Welcome to the sale of my '91 GT Avalanche
It has been my dream to own one of these bikes since I was a teenager and I've loved every minute of owning this bike.
This is a well looked after example for a 22year old bike. Since owning the bike I have stripped/cleaned/rebuilt the bike and use it on a regular basis.

Since being in my ownership I have fitted New Gear Cables/Brake Blocks & Schwalbe LandCruiser 26x1.95 tyres/Bottle Cage bolts,Shimano M520 SPD's & the chain was replaced by the previous owner otherwise everything is original (to my knowledge). Other than that it has had alot of TLC spent cleaning it up and many hours being enjoyed.
I would prefer not to split this bike as it would be such a shame but depending on interest I might.
Slight surface rust (shown in pictures)
Odd creak from handlebar (rides fine and hasn't got worse)
Some stickers have been partially worn off
