I bought this frame new at the tender age of 16.
Back then it was built with m950, tomac maguras, Z1 bombers, Turbine LPs.
The Wheels are original, as is the stem and seat.

The opinion is still out whether I keep the 95 xt Cantis (the frame is technically a 95 frame with canti mounts, GT updated the shock and sold them as a frameset in 96), or put 96 Vs on it to match the rest of the build.

Thanks

I like that. Similar set up to my old LTS.

Titanium linkage? Looks it.

Nice colour.

that is sweet.

i'm about to make a hypocrite of myself here but keep the cantis. you have cable stops for cantis and bikes tend to look odd when they are not in use

Especially on fork braces when not in use.

Yes it has the Ti link,
The forks are a v brake one, the brace is in a box, thats why that one is a different colour.

So I guess I need a different project for the V's then?
Wifey isn't going to be amused.....
