Agree - 94ish Avalanche... I think they came with that flavour of LX crank in 94...

Great buy for £25...! The mech hangers usually go for a tenner plus post!

All alu GTs had top tube gusset up to 1995. Bottom tube gusset does apply to 96 models and later so your frame seems to be 96 onward. However frame has welded canti stop so I'm pretty certain it's 96. It can be Avalanche or any 7005 aluminium GT. Good frame none the less. Serial doesn't help here as they're rather random product line numbers in opposite to US made frames. Last four numbers appear to be month and year but they are definitely not.

Manitou 2's are from 93 alright.

I agree with Radoslaw on this one. The gusset configuration at the head tube points to 1996 onwards and the frame number on the 7000 series frames doesn't have the same obvious month and date like on Zaskars.

It could well be an Avalanche, but could equally be a Backwoods, Terramoto or Tempest.
