GT's are quite forgiving. The top tube v's seat tube measurements aren't quite(nothing like) how kona, for example, lay things out. As long as the frame size is close to what is 'ideal' for you, other adjustments can be done with a cheap stem or longer seatpost.


Any idea what size I'd want for a 30 leg??

I would start with 18". Then, it's a case of post up, post down to get it good for you. Then, look at the reach situation which, will mean trying different stems.bar set-ups.
cheers.

That's great - I'll look for an 18" Zaskar. GT's are measured to the TOP of the seat post, yes?

GTs are measure C-C, so an 18" Zaskar is about 20.5" C-T if I remember correctly.

I picked up a 16" Zaskar (16" is the official frame size, stamped on the rear drop out) - and turned out exactly right with a 135 stem. A 2" higher top tube would have distinctly unpleasant consequences!
