Can anyone tell me the years in which the original (early '90s) GT Tachyon was produced, and provide any detail regarding model year variations (colors, etc.)? I've just been overcome by a sudden lust for this oddball hybrid.
Thanks for any help!
Produced around 1991-1993 I believe. The earlier ones are the purple colour, the latter, the hideous "midnight aurora". I have two friends with them over here in Melbourne, Australia. Both run 650B wheelsets on them as change-outs from the original 700D size. Both are the purple colour. Odd, but cool. One even runs the original Suntour Command shifters on his.
I have both a Tachyon and a Continuum, yep.. in that Midnight Aurora paint scheme... I have them both with the Suntour Command Shifter setup... gotta keep them old school looking...
