Lovely Bike, a Borrego, hmm don't think I've seen this model.
Does anyone know the full range of the GT family of atbs fron entry level to flagship back in the day?

Beautiful clean lines. Borrego? Wasn't that one of their top-end steelers ( True Temper? ) before it all got ti and stratospherically expensive?

As far as I could recall, the GT Psyclone was the only frameset made with True Temper Steel, correct me if I'm wrong...The Borrego is indeed one that I've not come across :?

Wrong!

Psyclone was only fillet brazed frame.

Other TT frames:

Avalanche
Richter 8.0
Bravado
Karakoram
Timberline

I think I have a review somewhere of the Borrego if you want me to have a look?

Yep, that's the 91 version. After that it was TT - until the shitty Alu waste of space came along...

BoyBurning, a magazine article on the Borrego would be interesting to see! Photo copy would be good - let me know and I'll send u a (bluepeter voice) stamped addressed envelope :D
