What a shame the frame and the fork were sold separately just to make a quick buck..

Looking at the angles, I don’t think the frame was originally made for 24” frame. Tbh, didin’t sell fast or for profits

Blowing the dust off this thread to shamelessly promote my own listing of the actual GT National Team Track Fork

I agree, the frame is one of the nicest ever made imo. It's a common misunderstandig that these frames were made by Yamaguchi but they weren't. According to my knowlegde Yamaguchi was consulted about some repairs done to the Olympic team practise bikes but newer built one. It was mr. Yelverton's team that made these in Longmont.

Thanks! It might be that I'll need to let go of this bike also. Not the most versatile frame with 24" front wheel:)
