I love the triple triangle on the GT's. That is a beauty! Only blemish being that face off stem imho.

Hello and thanks! I love the looks of the GT edges too and hope to come across one so i can add to my collection. Do you know how to decipher the Serial numbers on the bottom bracket or where these were made?

I see that you have a few bikes in your stable also. I have a 95 Mongoose IBOC team stx that I am also working on. Love this site! :D
