Had no choice but to grab this one as nobody was watching. GT Tech Shop built fillet brazed GT Edge steel frame. This one was a truly custom frame. Not built in the even sizes as were offered in the catalog but done as a true 57cm c-c for the original owner who was Doug Martin the team manager and coach of GT's mountain bike racing team in the mid 90's. Beautiful frame in immaculate condition

I've got a mint Dura Ace 9 speed group that I took off a frame almost a year and a half ago. Also have a Mavic Cosmic Elite wheelset with very few miles so I'm thinking that will be the build. Haven't decided yet if I'll stick with the chromoly fork or use a NOS GT threadless carbon fork that I've had for a while.

Oooh, lovely - and just my size!

I've always fancied one of the late 90's Lotto team bikes.

I've got 2 fillet brazed frames, the MKM and the Dave Russell. The clean smooth lines have always appealed to me since I saw a lad in school with a Brass (or Copper?) plated pre-war Claud Butler. Gorgeous!
