|I don't need anymore bikes but I am curious about the age of this bike.It's called a 2000 in this ad but it appears to be steel,at least it has what appears to be chromed seatstays and chainstays.It also appears to have a 1" threaded headset.Can someone tell me what year it is?I'm having trouble making this into a link---here goes

|I don't think it's steel... GT hasn't made steel road bikes for some time and looking at the oversized tubes, it's got to be aluminum.
Still, it's interesting, because I've never seen a GT with stock chrome stays like this. And I think you're right about the headset, it's definitely threaded which means 1". GT went to the ZR ---- designation in, I think, 1999. I had a '97 GT Strike, which was the earlier model (also Force, etc.). So unless someone has repainted, chromed, and re-decaled an earlier model... and if it's really a ZR 2000 it's probably all-Ultegra.
Look, however, at the buy it now price. That's way too much, and most people set their reserve just a little below that amount. Given what new GTs are going for at Supergo and others, this puppy is way overpriced unless there is some unique value to it.

|My friend is an ex-GT employee and he has this exact frame he uses as his temporary TT frame. It's aluminum( polished rear stays ) straight gauge tubing and HEAVY. I'm thinking it's a "98" model.|

|Some guy wants almost $1000.00 for this? Good to see that his best offer thus far is @$350.00. For $1700.00 give or take a few you can get a GT ZR-1.0 frame from Supergo that will blow this tank out of the water. The drop in weight, and increase in quality when going to their US made frames was substantial.
