Hi,
Well this gound up built by me for a mates son.
The very fist sell of all my stuff, haven't sold a bike in over 35 years, every thing is regreased, he got a real bargain, I made zilch on labour....cassette-trigger shimano shifters with two finger levers-shimano chain set and shimano rear derailleur-aluminium bar ends-reflectors-bell-bottle rack :roll: .....now he wants another for some other son :(

And guess how much he got it for :?: , OK forget its an Apollo aluminium frame, he wanted front suspension for a MTB course (not adult stuff) son was well pleased.

Never again.

You need the image URL.You usually get this by right clicking on the image and it will say something like "image info" and the URL will be there.It will say something like http//:picture102.jpeg
You then click on image above and Cut/copy and paste your image URL or "wrap" in the image tabs and you get:-

[img]your%20image%20URL%20here[/img]

Post this and you'll get your image.

Cheers :D

The GT is on it's way out next year. The threads have finally gone on it - and I doubt the last BB I installed (with great difficulty) is going to come back out. Still, I can't complain - I only paid £20 for the frame :lol:

Trouble is - I now have to source a frame to match the rather expensive parts that are currently on it :lol:

Pity you aren't a bit taller - I would have tried to flog you an American made GT Team Issue Zaskar frame to replace it :lol:

It's a large as far as I can make out. However, thinking about it I don't reckon it'll take your fork as it had a 80-100mm fork on it.

Yeah, a large may be too much - although those forks on my GT are Tora 318 U-turns which can be set between 85 and 130.
Most of the time they are set at 100mm anyway

I think you should return the bike back to the shop as it has a dent in the top tube, rather big one, am surprised you and shop didnt notice it :lol: that and the other tube looks like it been in a crash?
