Reckon it is pre-1998, as the 98 model year STS had a black headtube as opposed to the silver one you've got. I would hazard a guess that its a 1997.

Probably a regular 1997 STS. As r32 mentions the 98 models had black headtubes with the exception of the 98 STS-DH. GT didn't recommend the 97 STSs be used with triple clamps FWIW...

Actually having looked at the catalogue it's more likely a 98 GT STS DH > 1998 GT Catalog. Frame looks slightly beefier than a 97 plus backend looks slightly different, might have an old disk mount.

Strange that a DH model has a mount for a front mech.
I thought the GT's ran BB mount AC chain devices? :?

I'm also not so convinced about the rear disc mount. I have a STS disc frame and it's nothing like that. I have heard of people drilling their frames and fitting a BETD mount though...

Hi there,
Just having a shot in the dark, but do you still have this frame and if so would you sell it?

:)
