Hi there, i have an opportunity to purchase a GT Pantera new, from a now closed-out inventory. As this bike is probably an early 1990's bike, it comes fully rigid as well as cantilever brakes. This bike in question I use to love and always wanted a pantera as it was a good mid-level bike. I am wondering though if i can simply change the brakes over to a better, more modern v-brake setup, as well as install a good front suspension fork. Thanx for anyone that can fill in the info or help me out.
