Wow - the nicest GT I have seen in a long while. Build is perfect apart from the violet skewers... I love those Ti Onza Barends and the first generation ControlStem.

The decals suggest this is model year 93. 94 had orange/fire decals. Techically, 93 and 94 were the same.



Thanks mate.The previous owner told me these are repro decals so don't know what the 93 decals look like.

I do like those orange decals though, I didn't know if they were o4 or 95.

I'm well impressed with your GT so much so i'd love to go for a ride on it ;) so i'm trying to get some money sorted in order to buy one even more so since i discovered my pro tec isn't retro :cry: , as it's at least a 1999 model :cry: which is very annoying because i love the way it rides and it's got the triple triangle frame which i just love the looks of so i'll be after a GT frame or full bike to replace it with ..

Slightly updated the Xizang to more useable components and fork.
