That is one super-clean tasteful weight-weenie build. I really like it. Those forks look great with that frame, and the modern parts work well too.
Have you tried it with M950 XTR though?


No, I didn't try. I think M950 will be too much grey on the bike. M970 black, is nicer with this frame I think

8) It's the dull Ti finish that does it for me.

Yep Ball Beaded, can look nicer than polished or burnished 8)

Should have a 'Hotrod' category BOTM as this would be pulling a few votes.....unless hmmmm

I love GTs and this is one nice build. Good job!

Just one question: Why is it so clean? :wink:

it's coming, just have to build it up.

haven't decided if it's going to be a 2x8, 1x9 or 2x9 setup and I'm thinking of having a rigid old gt fork on it...

would work really good in the winter season.
