More Info:
"According to a friend who was at GT when they were in Santa Ana, the story behind this frame is that it was a limited edition model that was made for special GT dealers at the time... The paint fades from a very deep and dark purple in the front to black in the rear... this paint scheme wasn't shown in any literature (except what may have been released to the dealers)." (http://www.socaltrailriders.org/forum/market-place/12422-gt-zr1000-road-bike.html -- Fairly certain that is the frame that I now own, since I bought it off a guy in California.) The paint is really nice. Sometimes it looks blue, sometimes purple or black. Not 100% sure how accurate the information in that thread is, but i thought it was interesting enough to note.

Thanks and for sure. It's always been a tad too small for me though so I figured I might as well let someone else enjoy it. In the process of switching all the parts on to a KHS Aero Comp. Will hopefully have that posted up soon.

maybe get a for with a longer rake. a steel fork could look (and feel) good. maybe flat bars and a right thumby shifter would be sick too. LOVE that grouppo though. sweet bike

Don't get me wrong, I don't mind the toe overlap one bit. I just find it interesting how aggressive the geometry is for a road bike. Thanks for the heads up on the BB. Definitely on my list of things to do this winter.

Super build. That is some steep fork.Must be twitchy in group rides. Old lady torn up much lol.? Thinking of something like this(track with gears) but only a six speed cluster with clamp on DT shifters(old Suntour parts and axle clamp hanger) just 'cause.Enjoy

Thank you, and yes twitchy as all hell but super fun. That build sounds awesome btw. 1x9 definitely keeps it clean and simple.
