It looks completely at home with the different wheel size too:

Here's my 700c GT Zaskar commuter bike from a few years ago. I used all spare parts from the garage and had to make extenders for the rear brake:

Does look quite happy in that guise, although I prefer it as an MTB. :)

I rushed in here all excited looking for a retro 29er.

Alas, I must now go back to drooling over Bianchi Projects.

That's rather cool, but I won't be doing it to mine anytime soon.

Wasn't there an RZ (Road Zaskar) model built in a hurry for the Tour de France and later put into production?

I believe the ZR range of road bikes were 'Road Zaskar'.
Do they still make them ?

There was also the ZUM (Zaskar Urban M... something) hybrid.

GT still have some road bikes, but I don't know about the ZR.

There's a blog or youtube somewhere all about how it came about. It's a great story and I think they even won a stage of the Tour.
