1998 GT STS 1000...Bad Ass!!!!
View attachment 2184
OMG, That is such an awesome bike, I remember wanting the Gary Fisher RS-1, back in 1990 but my parents would not chip in, so I ended up working all winter in my dads bakeries and saved enough to buy an original Cannondale Beast from the East.

I had the beast until 97 when I enlisted in the Military! I was in Korea when Dirt Mag (if memory serves me right) published an article on the newest most baddest of the baddest Down hill bikes ever made, a bike designed on this new thing called CAD computer, it was that GT LOL.

I don't own the O'l Cannonade anymore, the oldest Bike I still own is a 2003 Moots. Still ride the heck out of it.

For nostalgic reasons, the bike that goes on the Argo expo truck is a new Cannonade Beast from the East. I have 9 other bikes, some carbon, some Ti, but I will never forget how it felt to ride that first high end bike.

I’m a big fan of the Genesis geometry on the mid 90s and later Gary Fishers. Short chainstays and a long top tube equals great wheelies, and billy goat climbing...

This was my previous bike, when I worked at a bike shop and got EP (employee purchase) on everything...

Nice! My GT's are all XT spec....... the hard tail has a 2017 Rock Shox Recon TK Silver 80mm to 100mm w/ lock out, The STS I upgraded to a Manitou that's adjustable from 130mm to 150mm of travel. The Cannondale rigid frame is full LX, it works well. Why'd you sell it?

It was a $2500 build using my EP, which equated to about a $4000 bike, and that was ten years ago. I enjoyed it for a few years, raced it a little, then parted it out because of our family’s riding behavior changing with kids and stuff.

The most I do these days is wheelie down the Boise greenbelt, and my GF hardtail is perfect for that, and I have less than $75 into it, it was a craigslist find, and I had some parts leftover from the Sugar. It’s nice enough. Full XT 9 speed still. Bontrager wheels with a terrible rear hub. It takes half a revolution to engage... very un-King-like... in some ways I miss the Kings...

I do need to eventually find a fork for it. It came with a Judy SL, with blown seals. I’d love to one day find a Judy XC for it... basically a simple motocross style fork with coil springs in an oil bath...
