I recently picked up an `89 GT becouse I`ve always loved the triple triangle frames that they used back in the day: sorta` remminded me of the frames on Ducatis, which I adore.
Any other GT fans out there?
mine was stolen back in the day, and i've always missed it.
i replaced it with a similarly spec'd kona hardtail, bit I've always been on the lookout for another gt.
since I don't really have a need for a mountain bike anymore, I might just end up with a gt gtb/
I have a 93 gt zaskar built up with modern xt components and a kooka crank. I ride every once in a while and even do some races on it. Here is a pic of it with my old xtr crank
and the sweet rasta crank
I also have this gt passage frame and fork. I was thinking about using it as a cross bike but will probably sell it instead.
oh man i used to absolutely drool over the gt lineup when that triple triangle junk first came out. i would ride to all the bike shops in the area and just stay for hours looking at them. the best was bringing home the annual catalogs, and pouring through them until i drifted off to sleep. when you're 14 and the only source of income was cutting neighbor's grass, that's all you could do.
/off to find old catalog scans

I drooled over it for the longest time. It was the only anodized frame I had ever seen. Then I bought a Klein I was scrolling through some of the catalogs posted above and I had forgotten about some of those crazy rear suspension designs people had come up with. I miss walking into a bike shop and only seeing trek and specialized.
i had this exact bike. if anyone can find a better picture you win internet points, heck i would just be happy with the color name!!
this is it, but its the wrong color. i would love more pics of the blue one above:

My zaskar le will be getting a different fork this week. I have a decent 80mm rs duke fork that I am going to try out for a while. I also installed a set of larsen tt's last week.
TaintedRide it looks like a karakoram to me but I'm not a 100%
The gap lines on the fence probably aren't helping either.
To actually contribute to the thread, I'm out of the GT club now, I cracked my road frame's headtube over the winter and have since moved on.
