1996 GT Vertigo

This is the only bike I've been able to keep more than 5 years. It is my favorite in my garage. Belive it or not i found it in the garbage.

Re: 1996 GT Vertigo

I have the exact same bike, same color and mine is a vertigo not a performer. I also have a performer and it looks similar.

Re: 1996 GT Vertigo

You need to lower that stem a bit so you don't tweek the forks and headset.
As long as you are happy with it the way it is that is all that matters.
