03 gt i-drive 1.0 xl with xt/xtr
I'm finally selling my xc bike...cause I need money for college!
It's a good bike. Been taken care of by myself (a bike mechanic) regularly. Here's it's story: I got a new i-drive 2001 2.0 back in 01, bent the flimsy shock mount on it and managed to squeek by and get it warrantied by Pacific cycles. Stupid thing is that it took almost a year to get the new frame, so I got a hardtail and built it up with the parts off the i-drive. The HT was a fun bike, so when I finally got the new frame from Pacific, I was in no hurry to build it back up. I ended up building up the new i-drive frame in the fall or winter of 03. It's been built up since then. The new frame is much stronger then the old one. I can notice an increase in stiffness. Plus the new seat mast and shock mount are nice and beefy, no worries about broken shock mounts on this frame. I also went from a L frame to and Xl, as the L was cutting it close to begin with then I had another growth-spurt during my year of waiting. The original SID air shock in the rear has been replaced with a coil fox vanilla r, cause Interantional Bikes in Boston lost my shock when they dissasembled it and sent it off and refused to acknowledge that I was missinga shock amongst my parts kit!(this was before I worked in a shop so I went to the area's biggest GT dealer for warrantee investigation). I call up the territory manager for Pacific cycles, this guy named Adam I think, tell him my situation, and he sends me the vanilla r shock for free. He's also the guy that I made contact with during frame warranty that helped sort out the confusion amongst the warranty department at Pacific and me.
so here are the specs from what i remember off the top of my head, I'll update anything missing later on when I post some pics:
-frame: 03 GT i-drive 1.0 4.5" of travel, fox vanilla R coil
