Little update. now running 517 Citrons on Lx hubs with Schwalbe Rocket Rons, a higher rise Kore Aheadlite 3 stem and a refurbed damper cartridge in the forks. Big thanks to Fluffychicken for that one :D

Hi
I had one of these as my first real mtb. I loved it. I still have the frame but it has a crack around the top tube about an inch aft of the head tube, but I never wanted to get rid of it. Glad to see yours still going strong.

Hi Badger and welcome to Retrobike :)

You have either been unlucky or are a very hard rider to break one of these, I've always thought of Gt's as pretty much bombproof.

Keep an eye on the for sale forum and see if you can find yourself a Gt project to relive those early days :)
