From the 90s, the iconic frame called Xizang will be brought back by GT Bicyles for 2012. With its reincarnation, this titanium frame will be reintroduced as a 29er. While the new Xizang is immediately recognizable, it is scrupulously interpreted with nice innovations.
Included in the innovative updates of the frame are a replaceable derailleur hanger, a tapered 1-1/8 to 1-1/2in head tube, and post mount disc tabs. Nicely welded, the custom drawn butted titanium tubes come with state-of-the-art geometry.
With the master plan of GT Bicyles to regain the glory it once enjoyed, the 2012 GT Xizang 29er Titanium Frame is back after its absence for over a decade. Other new features of the frame are a 31.6 seat post, English thread bottom bracket, full-length cable housing, and direct post type disc brake mount.
