My 1991 GT Karakoram Inferno 8)
« on: February 09, 2013, 10:35:52 AM »
Been sorting out a load of old photos and came across these of my 1991 Karakoram my Dad took of me years ago, 1991-2?

Man, I am proper skinny and as for the day-glo colours & bum-bag, well, I can only apologise! Gotta love the old Hot Tuna boardies & hoodie :D


Current rides:
Ibis Mojo SL
Pace RC300
Pace RC200F8

Ian, you are a legend.

My Ricochet was matt black and had unique self peeling off decals. I think it finished up being called a "coche"  ;)

What year were your two? I don't remember the Ricochet, is that quite a later model?

Now you're asking! I bought the Avalanche in about 92, 93. And the Ricochet second hand a good few years later. Maybe 97. But the Ricochet's year would probably be about 94. They both had the gold coloured Rock Shox Mag 20 or 21's on them, if that dates them? There's a pic of the Ricochet on the forum somewhere (I still have it!)
