Nice GT. Although not usually a fan of their steel and aluminum frames (Carbon being the exception), that looks nice. Light?

y33dave 08-16-09 08:02 PM

I need to weigh it now that its all built up... but I think it's probably right around 25LBS. I'll update as soon as I figure it out!

Curious why you opted for the Chris King BB? I was gonna get one...but then I had a second kid.

y33dave 08-16-09 08:07 PM

The BB that came with the FSA was all f'd up... and I to be honest - I wanted the color, but didn't want to spend the money on the FSA ceramic.

That CK is smooth like butter! and damn near bombproof from what i've read!

ed 08-16-09 08:11 PM

That's the only reason I wanted it too:lol:

There are a few other BB's out there that are ano...I'm not sure how many in red though. It's PIMP...I like it. I'm a huge fan of the Zaskar though. GT's frame desing is very refined looking...but still pretty mean.

I especially like their take on the Chucker.

y33dave 08-16-09 08:29 PM

yah.. I'd always wanted a Zaskar. My first real mountain bike was a 1994 Karakoam - no shock - and built solid like a rock! But I drooled and drooled over the zaskar right next to it. Never could afford it...

as life went on and I got to be a better rider, on a full suspension... I still coveted the Zaskars, I could never justify the purchase.

Now... I just don't care and I can afford it. I have 5 bikes in my 'stable' and this one is my pride and joy. I built it myself, picked ALL the parts. :thumb:

All it took was me to purchase a 2008 Zaskar Expert Disc (Taiwan Kinesis Built)
http://aspenmaintenance.com/images/08_Zaskar_XL1.JPG

Wich I quickly sold to fund the build of this bike.

In the meantime... My first Full Suspension was a 1996 Trek Y33 - what a BLAST that thing was to ride!
As it so happens - I found a local guy selling his 1997 Y33 the other day on Craigslist for $100!!!

I couldn't pass it up :twitchy:

Bought this in Germany from an Army officer. I had sold my Rocky Mountain before moving there and got this a year old for $1000. Nice ride. Needs brakes bled and I still haven't gotten it done. Still trying to tweak the air adjustments and rebound speeds. But once I ride it more I'll get it down.
