Would it be considered vote rigging to link this to the Early Saracen Lovers Anonymous thread?............ 8)

What frame is it?

Hope it warrants a load of expensive trickery like that :)

I'm just trying to follow the rules....."PURPLE" and one must think that since this is the Bike of the Month thread that a "Purple" bike should win. Not something Ink blue, blue, pink or even a bike that's 40% blue, 40% pink and maybe 20% purple. Certainly not something that only has purple parts on it? John you should have tightened the rules or been more plain in what you wanted Bro! Enough of the campaigning. Since somebody else beat me to the Zaskar LE I had to rely on this 1991 standout and since this tends to be a fat tire crowd the only part not original from 1991 is the 2.0 tires that I added instead of the original 1.4 slics. Classic, Innovative, Vintage, Unique and Mint with around 250 original miles for an almost 18 year old bike .....1991 22" GT Tachyon enjoy
For those that don't know about this bike it was a forerunner to the 29er movement of today.
GT's VP of Product Bill Duehring wanted a ride that was faster than 26" so he created the 700D size which was sightly taller than a 26" wheel and slightly shorter than 700 but had a higher profile tire than a 26" but same outside dimension as a 700C wheel. You could run 1.4 slicks or knobby's or 2.0 knobby's on the same rim. Araya produced the rims for the bikes in the RM-20 cross section and IRC produced the 700D tires. GT had the Tachyon drop bar model the Continuum and Arette were flat bar models available with 700D wheels as well as their Quatrefoil Tandems.

Frame: GT 700D Crossover Tange Infinity DB Crmo with internal rear brake cable
Fork: Gt 2x4 CrMo with adjusters
Head Set: Ritchey Logic
Brakes: DC 986 front and DC u-brake rear
Levers: Dia Compe Aero
Stem GT Flip Flop
Handlebar: SR Modolo Bend

Crank: Sakae 52/42/32
Seat Post GT/ True Temper CrMo
Saddle: GT/Viscount regal type

Hey chill - this is merely the ante chamber - wait to see what actually gets polled up!

Tell us more about the shifters - are those Kelly Take-offs?

No they're Suntour Command shifters. They mount by clamp just behind the brake levers and it kind of a butterfly shaped thumbshifter. I think Suntour made them about three years.

Thinking on purple this is my Klein which is more or less similar to the one owned by Martin but a bit smaller. Anyway, as all of you know it is a 1992 HLF Attitude in front of Belgian Embassy in Warsaw with Flower Carpet in the background :)
