Hi OSH. Thanks for the offer, but I’m looking more for a low-maintenance finish like paint/lacquer/anodising as the frame is for my all-year commuter (I’ve got a crack round the bottom of the seat tube/bottom braccket junction on an 18” factory lacquered 1998 Backwoods frame - bullet-proof finish). But if nothing else comes along soon, I’ll give you a shout as not sure how much longer my frame will last. Cheers, Ian.

Are you looking for frame only or interested in a complete bike too?

Hi. I require just a frame. I have to swap all the components over from my commuter frame (18" Backwoods) that has cracked. I bought this frame second hand off eBay in 2003, so has many, many miles on it. That's why I want another GT frame - they're so well-made!

With the larger 72mm BB, I am intrigued how you cracked it?

Hi. The frame's given up at the weld at the bottom of the seat tube/bottom bracket shell (73 mm). The crack has run about 3/4 of the way around the the circumference of the tube at the top of the weld. I presume that it's just fatigue from tens of thousands of hard-riding miles. I run slick tyres at high psi for commuting to work, so the frame will be stressed more than running big volume tyres. I'm still riding it, but will have to scrap the frame soon.
