    K, thanks, I was suspicious because he has a weird list of components and the frame is repainted and it has been listed for months now; the dork disk was also a bit odd. Thanks guys.

    If it has a 1 1/8" headtube it should be an easy upgrade. If its the old 1" you might have a little more trouble.

    I love the Bravado...I've been looking for a late 90's Bravado or Karakoram frame to build up.

    Here's my '97 Xizang and my '93 Zaskar LE




    '97 Xizang (w/'95 decals) and my '93 Zaskar LE - both 16"

    Unfortunately I don't have the Zaskar anymore, but I hope to rebuild one just like it one day. But I'm so impressed with the Xizang right now. It's such a solid build and the '09 80mm SID is just an incredible fork compared to the original '98 SID it had when I got it.

    I bought the Zaskar frame back in college, then built it up. I don't recall where I got it from, but I feel like I ordered it out of a place in mountainbike magazine. I thought is was a '94, but GM told me it was a '93, which is close enough that the details get a little fuzzy for me. He has a purple one with similar looking white letters, so I think he's right. I haven't seen another Zaskar with those decals either. The Xizang is pretty awesome, though. I think I beat GM by a few minutes on that one! ;-)

    Recent pick-up....a GT drop bar with a ton of history behind it. As you can see by the serial number this GT Edge steel cyclocross frame was built for 2001 UCI MTB Champion, 3 time US XC Champion and six time US cyclocross champion Alison Dunlap. Fillet brazed from Reynolds 853 at the GT Tech Shop in Longmont, CO. This one has definitely been ridden. Shows a ton of head tube cable rub and a few other frame and stay nicks but overall is in very decent shape. It came to me set-up as a SS with mismatched wheels. I just gave it a good bath and put on some parts I had in boxes in the basement to get it operational. My 14 yr. old daughter will be the bikes new rider. Anyone out there got a set of old Cane Creek wheels so I can get it back to spec?

    Very nice. I remember that bike... I love "skinny-tubed" GT's.

    A bike with provenance, very cool. Even if it is a GT with skinny tires.
    Need: McMahon brake for roller cam mounts, Mountain Goat fork.

    Just pulled the trigger on a Xizang, not sure if I paid a good price (750 seems a bit much) but it has a new Sid fork and full XTR. Frame is perfect and it rides so nicely that I just couldn't pass it up, too sweet! Here's a quick photo, I can get some more when it's light out. So . . . what you think, fair price?

    BTW, how do you pronounce Xizang. Now that I own one, I should know how to pronounce it. And don't tell me it's something like "Zi-Wang" so that everyone laughs the next time I say it!

    Shhee-zung?

    * http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/Xizang * clicky on the little speaker button


    $750 sounds pretty damn good price, you normally pay more for just the frame

    See-Zahng, according to my wife who is a naturalized American originally from mainland China.
    I've always pronounced it as ZeeZang but then I'm a fan of butchering languages, including English.

    Really? are you sure it's perfect? From what I've read you may want to make sure you have the rear brake bosses well gooped with locktite. To quote the seller

    "I actually mean the receiver (female) aspect of the brake bosses that are part of the frame are just a bit stripped, by no way total or anything like that, just a bit."

    Good call, for some reason I keep forgetting that, but I do plan to locktite it, and as far as issues a bike can have, that is relatively minor to me as it is not imminent and is entirely fixable, but it sounds like it was enough to make you think twice, or did I simply snag it before you? Either way, I'm happy, it rides like a dream so if I ever do have brake issues I will probably just bolt on a disc brake!

    And lower your damn seat. If you really ride it like that, you just purchased the wrong size bike.

    I fail to see how that is any concern of yours, but since you pointed it out, the picture is off craigslist, and shows the seat post length from the previous owner. I have since lowered it, and considering that you have never seen me, the bike, nor me riding the bike, I hardly see how you are in the position to make any judgments regarding the fit, but I suppose that's why you placed that caveat in your signature.

    Decided to venture into some older GT fully's and have been searching for older RTS, LTS and STS's. This one popped up great condition from So Cal. I spent five ours working that coastal oxidation off the surface and swapped the saddle, grips and front brakes back to original spec. Air'd the shock and fork and it's a great ride. M900/910 spec with White Industries/Mavic 217 wheels. Original tires with the nubs yet and the machine lines are still visible in the rim sides. One down two to go.

    Just the drive side GT down tube decal....rookie packer put nothing between the wheel and the frame so that white decal was boogered pretty good on arrival The rest are all original. Like I said it was "that good".

    New to the site, just started the restoration of my 20 year old Tequesta. Got it for Christmas when I was 12yrs old, and had it ever since. Will post some pics soon. (SERIAL? T9012 A5 803)

    Might need some help along the way, I don't know all the specs when replacing parts.

    List of things done:
    Forks (suspension)
    1" to 1 1/8" conversion
    Stem
    Handlebars
    Rear wheel


    List of things to do: (need some advice)
    Crankset
    Pedals
    Chain

    might be as old as 93. Bikepedia has got a bunch listed. Frame looks a lot like my rebound. Is that factory paint?

    1995 Tequesta

    Just picked up a sad 1995 GT Tequesta for $40. I saw it at a local pawn shop, and i remembered having an "outpost", when i first arrived for my second post of Army duty in 1995 in Texas. I could not let it die. It's beaten pretty badly, but i'm going to make her whole again. It has a really odd mix of components, clearly not original. Sram Attack shifters, Tektro brake levers, Shimano Avilio rear D, and the front D is broken off (yes broken off at the arm!), the only original parts seem to be the wheels, handlebars, stem, and crankset. I'm fairly certain this year came with STX components?

    My LTS3

    thought i would post a pic of my LTS 3, I've had it since new and still ride it, although the last time i rode it ( 7weeks ago) i went OTB and fractured my upper humerus, but i still love it, and hope to be back on the trails soon.

    Well I found out it is actually a 97 or 98 and not extremely sought after, and yes the paint (was) original, which I was not too fond of. I decided to change it up a bit one day when I was bored, and it now has a brand new front Der and Brown Lizard Skins (not in the photo).
    Went to Dirtfest at Raystown Lake and picked up a ton of decals and thought they would maybe work for this bike.

    Love this thread like I love my old GTs...I've had a Pantera, an Avalanch and a Zaskar (in that order) before going full suspension with first an lts-1, which i actually loved more than any mountain bike i'v ever had but got seduced by the carbon sts-1 with it's OEM rockshox front disc brake.

    I always sold my old bike to pay for the new one which I now wish I hadn't have done, but I did pick up an old Zaskar a few years ago and restored it to glory, put slicks on it and use it as a city bike. For the full suspension I have a Cannondale Gemini that I hardly ride because it's 38 pounds and I'm getting too old. Looking at a new Force Carbon Pro since i want to get back into serious riding, don't suppose anyone has any feedback on taht model?

    Anyway, great thread, love the pics since i was brought up on GTs going back to the mid 90s! I'll post some pics after I take them tomorrow but I have a Zaskar LE POLICE bike frame if anyone wants it -it's been hanging on my shop wall since 2006.

    I have an 1988 Karakoram with the black and white crackle paint. The bike was alwasy very good to me and would bomb down anything carrying my 210 #'s. Never a worry about it integrity.

    I still have it up in my garage acttic. I think this thread warrants a visit and a relocation to the ground floor for an inspection and spin around the block. I know it is going to feel heavy compared to a 17# road bike and a 22 pound hardtail.

    Here's a 1990 Team Avalanche. I owned one of these back in 90 and raced the heck out of it. I had picked one up a few months back and needed to change a few things to get it back to original and then had a chance to pick up a frame that was even nicer off a bike that maybe had a few hundred miles on it at most. So here's how it sits now.

    Shocks

    48 yr old dusted off my 1996 GT Tequesta that has sat in the garage since 2000. want to begin riding again, nothing serious, casual dirt road, trail, etc. dont have and dont want to throw a bunch of money at it but want some suspension for my old, fragil butt.

    Can anyone recommend a decent seat post shock and fork shocks that are a good value for light trail riding?

    G'day everyone..

    Just after some assistance ID'ing the year of my GT Pantera. I think it's a 95, but I've never seen the same "Pantera" decal on another bike:



    Not sure if it was normal, but the GT logo & Pantera on the frame are under the clearcoat.

    It is fully rigid, with a "GT Cro-Mo" sticker on the forks. Came with STX/STX-RC gear, KORE stem & GT bars.

    I'm starting a restoration on it, so it'd be handy to know what year it is to get the appropriate bits.



    Cheers..

    Macca

    Matt, nice looking bike. It looks like it was in excellent condition, and pretty much original parts. I have one the same size, but it's beat compared to yours.

    Thanks Laffeaux--I think I recall seeing yours posted somewhere wearing studded snowtires. Or am I thinking of someone elses?

    A recent acquisition/project in the works and very close to getting it back to original.. First want to thank Linoleum for agreeing to part with this one. It's a 1993 GT Team Avalanche. Tig Welded and US built from True Temper AVR frame tubing. This was the last steel framed Avalanche/Team Avalanche that GT offered and is probably the rarest because in 1993 the industry experienced the explosion in aluminum offerings and that year the Avalanche model became the Avalanche AL and GT kept the Team Avalanche as a steel bike. This was my missing link to completing the GT Avalanche/Team Avalanche steel collection from 1988-1993. When I received this one it was wearing a 98 Indy for but I had the correct model year original Bologna Lite in inventory so switched it back to catalogue spec. The bike is full M900 XTR with M231 rims. Rich tells me it had obviously seen some sun because the "Team" top tube decals had turned white. The frame color is great but it's Imron so one would expect that to hold up well to sun. Many of the black ano parts like the headset, seat post and stem looked polished on the drive side due to the sun and original black on the left side. I have an original black post on the way for it and will be switching the tires back to the original Smoke/Dart combo.
    Enjoy.

    newbie here, so please be gentle...

    i am trying to figure out what year and model this GT is:



    i rescued it about 8 yrs ago from an abandoned bike rack in my apt bldg - manager was going to send the 5 or so random bikes on the rack to a scrap metal junkyard. this one came home with me.

    the stickers were mostly torn or scraped off but from what I remember they were black and red. the natural aluminum finish is a bit pitted and corroded from exposure to the salty air here in santa monica.

    i added the missing pieces (seat & post, front wheelset and tire, bar ends, replaced cables, brake pads etc...) and have ridden it off and on for the past 8 yrs or so. it keeps my other ride (94' fisher montare) company on my balcony.

    this is what i can tell from some web digging and inspecting the bike:

    serial number is MA5002460 (under BB)
    size 16 frame
    7005 aluminum
    rounded GT engraved cap at end of top tube
    integrated seat clamp
    V-brakes
    1 1/8" threadless Aheadset SAS
    LX front + XT rear

    here are some more pictures:









    my best guess is that it's a 1999/2000 avalanche? any input is greatly appreciated. she's overdue for a rebuild. hopefully this summer.

    JFYI...every newbie whose ever posted questions like yours in the VRC has come here seeking info that they themselves could find out and learn on line through some simple searches just so they could run off to craigs or eBay and sell off there bike.

    JFYI, i don't know you and you definitely do not know me...and unlike you, i am going to give you the benefit of the doubt and refrain making any rude assumptions about you or your intentions off the bat.

    while you may have encyclopedic knowledge of all things GT, i do not. i have been trying to figure out the correct year and model of my bike for over 3 weeks now and i keep finding conflicting information. my best guess is in my original post. if i could have determined with certainty what model and year my bike is on my own, i would have rather spared myself the joys of coming into an established forum as a newbie and 'meeting' someone as friendly as yourself

    no, i have absolutely no intentions of selling the bike. i've been out of the mountain biking scene for close to 15 years now, so much so that my bikes have become 'cool' again by default.

    my inquiry here is out of pure curiosity as lately, every time i ride the GT, other riders (much younger than me) ask what it is and/or tell me conflicting things about it. i also figured it would hopefully be a good way to try and get back involved with an online community of bike enthusiasts.

    Picked up a 91 Karakoram recently. Still has the original Ritchey MegaBites on it.



    All I have to do now is convince my friend who is now "boycotting fitness" to part with his Xizang, and with my Zaskar I'll have one of each. It will probably take mucho tequila.

    It appears to be a 97 model year Avalanche based on the integrated seat clamp and 7005 frame tubing.

    thank you, much appreciated...

    however, this just further confounds me. i don't know how accurate bikepedia is but all the 97 avalanches they have listed (LE, 01, 02) are made from 6061 not 7005?

    i saw in one of your previous posts that you mentioned the airfree tires site as a better reference - do you have a link to that as cannot find any bike model reference info on their site.

    i even emailed GT regarding the serial number and they were no help.

    There was an Avalanche model and an Avalanche LE. The Avalanche was 7005 and Taiwan built the Avalanche LE was USA made and 6061. It's not that confusing and easy to see when you have the catalogs...

    Nice GT's! I picked this up recently. Wanted one in my mid teens and finally, after 17 years i got one. Not sure what year it is but I'm guessing early 90's? A lot of it looks to be original Shimano LX. Working on getting a correct fork and some other bits. Still a fun bike to ride though.

    Could it also be a Riccochet? One of my sons has one that same color, and the decals look very similar.
    Need: McMahon brake for roller cam mounts, Mountain Goat fork.

    Don't think the Ricochet had the integrated seat clamp when this one was out. Just guessing but I think most of the LX parts with XT derailleur are probably original on 99GTCA's which would also indicate an Avalanche.
    Needed: 26.8mm XTR seatpost, blue GT/Grundig Jersey.

    the LX and XT parts are what were on the bike. the bomber was too but it has a 2002 sticker under it so i'm guessing that was added by the owner and not OE.

    assuming this frame is taiwan built how/why would GT put a sticker claiming 100% american built - isn't that illegal or something? were all their 7005 frames all foreign built?



    anyway to decipher the serial number? MA5002460

    (sorry about the barrage questions.)

    You ship a frame and parts into the US and build it there. Hence the American built sticker.
    It does not say MADE IN THE USA. All companies played that game back then to reduce the complete bike tariff paid on importing a complete bike. 5-11% on a 800 dollar bike increases the retail price drastically and can take your product out of an important retail price point. Yes the 7005's were all Taiwan at that point. GT only made frames in the US out of 6061.

    I posted the tale of my '92 Zaskar as a separate thread a while back:

    http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.ph...60257#poststop

    Here are some of the pics from the album in that origin thread:







    In my original post I neglected to share pics of the GT skewers. I've since learned those are kind of scarce, so I'll post a pic of the rear one here. I'd put the condition as somewhere between "Craigslist Pristine" and "Ebay NOS." If you squint, you can kinda make out the G and the T.

    OK. What's the story on the Zaskar's rear triangle?

    All I have to do now is convince my friend who is now "boycotting fitness" to part with his Xizang, and with my Zaskar I'll have one of each. It will probably take mucho tequila.

    Zip ties? Not on my bike!

    Want:
    650B rims or wheel set. 80's vintage 32 or 36 x 135mm

    '95 Backwoods, Candy Red

    I bought this from a friend about a month ago. It was pretty much stock when I got it and in great shape, too! I replaced the GT stem and flat handlebars with white Sette riser bars and a little shorter stem. I think the Panaracer Fire XC Pros give it a nice touch. I want to replace that Bontrager saddle with a white one sometime soon. The Shimano Alivo group isn't all that bad and the trigger shifters work very well.

    As this is now my "official" dog exercising bike, the Springer arms along with Z-adapters have been added.

    Springtime, what a great time of year!

    Old steel, 24 inch frame?

    I've got a small fleet of GT bikes ..... picked up this frame on the cheap, just cause I've no idea what it is. Note the chainstay u-brake and american bmx size bottom bracket. Any ideas what this this is ..........

    Appears to be a GT Bullet 24" wheel frame or perhaps an early Outpost 24" wheel frame. I think those are the only triple triangle frames that GT built with an American BB shell.
