If it has the metal head badge, that's worth something. The helmet one.

I've got half a mind to go back and pick it up for, I dunno, $40, but I'm not looking to flip or strip right now so I probably won't bother. Anyway, a pretty decent deal for anyone so inclined.

Yours too Top! I just switched out the 11-28 cassette for a 12-21 for the flat terrain here. With a FD braze on, is yours newer ?

Unknown. I assumed mine was a '94, with the semi-crowned fork. There's very little data about GT on the web, less about the road bikes.

This just followed me home yesterday. '94 Force. Very, very clean and box-stock, right down to the original tires. 56cm square.

Older. Mine is '94 while yours is '96, the only two years they came in red(AFAIK). The unicrown fork and RSX group are also indicators.
