Apologies if this is wrong place to post, but I need some help identifying a bike. Hopefully the retro gurus and GT affectionados can weigh in!
Does anybody know what year/model this bike is? Far as I can tell, it's a GT Avalanche, but I can't find ANY similar images on Google with the brilliant blue
paint job. It has "all terra" and "triple triangle" stickers on it. The seat stay also has a sticker that says "Triple Butted Cromoly" and "Made in USA"P1170249

I saw it on Craigslist and ran out the door to buy it just for the seat post, but it's got a lot of other sweet XT parts in the mix. (Yeah, the forks need some work
I'd never ridden a GT, and riding it back home is when the magic happened. It handles wonderfully, has clearly been untouched for at least a decade, and I'm kind of in love with it!
The girlfriend says it has to go soon (too many bikes), but damn... I want to keep it.
Can anybody help give it a name and year?
