Kev did you buy them as a pair with the LX? I assume as the rims match they came from a mid-spec LX equipped GT.


Yes - they same from Orange71's GT Lightning or Zaskar. Can't remember which.

Hmmmmm, the LX hub on the back wheel is an M565 which is 1995. Obviously that isn't original to the frame. '98 GT Catalogue mentions GT brand alloy hubs but doesn't have any pictures.

There are (as far as I know) two versions:
One Hadley type
and the GT type

The Hadley type is lighter ans has sealed bearings. They can be recognized by the lazered lGT ogo and text "made in the USA"
The GT version has only "GT" on it.

from memory it wasn't sealed bearings or particularly high quality, but OK.
