Hey guys, I've searched through the GT threads in VRC, and found links to old catalogs, but I can't seem to find any information about 1990s GT geometry. First, I'm assuming that Zaskars, Aluminum Avalanches, and Panteras have the same geometry? I'm specifically interested in the geometry of 94-95 panteras with the rigid, chromoly fork. I used to have one of these in high school and I loved it! I'd love to pick up another one, but I'm not sure which size frame to hunt down. I had an 18" in high school but am a bit taller now and know I know what ETT measurements I like.

My (usually) keen google-fu has failed me in this effort too. Can anyone help me out?

BTW, I cruised the GT thread there and every single bike in that thread is rad. Nice bikes fellas!

As some one mentioned before, these 1990s bikes have short top tubes by today's standards.
I don't know that that's necessarily true (or at least not as much as people think). Remember, those measurements are actual top tube length not effective top tube length. Also, I believe at that time GT measured their sizes from BB center to top tube center. I have a 94 Pantera 18" and it's comparable in fit to other 19" frames I own (even modern ones). My 18" Pantera's ETT is probably no more than 10mm shorter than my newer bikes, and those old bikes really should be ridden with a longer stem anyway.
