Oh, and when I brought it to the bike shop today to have it stripped down, it weighed 28.5lbs.

Like it, you should keep it.

Background detracts from the bike thought dont you think?

Actually, I might. At the rate I am buying new items to fit out the Schwinn, I suspect there'll be quite a lot of parts left hanging on the GT when I am done.

This is one of the few photos I have of the bike, I had brought it to Brisbane in Australia whilst studying there and decided to take a picture of it against the city skyline.

Here's an older photo of it with '00 Z1 CR Bombers before I decided to sacrifice fork performance for bike weight:
