Thank you sir.  I am waiting on my hoops to show up so I can drop them off with my hubs at Albe's for a proper lace/true.  Also waiting from my old Profile GT cranks to come back from Chip with some new chrome!

Re: A GT PFT Build - Modified

Hubs and Hoops!  I just packed these up today and shipped them off to get built up.  I usually lace my own 36 spoke wheels, but don't mess with the 48's, especially a 4X pattern.

Hoffman Bikes "Girthy" front hub and a modded Suntour Freecoaster with custom welded 48h flanges and 13t cog.

Re: A GT PFT Build - Modified

I have some ideas on changing out the Pitbull and running a 990 in the rear.  We shall see how it goes....

Lol... unfortunately that is the only option at this point.  I was going to set it up and see how it looks/works.  I was hoping I could run the Pitbull on the bottom side of the seat stays, but the adjuster is right up against the tail end of the top tube, not allowing a cable to fit.

cut down the bracket shorter. so adjuster clears.

Yeah, not sure what GT was thinking!  Excited to see how well these Revenge brakes work with the bearings.  I've never used them before.

Re: A GT PFT Build - Modified

Installed an NOS Xpo-sure laid back post (mid 90's), a mint 91 GT seat clamp, and a Viscount 2188 Dyno seat.  I still need my cranks back from Chip and need to finish up the Revenge brakes.
