1999 GT ZR 3000 rebuild

There's not a lot of these around - 1999 GT ZR 3000 - team Lotto colours from 1999.  This is how they came to be a sponsor (mine is commercial, not a team castoff).

My first ever road bike, reborn.  Bow Cycle for the original purchase and the rebuild.

Essentially a 20 year refresh, lots of technologies that didn't exist then - Di2, internal routing, carbon tubeless clinchers, wider rims and tires, power meter, 11 speed. 

Rides wonderfully, and it's stiff!  Pure horizontal top tubes are rarer than they should be, it looks great and starts lots of conversations.
