|Anybody know much about this model of '96 or '97 vintage? I will be building it up soon, would like to know head tube and seat tube angles and fork rake. It looks very well made, with nice welds, excellent paint job and Henry James dropouts. It does not look like a high production model. It has a 54 cm. (c-c) seat tube and a 55 cm. top tube. Can anybody tell me more about this model?|

|GT had a small shop there for custom team frames, development and a small number of high end frames. They also moved all of their Ti production there.
I had one for a while till UPS destroyed it. Sweet ride, miss it still. GT Customer Service helped with the UPS claim and offered to replace it with a Ti frame so I was well taken care of.
At the time all of the production frames (Steel, Al or Ti)built in Colorado had the same geometry-a fairly agressive road racing setup although each material was quite different in ride.
