GT Forte Ti 1998 700c (Edge) 54cm

Always wanted this bike but $2600 in 1998 was too crazy so I waited until 2013 when a guy in Orange County sold it for $675 (pics next to tree). I should ride a 52cm but over the next 6 years I've slowly modded it into a TT bike. Still have to get a deep carbon wheelset but no hurry as I like to experiment and see what mods make me more comfortable and faster.

More Info:
My only road bike. Since TT bikes have not fully standardized on tubeless road disc brake wheels yet, I'll just keep riding this oldie.

This is awesome. I had an '98 Edge Ti and crashed it. If you're ever going to part with it, I would love to take this into my loving home!

This is sick I absolutely love these frames - think you'll keep the road bars or go full TT bullhorn setup?
