How do you know it's a 99?  they used the same "swooping" top tube for 3 years.  What distinguishes one from the other?

Re: 1999 GT Performer

you should be able to look at the serial# on the bottom crank tube. should see a # kinda like YC99C0***8 something like that. i dont know but i thought they only used this frame from 98-00. to say its a 99 from looking i would like to know that one myself. the example # i just put up here is a 1999 year frame. im pretty sure if someone has more info please add.
Did your rear dropout have to be modified for the 14mm axle?

You are 100% correct.  They used this frame from 98-00.  I have a 99 and a 2000, both of which have 14mm drops.  Hard to say that it's a 99 just from the pic.

GT had this frame design out in 1998 wink
And kept it until 2001 wink

2000 & 2001 Frames had bigger diameter tubing throughout!
Much bigger rear dropouts, and longer too, which were also featured the 14mm axle slots.

-1998 & 1999 Frames were kinda 'thinner'.
Both 1998 & 1999 had 10mm dropout slots (3/8")




PS: The head-tube, seat-tube & chainstay decals that are left on it actually tell it's a 1999 GT Performer wink
