Just took delivery of a '98 GT Timberline, 18", red. 525 Reynolds Steel, not the aluminium version which came out the same/following year.

Going to single speed it using the parts I've got and are taking up room:
Mavic D521 on LX hubs
Project 2 forks (possibly RST Mozo Pro's)
DX V-brakes
Qranc risers
New GT lock-on grips
New deore cranks with a Middleburn DH ring, 36t
New aheadset

Edit:
Just bought a BB

Pics to follow later tonight, of the frame anyhow.
(This one WILL actually be built)

Got to trim cable length a wee bit and fit the rear cable through the eyelets:
EDIT: Did it at 11pm. Took the MrControl brake modulator thingies and put noodles back on. It looks cleaner.

I'm thinking of put my Panaracer Fire's on it with the red bead and donating my red Club Roost saddle off my Karakoram. I'll replace that with a black one.
My cranks are black and I've one pair of DX spds left which will make an appearance for photos :lol:

Edit:
Just bought a pair of Crank Bros 50/50XX with Red plates :D
