It's been a long time coming, but this week I finally got the cable hanger for my GT (thanks to leem.c). This was my dream bike wa back in 1992 (when I was 12!). Spec is MK1 XTR (inc the Ti cassette) apart from XT U-brake and headset and GT qr's. 3D forks, flip-flop stem. Mint.

That's really cool, especially with the flip flop stem. Remember seeing these back in 92 in the GT catalogue, ah happy days.

Oh my god, I never even looked at the name!

HI SHAGGY!!

I think I prematurely single speeded my Bonty ( I did wreck the rear wheel ). I've just built a fab new 36 spoke M950 rear so I may gear-it-back until December. Be good to ride with you soon and show you the new trails in Leigh Woods.
I have an old U brake if you need it for spares dude.
