singlespeed GT Zaskar Team 2001

    Can't seem to access the post you ss thread.

    Anyways, finally got my SS rig up.

    All I can say is riding SS is SuperSex.
    Still need to work on the climbs though hopefully the leg burns will make it happen!

    Classic Zaskar Team! drool! What year is that frame?
    The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    Yess ETR-B. Running 2.1 at the rear, the clearance is about the same as the chainstay to the tire.

    Still Zaskar crazy after all these yrs. Got 3 bare Zaskar frames hanging for years in the shop. Seeing your SS Team give me the desire to build them all into SS. Would be quick light build. Thanks for provoking the memories............Nice.

    Really cool! The frame is so different from the majority of what we get to see in the ss world.

    really? the GT triple triangle has been around for decades and i see it all the time, on all types of bikes. it's one of the most easily distinguished frame designs.

    It is, definitely, but I never thought I'd ever see a Zaskar in the classic team colours built up as a singlespeed. It's great!

    Cough cough, but true "classic" GT team color to me was either ball burnished aluminum or titanium from the early 90s. That's only 10-year young color scheme.

    Anyway, many riders turned away from zaskar since the ride was so harsh - but I find it best suited for an SS application. So yeah, thumbs up.

    I swap in a Middleburns UNO set, notice my chain stretched quite a bit, took out a link and kiss my tensioner goodbye...until....cross fingers.
