Hi everyone, I thought i'd start off this thead on a positive note.

First the good news - two days ago and right outside my front door, i caught a local teenager riding my (then mint) blue 1994 GT tequesta, stolen from my garden almost a month ago. The kid squealed his ignorance and I got my bike back. The bad news? It's beaten up, scratched and needs a respray. The ugly news? The British Met police cannot and will not press any charges. Typical.

OK. Can anyone tell me the exact fork dimensions for those 1990s GT steel hardtails like the Tequesta and Karakoram? I think the same fork was used pretty much throughout the range, although the design was changed a little when they switched over to O/S (usually Reynolds 525) tubing in 1999 for the last 2 years of production. I need to know the axle-to-crown height, and the rake & trail. I am considering fitting one of those carbon MTB forks (Winwood, Mosso, Ritchey etc.) but i want to choose one that accurately matches the orginal frame geometry; the original Cr-Mo forks were very low IIRC.

Any help or advice will be gratefully received.
