I bought this bike for 300 bucks off of craigslist. He said he got it in europe in 2005.
Its called a Gt Zaskar Team and has a coup de monde sticker on the seat post tube. these are the compnents
The shifters are sram twist shift 9.0 The rear derailur is sram x.o. the front derailur is sram quartz. the brakes are sram 9.0 vbrakes with sram 9.0 levers. the crank is a deore hollowtech. the seatpost and handlebars are ritchey. The fork is a rock shox pilot SL. the wheelsare mavic 227. the hubs say motion control.

Has anyone ever heard of this frame, it says kinensis tubing. i have a couple of pics but i cant figure out how to post them

bikepedia.com is your friend most of the time. dunno if it lists euro spec bikes though.

Zaskar's are nice alu frames, though the fork is an entry level Rock Shox. Sounds like a decent deal for the price. Have fun on it.

If it is the right size - good deal, if not you got ripped off.
