Old guy bought bike new in 2001 and rode a couple times never off road and did some stuff to make it more comfortable for him hence that barstool like saddle. Finnally after 2 or 3 months parked ti never to ridden again. Finally found CL after getting his 1st computer and here we are. I am going to look @ it tonight. Is it worth $200 his asking price????? Is it a good platform for an uber clyde?
The bike seems like it is the right size from what I have test rode in the LBS. If it is not I will not buy!!!

I had a GT when i started riding, it was rock solid. Offer him $150 and see what he says.

To my semi-trained eye, that looks like an XL size aluminum framed GT - possibly a Backwoods or ????
Big Pete - how big are you exaclty? I am ~6'4" and I had an XL GT bike from around 2000 thought it felt small for me.
But the owner of that bike has added one of those crazy double pad seats (which lots of people like) and a higher rise stem and bars.

I can't determine from the pic -- suspension fork? If so, generally not a good idea for an uberclyde. I have a GT Outpost ('95?)-- no suspension-- and rode it hard. I'm 5'10 & 245 ish. Enjoyed it till I found my road bike. (Still have it, can't bear to part with it.) Enjoy...

It is an XL but Im a fat 5'10" so it fits great brought it home need a cleaning and some mild adjustments but I think it will be a fine steed!!! I will post a thread with pics Before and afters in a couple days!!!!
Congratulations. I hope it serves you well.
6'4" here and I have an XL size GT Transeo aluminum frame.
Yeah, it does seem a little small. Very rideable though.
