my bike had the stem and bar swapped with a monty steel 180x35* stem and Steel monty flat bar :-(
would like to get a better set up. would it be better get a slightly smaller stem and a mid rise bar?

Easy
Just flip that stem over
Should be perfect

realistically and all kidding aside
Modern stems will work if needed
period correct build may prove difficult to find the original stem

Perhaps this in 180mm
Bars could be swapped with something else more modern

Wow..!! The GT-Mod, that’s where it all began for me, my first modified trials bike. I’ll always have lots of love for the GT- Mod. I eventually got to talk to Han’s Rey about it at Interbike and that was just awesome.

I ended up snapping and ripping apart over 14 GT-Mod frames, over a year an a half, but GT sent out a replacement every time.When I began trials in 96’, BIU was in place and you were allowed to use your bash. The GT mods bash, wasn’t made well and all the impacts on it spread out throughout the frame and eventually parts would fail.

I was forced to run 6 piece BMX handlebars and a standard BMX stem, due to the kore stem and azonic bars kept snapping on me.

I’ve included a picture of my first snapped GT-Mod frame, I rode the GT mod right up until 2000.When GT got bought out by Pacific bikes and stopped making it.

I still have the original bash guard, wheels, stems and even a chainring from the AC cranks 23t and possible the tires as well.

After I get back from my home, if anyone is interested in building up there’s. Hit me back and I might be able to help you out..

First it was goatwheels out of Dudley Massachusetts and then Mike Koza moved on and Tim Williamson took over and renamed it TrialsinUSA…You can still find the site on a so tree called the way back..it’s funny to read what Tim wrote..

As for the stem and bars, I’d upgrade to more current ones..The Kore stem looks great, isn’t very strong and I broke over 5 of them..back then I was 203lbs..lol..I’d go with current bars as well, I doubt you can even find the Kore or azonic bars that came with the GT-Mod..
