Cool urban assault vehical

ATB Love those GT frames.I would leave it as is.


Sick urban assault vehicle, check out mine. Don't worry too much about '90s originality, what's most important is that it's still being used. Original spec would be cool for the highest level GTs like the Xizang but modifying without feeling guilty is the best thing about mid-range mountainbikes. (Karakoram was higher mid-range iirc?)

it is indeed higher-middle

it is indeed higher-middle range

but thats true... it wasn't even that fun of a bike before... sorta awkward for a mtb imho, but its current setup is amazing.
i saved it from rusting away in some guy's back yard and gave it a new life

looks fun!

looks fun!
