Any gt experts out there? Just bought a GT frame but it is stripped and the guy I bought it off had no info about it at all :?

Don't know how old it is as it does have a disc mount on the rear.

The serial no is IGT3F15429.

Any help would be much appreciated and help me decide if I should hold onto it or sell it on.

Many thanks guys :)

Can post pics if that would help?

Quite modern, Been re-finished,

Could be a Avalanche or something, Hard too tell for me from that angle.

Did think that it was a bit more modern than I wanted when I picked it up. May have to sell it then for some funds for the retro project I really want!!

Tho the wife would just do this to me :roll:

Something mid 90's really steel or alu, just something to give a bit of time and love to like I did when I built my Manitou all those years ago...... :)

I'd guess that is a 2004 Avalanche.

Ok thanks for that. May be one for me to pass on to someone who likes the more modern GT's.

Thanks for all the help guys.

What's the code under your bottom bracket casing Jimmy?

I suppose I could build it up as a rigid commuter?? :?

Any suggestions on groupset and forks?

Cheers you guys are leg ends :lol:

Should be an 03 made at the Ideal facory in Taiwan so likely more of an entry level frame....but then it does appear to have an integrated headset?

I did email GT but I have not heard back from them yet. I'm just not 100% sure what to do with it. Local powder coaters will do it for £15 so paint and build or sell on :?

Never did hear back from GT on this, and still have the frame in my shed.

Am contemplating building this up to have some fun on it, got my eye on a bike on evil bay at the mo that I could donor a few parts from.

Any advice what forks would be best on this, am a bit out the loop with modern sus forks? (don't have a huge budget tho :roll: )

80-100mm fork

this headset:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/140616194773? ... 1497.l2649

31.8mm TP front mech

27.2 post (probably)

90mm stem

180/160mm discs

That's what I build my 04/05 Aggressor up with anyway! You could remove the rim brake mounts before getting it p/coated too... looks much cleaner. Nice ride too!

although yours might be a bit older and looks like it requires a BP front mech :oops:

Thanks for that Mr Rats. Missed out on the donor bike on ebay so am now on the look out for parts but don't really have much in the way of budget :oops:

Hope I can pick up a few cheap bits and get it rollin soon.

:D
