Maybe I can also show my GT.

If somebody can identify exact year I would be happy...90-92?
I`m original owner of this bike, but I dont remember year when I bought it.

Only rear rim and tyres has been changed. I also have orginal Tioga seatpost, only have to change it now.

Ah! GT did used to make great bikes, and that's one of them you've got there.! 8)

Shame they went off the boil for SO long. Seem to be finding their feet again now though.

Yep, your right there matey!!

My 07 Avalanche Expert is a nice ride, really nice, as I have finally tweaked it to my style; I am 'at one' with it now.

But.......if you offered me swapsies for a mid-90's Zasker with XT or a Xizang with LX/XT then it would leave my shed in a shot :wink:

I wish it would snow here; just one proper week a year would be fine :(

Gotta say, riding on ice with clips and straps is brave :wink:
