Hi I've been following this forum for a while. I ride mountainbike for 16 years now and I recently bought one of my dream bikes from back in the begining.
Its an GT STS dh from (I recon) ´97.
Only one tiny problem, its broken. since I know a thing or 2 about carbon fibre I decided to fix the frame. In the meanwhile i´m collecting parts for the buildup.
Sofar I´ve got a Judy XL painted red
some oldscool hope disc brakes.
A azonic shorty stem with a chubby bar.
Some old wheels with the gray ano Mavic 521´s
Any other sugestions are always welcome.

I´ll post some pictures later, also with some close ups of the broken area.

Welcome to the forum.

The STS range doesn't seem to raise much interest these days, but it sounds like you have the basis for a good build.

I have a (more or less) original 97 STS-2, which I've owned from new. I don't use it as much as I should, and I considered selling it a while ago, but have now decided it rides too well to sell.

Have fun with your project, and pictures of the repair process would certainly raise some interest.
