'91 GT Tequesta Overkill

Bought this bike for peanuts in a sorry state and being inspired by xbiking movement decided to clean it up and modernize it a bit with 1x drivetrain and better tires, but it all went completely overboard once I discovered there are no good options for rear u-brake replacement… Carbon parts, downhill parts and more that this bike definitely does not deserve.
