All the TTN serial numbers from 91-early 92 were u-brake frames.

Yup. And according to this, the 1990 model year as well.

Even the 1989 model was too if i remember right. But that Xizang was also fillet-brazed steel and built up with the Browning BEAST and XC-9000...

Hey gtRTSdh. I just noticed you were noting "U-Brake" or not on your serial number list. My old '92 Xizang LE, which is number 16 on your list, was definitely a U-Brake model.

Also, back in the day I had a friend who owned an all XC-Pro build Xizang LE of the same year and size as mine. His serial number was G16059. His was also U-Braked...


The U-Brakes worked amazing on those old GTs. Heavy... but strong, solid, squeal-free and reliable. I'm sure the ST weaved routing made all the difference.

Feel free to copy the list and continue it on adding any info you know of, my OCD went through the thread and collected all the info I could into the list.

Hey all,
i have been thinjking for a while to make a web page listing up Xizangs, a bikr like the bmw M car registry or YetiFan(except less exciting and low brow). Since I have a teeny bit of webspace, i thought, oh I could do that and brush of my bad html skills.

Would anyone be interested in that? Was thinking of just posting up a Picture, Country, Owner, Serial Number and build or variations on ionfo content on that. Something pretty simple and see where it goes.
Of course nobody may be interested or what their /bike details put on the net,thats fine.

thought I'd also add a page for Zaskar re-issue (as there is only 500 or less) then maybe move onto pyclones, Zaskars RTS/LTS etc and other models maybe one day or something.

Thoughts?
