I have to say, GM is doing a fantastic job, As a RetroBike newbie it is fascinating to see how a brand progresses and I've learnt a lot.

Plus the bikes are Beautiful, Which really helps

Cheers

I'm really enjoying all the effort GM is putting in to this.

My vote is to lock his forum when done and leave it there for posterity.

I have a massive soft spot for GT's (which is why I have a Timberline, a Pantera and a Psyclone), so love the thread. Can't wait to see what else GMXXXXXXX has floating around!

Cheers for doing it!

I have been enjoying the thread too.......BUT........anyone else getting bored of looking at Avalanches & Psyclones? I know there have been a couple of other models but was expecting to see the whole range or close to it

Don't know how factually correct this is but worth a read: http://sidewaysandfallover.blogspot.co. ... s.html?m=1

Nice bikes, with 17 steel hardtails and 3 zaskars so far........... would be nice to see some fully suspendeds or team bikes (team member rts in gm's sig?) in the mix for the final 10 days.

GT set a benchmark with the RTS being one of the first designs to combat bio-pace, domitated the XC field with the Xizang, had a world championships winning LTS "boomerang" (Nico 96) and were using thermoplastics before anyone knew what they were.

GT have a progessive history and some landmark designs but I guess this thread is more about gm's collection than a snap-shot of GT's evolution.

Interesting thread nonetheless.
