In honour of gm1230126's 30 Days of GTs thread I'm going to enter my 91 composite Xizang. It is believed
to be one of the original dozen (+/-) proof-of-concept bikes that Maurice Lavoie in Whistler welded up for GT. There are some minor variations from the frameset that GT officially sold in 91 (decals, geometry, welds, lack of serial #).
Have swapped out the post and headset to XT to give the bike a full XT groupset since the pic was taken. More pics/details in the build thread.
Was told by the forum GTmeister that the trailside 2nd pic previously posted didn't really show the bike, and it was suggested I replace it, so.....
My buddy out front of the shop in Miami where he picked up the bike in March 06. It was built up and hanging on the wall, and had never been ridden (still hadn't been ridden when I acquired it from his brother). Hairless didn't really suit him. Chemo's a bitch.
