After the mess up with the small Zaskar I needed to buy a rigid GT quickly to heal my pain :lol:

So, after a quick browse of the For Sale thread, enter the lovely GT Tempest of Dave_H 8)

This will land with me tomorrow, and as you can see, will have a smattering of blue ano thrown at it along with a fesh decal set.

As for the drivetrain, I have lined up some Deore XT, which should also be with me tomorrow.

I am aiming to have it complete for a full unveiling at the Peaks meet on Saturday :D

Pickle would you take some more pics of the frame? I've got a GT in the cupboard that I bought on a whim and haven't the fogiest what it is.
