Best skip bike ever, in the whole history of the world, ever.

It's an STS, top of GT's range mega bucks when it was new. The carbon fibre is in fact thermoplastic.

Very nice, I don't think I've seen one with the titanium linkage before, only the aluminium LTS.
I think this was the later version as the first didn't have the aluminium headtube, but could be completely wrong.
It's still carbon fibre but they used thermoplastic rather than thermoset plastic to keep it in shape (or whatever it does!).
Check the linkages for cracks and the bb shell and all aluminium parts thinking about it! BB shell especially, inside and out.

I sold one of these in good'ish condition for £220 a couple of years ago, just the frame and shock.

Going by the position of the linkage I'd say 16"
