    Funky GT Stem

    I know it's not treasure, but was wondering what model GT it was from...any ideas?














    Guessing an '89 or '90 model from the stamping.

    I'm having some difficulty finding an '89-'90 GT with that stem but with the cantilever brake cable pulley, '88-'92 seems about right. Here is an '89 Mantis with a very similar stem. A very nice bike, btw.

    M412, I'm thinking the GT stem is from a bike quite a bit further down the MTB scale than that gorgeous Mantis

    You're prolly right. I just like the Mantis.

    I think I found a GT model that used that stem. Owner thinks it's an '89.

    The two models I remember that were that color during those years were the entry level Outpost, and the Karakoram. They had so many interesting and unusual paint jobs, that the plain red sort of stands out.

    Edit: Given the rise, it was probably not an Outpost, as those had a lot of rise. The short length probably indicates a smaller frame (14" or 16")

    My mom's 86 Tequesta had a stem like that, but in black. Her frame was small too, as she's only 5'4".

    Thanks guys.

    M412...looks like you nailed it



    I only grabbed it 'cause it looked interesting, (and it was $8).
