The 96 Zaskar was a hot bike for the buck. GT was feeling competition and published a special retailer guide highlighting the spec and value of their bikes compared to most of their competition. I've included a scan...some of you may remember some of the bikes listed. The 96 Zaskar frame featured some new butted tubing and it was the first year they used the bi-oval down tube. They redesigned their seat stay bridge to shave some weight and went to single bolt rear hanger.

I chose to set this one up with a rigid fork after I picked up the frame. I used a painted Bologna Lite fork that was a new take-off from a Backwoods that was set up by a dealer with a suspension fork. GT had had such good success with their ano colors that they went to their paint provider and had them mix and blend colors until they got them as close as possible to the sheen of their ball burnished ano frames. All the GT ano frames from 92 through 96 were ball burnished first and then anodized to give them that bright sheen and luster. I picked up a NOS Mavic 217/GT Hub wheel set with the red ano hubs. The rest of the parts mix on this bike M737 XT with Ritchey brakes, lever and seat post.
