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.

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