this lovely beast was a competition prize on another forum,that mr evil won from my lord blackadder 

but they conspired to send it to me to become custodian of [biggrin]

i am undecided on what will happen to this,as i need to find the correct ring or rings for the front and mech if im going 3 x 8 

im hoping to squeeze this in soon and strip the rear to re-paint silver...keeping the lovely purple,it doesnt need improving  just need to sort the gear decission  out as its horrendous off road[crazy]


[w37v][ql65]the green tyres are on the wifes ride [e8ur]

My first ever full suspension bike, it was love instantly for me.

The perfect xc weapon and tireless work horse. Love the way the rear suspension on the RTS kinda locks up when climbing.

OK outdated now but I adore these bikes. Hope it's making you happy old chap?
