New Full Suspension GT Zaskar?

Spotted beneath a thick coat of dark colored duct tape, what is possibly the new full suspension GT Zaskar was spotted recently by the crew over at Velovert.com. Rumors have been spreading that GT has been working on a new 100mm full suspension platform, and this spotting on May 29th certainly seems to validate the claims.

Jump past the break for a few more pictures from Velovert of the stealth GT!

Lots of tape covering up any graphics, but it still can’t hide the tapered head tube. Can’t hide the internal cable routing either.

The front shock mount looks interesting, I wonder what’s under that tape? It definitely seems that this bike, if it is the Zaskar FS, will retain the Idrive suspension platform, just in a smaller more efficient package. Rest assured that as soon as we have more info you will find it here, but until then be sure to head on over to VeloVert to check out a few more pictures.

They must have referred to the original Zaskar on this one…because why on earth is that top-tube so high!

Wow that looks ridiculous. Do you need to be 10 feet tall to ride one?

That looks like a 22″ or 23″ frame size, it sure looks unattractive in that size.

Zdeno Chara called & wants his bike back sometime end of next week.

Zdeno Chara is only going to play 3 more games of hockey this year, so he needs it FAST.

Easy guys. This bike is clearly going through some sort of identity crisis!

calling this thing a Zaskar is really just a lame marketing ploy. This thing shares no blood with the original Zaskar. It’s just another (fugly) bike.
