Other Catalog information
----------------------------------------
Lights, camera, action! It's time for the show. Designed for the highest level of pro competition, the show spares no expense in creating the ultimate flatland machined. Taking flatland back to the drawing board, GT designed the Show frame to incorporate a lower top tube, tighter triangle, built in seapost clamp and lower cable stops. The 100% 6061 aluminum frame features the Pac-Man dropouts, a super thick CNC-cut 1-1/8" head tube and hand-crafted in-the-U.S.A. construction. This frame is lighter and offers more clearance and scuffing room than any flatland design ever. Ground-specific components including GT aluminum 165mm cranks, GT CNC-cut 34-tooth sprocket. ACS 100 p.s.i. tires, Taska aluminum free coaster hub and GT Super nylon platform pedals with CrMo axles adorn the Show from top to bottom. With flatland riders demanding uncompromising quality, pro level equipment is mandatory. The Show is your ticket into the spotlight.
----------------------------------------
Catalog Facts
----------------------------------------
Like the headtube, the bottom bracket of the show is 100 percent CNCd. The knurled surface adds traction for tricks when the bike is upside down. While the gusset adds strength to this critical area of the bike.

The CNCd seatpost clamp is actually welded to the seat tube inside the top tube. Also take note of the CNCd brake bridge and unique bottom bracket area.

The headtube of the Show frame starts as a billet chunck of solid aluminum, is put in the CNC machine and comes out as a work of art. The integrated cable stops are cut during the CNC process, not welded on.

Towards the rear of the dropouts, the aluminum Pac Man dropouts get a slightly beefier look. Just like the steal versions. These dropouts will eliminate bent axles.
----------------------------------------
GENERAL
----------------------------------------
Fully restored, and modernized. The total weight of this bike with all the components installed is 27 pounds. The restoration was finished, and i took these pictures on 02/25/09. The serial number on my bike is 10970152 S
----------------------------------------
COMPONENTS
----------------------------------------
GT aluminum Show Frame pac-man rear dropouts and u-brake mounts.

GT show minimal offset 1 1/8fork with pac-man dropouts and u-brake mounts.

gt handlebars, Dia-Compe 990 front and back brake.

Dia Tech brake levers, sst brake cables and gyro, London mod for back brake lower gyro cables(The London Mod is a part that allows you to run 2 brake cables from the gyro, to the bake brake rather then a typical gyro cable. The gt show requires a special gyro cable that is hard to find. A regular one will not work because the top tope is welded to the bottom tube, and the traditional lower gyro cable is not long enough. The London mod is a great work around and makes the brakes more responsive.)

Gt monster knurled pegs, primo v monster red tires. GT Hub and rim, brickhouse minimal offset stem, GT seat and a random seat-post (27mm).

odyssey 28t sprocket, GT Aluminum FSA 175mm cranks, Redline pedals with 9/16 thread, Dia Tech d-cup headset.
