1st year 1994 fillet brazed GT Edge steel frame out of Excel tubing. Not sure how or when I'll get around to building this one up but it's a beauty.

Not sure yet maybe just go 8spd DA so it's period correct. Definitely light colored components and probably silver rims or black with silver sides. This link shows the original spec from 17 years ago

Silver & green works really well IMHO

DA will look the nuts on it too, looking forward to seeing this one come together

In 1994 there was a Spin wheel option on all the top of the line GT road bikes and mountain bikes.
