The price! :lol:
No I joke, I thought it was 'cos the Zaskar LE was USA built and the Race was USA built (but from better tubing). Am I wrong?

All Zaskar up to 1998 were USA made before the sold out to an asian company .

I think LE were lighter .

The Zaskar Race was the lightest frame, saving 200-300g over the other two. I'm not sure that a standard Zaskar was available in the 'ball burnished' finish.

The LE was initially a clear frame and lighter build: LE Light Edition.
The laters LE versions had some CNC parts in it, or an integrated seatpost clamp.
The later asian versions I can't tell anything about those.

the 2000 zaskar race was the lightest so far ,there seems the be some
confusion as to what it was built with ,easton,kinesis ,or something else
my 2000 race is built with deore stuff and weights 22LB my mates 2000
(labeled easton tubed) built with xt/xtr and pace forks weights 24 LBS
the thing i would like to know is the frame number/model type id
or frame charecteristics

I have a 99 Zaskar with a Made in the USA sticker adorning the down tube. This seems at odds with several threads saying from 98 onwards they weren't made in the USA

The LE had a butted rear triangle where the normal (and I think all other aluminium GT's) had a plain gauge rear.
