There always seem to be plenty of the bigger sized GT's about, I need 14 or 12.5 and there are very very few of those about, as these were often bought for teenagers which got abused/left out in the rain for years and then scrapped.
You looking to sell this frame? what is the seat ctc out of interest?

Nice bike,

iv a 96 model pyclone in team scream colours. true temper tubed.
she's sadly cracked through the top tube next to the head tube. sniff sniff.
i was too tight to let her go to the bike shed in the sky so i kept er.

man its the second pyclone i dusted! the water bottle boss on the down tube came out the previous one! sic.

fastest rig i ever raced- true as!

97 model year frame....True Temper OX Gold was the tubing choice/availability for part of the 97 year. I too have a 97 with the same tubing. Love the ride.

At some point during the 96 model year GT must have run out of Groove Tube top tubes. I have one 96 with groove tube and one without and all the 97's that I've seen don't have the Groove Tube.
