What don't you understand about the full bike? :)

Some basic part sizes are:

73mm Bottom Bracket Shell
1 1/8" Headset
27.0mm Seatpost Diameter
31.8mm Front Mech Clamp

Everything else is pretty much standard stuff. I presume you've confirmed it's a 1996 from the serial number on the dropout?

Scans of the GT catalogues can be found on the following site, but the 1996 one is a poor quality scan and in German :lol:

Oh, and we'll need pictures of course!
