Just thought I'd post a few of my late 90's downhill bikes, there are more in various stages of building.

For starters:

1998 GT STS Lobo (standard spec)
1999 GT Lobo 1000DH (in ultimate period spec, still have all OE)
1998 Santa Cruz Super 8

Further to these I've got a 1997 GT STS DH, GT STS-1, Santa Cruz S8 circa 2001, 1997 GT LTS DH, 2000 GT DHi, 2003 Intense Tazer, 2000/01 Schwinn Straight 8, 2001 GT Zasker (15.5in), 2009? Whyte 19, maybe some others I've forgotten as they're in bits...

Hope you like what you see.

Love the GTs'. How big is the front chainring on the Lobo? They look top notch even compared to the newer DHers available now.

I'm pretty sure, from memory, they are 44tooth, definitely AC ring. I'll check it out and correct myself if I'm wrong.

Thanks for the kind words and appreciation everyone...

I'll get some more photos of the other stuff up soon...

nice, i sold the GT's back in the day but i still prefer the Santa Cruz overall, maybe it's the simplicity of the design by comparison. very cool collection 8)
