1990ish Redline Thirty rigid. Same frame as GT?
A recent dumpster find of mine. I'm in the process of converting it into a $0 drop bar tourer. Seems nice enough of a frame, with all the braze-ons you could hope for, forged dropouts w/integrated RD hanger. Tange MTB Cr-Mo frame/fork/headset weighs 8.5 lbs. The triple-triangle or 'Hellenic' seat stay configuration I've only seen on GTs, but I've never looked at a GT close enough to see whether or not these were one and the same. Or at least made in the same factory by the same folks. "Redline" is embossed but not pantoed on the seat stay tops.
Question: anyone know if these were made by whoever was making GTs? I can't really find anything online about this model.
I can take detail pix if anyone is interested in seeing them.
Made in Taiwan
