hi..
i mostly ride an old GT arrowhead but for the past nearly 20 years i've owned this thing, was told it was a GT triple triangle, but nowhere does it say GT, so for all these years i have never known what it is..
sealed bottom bracket, 18 speed, i've changed the seat and i believe the forks may be original but not sure if it should have had rockshox..
all over sized alloy and very light..shimano gears etc..

any clues or ideas ??

Welcome to the forum :D

Tis not a GT. I'm no expert but to me it looks like one of the mass produced unbranded alloy frames from the early 90's.

I think from a quick look it is a 1992 model with the 'Stratocaster' cable routing :wink:

Definitly agree with kermitgreenkona88 - '92 Super Evo

catalogue scan from mtb-news.de - catalogue shows incorrect cable routing (picture shows '91 frame in '92 colour sheme) - regular '92 was having all cables in the top of top tube, in 2+1 system (not all 3 together)
