Well it's like 10 degrees below 0 Fahrenheit as I type this so it's good to think bikes as it's even to cold to ski. Todays post is a 1998 GT Psyclone. You Brits will appreciate this one...fillet brazed from Reynolds 853. This frame has some construction and design changes that are different from earlier year Psyclones. The 97 and earlier Psyclones and Cyclones had 28.6mm seat tubes the pierced the 31.8mm top tube. The 1998 has a 31.8mm seat tube with a 28.6mm top tube. I think I grabbed this one about a year back from a guy in California. I stuck with a tried and true build with spec older than the frame. Call me old school.

This frame came with yellow, silver and white decals so I guess you could say fashion/looks entered into the spec. Does that ever happen with you? Noooo. Yellow Judy long travel, Control Tech Stem and San Marco Saddle. Silver on the head set, bars, seat post, crank and rims.

GT cranks with GT Ti BB and XT rings. Mavic 217's with XT hubs. XTR SL shifters, derailleurs and cassette, XT 737 canti brakes and my ever favorite Logic levers. Bike is a great ride! Now for some finished shots.

I just couldn't bring talk myself into using more of that ugly blue/grey XTR stuff when the silver bits look so good on this one.
