This bike marked the end of an era at GT. The 1993 GT Team Avalanche was the last GT complete steel bike sold with XTR components. By 1993 the industry was changing fast with nearly half the bike offerings about 400 retail having aluminum frames and most major lines having a titanium model or two...steel was pushed aside. In 1993 GT did not have an Avalanche model they instead had an Avalanche AL and the Team Avalanche was their top steel offering. TIG pulse welded in the US out of True Temper tubing and sold with a Bologna Lite chromoly fork or Mag 21 Rock Shox option. Complete XTR except the headset. 93 was also the year that Shimano finally brought out a Low-profile canti that wouldn't interfere with a riders heal so GT switched their entire line to canti's in the rear except the 14.5" size. Huge thanks go out to forum brother Rich Krakora who spiffed me this great clean bike for his pick up price. I think he scored this off craigs in AZ. He beat me too it I know that.
