Spooky Engineer RD has an unhealthy love for mid-late 90's GT's. I do too.

He scrounged this frame from one of our mutual race support buddies who had had it in a garage since '98 and was planing on giving it to me to seal our bromance. Unfortunately, it's too big for me by a scooch, and too big for him. 100% of the proceeds of this machine are going toward buying us a new lathe, so do yer damned part!





Paralell 74 60cm c-t 54.5 c-c ST, 55cm TT
410 chainstays, 13.5 headtube... higher bb than normal.... Grrreat crit bike, and the excel tubeset is both light and wonderfully springy.

Wacky numbers for a road bike, but this bike was built for one of the Atlanta olympic trackies as a road bike... Yamaguchi built. (Most likely for Carney)

Fork is a kinesis aluminum, 44 rake. (this bike is rather unstable... but in a VERY fun way!)

Full DA 7700 9v group (except for Cane Creek brake levers)
11-23 block, 172.5 cranks

NOS cinelli 13cm Stem and mod. 64 40cm bars.

Wheels are about as fantastic as you could ever need, 28h 2x DA7700 hubs/DTrevolutions/alloy nips on OpenPro rims.

Everything except for the frame, fork, seatpost and saddle is NOS.

full specs:
Frame- GT ‘Edge’ fillet brazed
Fork-GT Aluminum
Headset- Shimano Dura-Ace cartridge
Stem- Cinelli XE 6082 quill stem, (26.4) 85d x 130mm – silver (new)

Cranks- Shimano Dura-Ace 172.5mm (new)

Cassette- Shimano Dura-Ace 11-23
Front Hub- Shimano Dura-Ace 28H w/skewer

Rims- Mavic Open Pro 28H black (new)
Bar Tape- Cinelli Gel-Cork blue (new)
Tires- Michelin 700x23 PRO3 Race black/dark grey (new)
Cables/Housing- Shimano (Dura-Ace) MSystem/SP41 (new)
Rim Tape- Michelin light (new)
Tubes- Michelin Ultra Light (new)
Brake Levers- Cane Creek SCR-5 silver (new)
Bottle Cages- Elite aluminum with aluminum hardware silver (new)

This was someones training bike for a season, and then became a roof bike for 2 seasons on the Shaklee team, so there are some paint scuffs...
That beautiful blue paint still makes me have unpure thoughts though...

Slightly flexible on the price, but 7700 is getting harder to find... and a Yama-built Excel tubed 1996 race bike, well, shit, it doesn't get much better. Especially when you buy something that our man RD has built. At the tender age of 25 he has wrenched on more world-cup winning MTB's than anyone working today except maybe Doug Hatfield. A PRO build it most certainly is...

Thanks for looking. And please, make it go away. It's so pretty it keeps me up at night...

By the way it's got to be a 94 model year frame as that's the only year they were built out of excell tubing.
