if it is, that is the exact same bike I've got...damn, those were the gold ole glory days of mountain biking and GT ruled the whole world of mtbing. They just make bikes that this one anymore...all of the rest these days seem boring and "cookie cutter" in looks and performance. Anyway, before I devolve further, I still have this bike and it has served me well. Nothing has ever broke on this thing...just make sure the pivot points are kept tight from time to time. It soaks up the trail so great that I don't have to pick a line on the roughest singletrack around here...and it rides the downhills and ruts and roots like some AMA supermotocross bike. I love it. I love it so much that I don't want to buy another mtb bike until this thing dies...and its been over 5 years! Keep in mind, I no pussy and I don't ride at 5 mph and think to myself that I am some badass outta hell...this bike was made to be ridden hard. I need to take a cold shower now.
