Have heard for some time now that GT was bringing back the Xizang and it appears they are doing a limited release in 29er and maybe also 26.

Hmmm - may well have room in my life for a 29er now!

Looks like the Air Attack is back too:

Have to admit, I saw some video of the Zaskar Team Carbon 2011 the other day (lovely alloy effect paint job) and had to pick my jaw up off the floor. Wowsers. Sorry, I mean, erm, -bleeping- modern bikes. :lol:

GT really have got the retro style paint/graphics thing dialled - a little hint of the past with bang up to date designs.

I'm still sticking with the retro though.

would like to see photos of the whole frame. 26 er for me, no clown bikes please.

dont rate the bent down tube at the head tube junction...perhaps the 26er might not have that though...fingers crossed...

and hopefully 100mm fork geometry.....

any I dea when it gets released... I truly don't want a 29er, but if they release a 26in I may have to sell everything to get on... my new job starts ion feb and as soon as my debets started getting paid off, i was going to convince the GF that an old xizang was going to be bought... but now... I dunno what to do...

but if its a 29er, then it will be an easy decision...

29er would be a nice adddition, make a really good mountain touring bike.

Are these going to be USA built?

So it seems the 26in will only be in teeny sizes...
