Really pleased I found this site, inspiration to get back on 2 wheels after a long break - hope you like the bike
Well here's a few pics of my new (to me at least) GT after another blast around the local trails, pretty chuffed to finally own one of these and it rides much better than I expected. I'm not entirely sure of it's age, I saw a similar Zaskar posted, in the same colours, which I think was a '97?
I was admiring the remake GT have done of these in the front of MBUK recently, and a few days later this appeared for sale from a friend at work. £200 is more than I wanted to pay, but I knew it wasn't too badly knocked about & has some nice kit on it.
Slapped some neoprene boots on the shocks, which were hiding in the LBS bargain bin for £5, just 'cos the mud around here is really gritty & I worry about the shocks (they have quite a smooth motion at the moment, so want to keep it that way). Also, I got some new tyres, was looking for another set of amberwalls, but the originals were shot & I really wanted to get riding. What I really wanted is a set of the old brown-walled conti XC's I had on my one of my old rides - loved the tread on those things, not sure if they'd fit in with this ride though.
Planning to get some new decals & seatpost/seat/stem, perhaps sticking with a red seat & black post & stem. Don't want to go overboard on the red (possibly have already..). Anyway I'm rambling now, here's the pics:
