Tachyon crew I'm coming at you. I'm picking one up Saturday in purple splatter colorway, unfortunately the fork has been replaced ):.

Yes it's been covered before by Buffalo Bill (and I also asked Stan). Rim braking is fine.

you can flip it too!

the quill part is separate, and actually has a quill at each end, one for the steerer and the other for the threadless clampless steel stem

Ahh, thank you. Mine didn't have the stem and I was wondering how you effected the flippage.

Well I picked it up today and it's kind of a basket case. It's purple, has funky dual quill in black. It was sourced from some GT warranty return parts stache, it has a (surprisingly colormatched) 700c hybrid fork and the u-brake has been filed up to barely hit a 700c rim. Any bright ideas for getting this fork to play with 650b?? QBP does stock a 1" thread-less hybrid dick brake fork. Halp.

700c canti fork isn't gonna take a 650b wheel, period. 1" disc would be cool, though

Axle to crown along a straight line. Dunno how to measure rake. Maybe a meter stick lined up with the steer tube and a ruler to measure from that to the dropouts?

rake shmake, mostly interested in keeping the hta somewhat in specish. I rode it yesterday with the 700's in and the handling felt fine with the fork that's on it now fwiw. BTW the front wheel that came with it has a nuke proof hub, score.

That exact version (1991) Avalanche has been for sale on Seattle Craigslist for a while. Dude said he'd take $150 for it. I told myself it was too small for me because I don't need another vintage MTB project, but soo tempted.

No buyers at $420 BIN, and still no buyers at $390 BIN? If the seller would pack & ship to a freight forwarder it would already be en route to Melbourne.

If you really want it I'll fetch and ship for you at cost. Would be fun to go up to Beacon and ride it back to NYC, and it's just my size. Would have to be after Mar 12 though.

Hah! You can't resist! Buying it just for the stem? Gotta admit, I've been hella tempted by the price drop. Almost forgotten about the other bike that's stuck in my craw at the moment... But I guess if he won't send it freight forwarders, that's me out, too.

What's with that? I had a guy last week who wouldn't do that for me. "Nor am I too interested in the risk of sending it overseas and having the buyer claim they were dissatisfied with the frame." Haven't these people heard of the fuckin' ANZUS treaty? We let your sailors fuck our prostitutes, you send us bicycles.

Kevin wants it. It's even the right size for him. Go on, do it!

I don't really need a second Tachyon, as much as I do want that stem for mine.

If I get it I'm just going to try to get him to ship to Cali, say it's my friend's condo or something. But if he's a dick about it, I might take you up on this offer. Thanks a bunch!!

Totally fits. You could put Quasi Motos in there. I had to put a drop bolt on the front fender and large spacers on the rear, there's that much room.

62 cm titanium GT with Dura Ace for $1000, plus a bunch of additional junk. I want. He won't ship or drop off at a local bike shop. Can anyone confirm that this is a Ti GT, or is that polished aluminum I'm seeing.
