|GT Rebound - Restored|
This is a kids GT Rebound from around the year 2000 give or take a year. It is 15" and is for a child 10-14 years old. I have had it around for a while, the bike is in really good shape except it needed a new rear wheel, new tires, new front derailleur and shift lever, new seat, new rear brake cable and new handlebar grips.
I started by breaking down the bike and giving it a good cleaning. Everything cleaned up nice, the frame cleaned nicely but does have the normal wear of a few scratches from use.
I am laying this post out a little differently because the bike did not need a lot of work, just cleaning, lubricating and new parts.

I then installed the new tires. The tires are called Swiss Army tires, I don't know why, but it sounds cool. The tires are 26" x 1.5", same size as the old. The bike looks much better with new tires.

Last thing to do was install the new seat and tuning. I always choose an inexpensive seat but that I know is good quality and comfortable. I do this because seats area personal thing, there is no point of putting an expensive seat on that is not going to fit what the costumer wants and raising the price for the expensive seat. Most people end up replacing a seat to there favorite seat,
This is a nice bike for a kid 10-14 years old. It is a nice frame, with a nice front Rock Shock that is in very good condition. All the parts that normally break or wear out have been replaced so there is a good amount of use in it before they will need to be replaced again.
