Looks great. I am new here and only joined because I've always been a fan of the old GTs and I see there is a lot of talk about them here and pictures and knowledge. I am now in the position to obtain them (if I can find them) and I have an STS and just got a Lobo frame (carbon) that I am putting together... but I am not going all original as it is way too hard to find the parts.

I have the original Azonic saddle, but it is HUGE and I hate it so I am not using it.

Hey dude, welcome to this awesome site/forum. Thanks for the nice comment, I'm trying to get as near spec with my build the only thing I cant find so far is the wildgripper DH tyres in 2.2 so I've got the 2.1 version, oh and have hope discs and hubs, the original saddle for the alu version is the SDG bigboy which I have fitted to mine, I dont know if it was different on the STS Lobo?. Yeah I'm also a big fan of GT's too!

Hey, there are some tires on ebay but they are 2.25

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Michelin-Wild-G ... 19d07858c1

Here are some pics of my bike getting together and the seat. This saddle came off my STS-2 , not from the lobo.

preloved be cool to see your lobo, when shes done. oh and thanks! As for the AC cranks and chain ring, time and luck....... and lots of it, it took me around 4 months to find the cranks and i'd say another 2 for the chain ring.
