I've finally managed to complete the build of my 20th anniversary Zaskar.
I've gone for an up to date build using the following spec.

Stem - Thomson X4 90mm 10deg rise
Headset - Cane Creek IS-3 (started with a Hope integrated but it doesnt fit)
Heaset spacers - Hope plus a Hope Head doctor
Grips - GT Lock-on, update have fitted ergo grips to avoid numb hands
Saddle - Selle Italia Gel Flow (Ti oval rails)
Seatpost - USE XCR carbon shock post with SUMO adaptor clamp to fit oval rails, update now have fitted a Thompson seat post
Seat clamp - HOPE Red
Front brake - Avid Elixir R 185mm rotor
Rear brake - Avid Elixir R 160mm rotor

Although I say it myself, its a lovely ride. I'm really enjoying being back in the saddle again.

Part way through the build needed to get some shorter cap head bolts for IS fitting

Nice build. I wonder how much GT would charge for this if they built it ?
Why did the headset not fit ? Was it a problem with the hope or with the frame ?

Your views on these re-issued zaskar frames please ?
I'm surprised they had integrated headsets ? And integrated seat post clamps ?
I'd have thought GT would have re-issued say a 1992 style frame.
The frame looks like what a zaskar frame would look like if GT were to make a 6061 frame now rather than a "re-issue"

Anyway, nice,no expence spared build.
Now go and get it dirty.

nice silver - red theme going on there.

the bolts for the rear brake adapter could do with shortening.

That looks nice. You ought to swap out the yellow decals for the red ones to match the red theme you've got going there. Here's my '92 with a few red bling parts...
