This is the first GT Psyclone that I ever purchased about five years ago. I picked it up from some guy with the nick "Psyclone" on MTBR. He had it for years and had never gotten around to building it up and was amazed when I posted pictures of it as a complete bike the day after I received it. Amazing ride! I use it around town and have hit the trails and even ridden it hard inside at Ray's ATB in Milwaukee. It's set up light with an XT/XTR parts mix with separate shifters and my favorite Ritchey Logic brake levers.

This one is a fillet brazed beauty...made with True Temper GTX tubes. This frame has an early 96 serial number and has the "groove tube" top tube but I've seen other 96's made of different tubing without it so think GT may have changed tubing sources and made a few changes sometime during the 96 model year.
