I really should use them, but each one has been a complete restoration from the ground up. I'm a big guy and I've heard of frames failing especially on the plastic one. So with the RTSs being more than 20 years old and the LTS not much younger I really don't want to break em, they're just too hard to come by again.

[cycling]  How can you not want to get out and ride . [cycling] The looks you get, the questions ask.. I have a few old timers in the GT line.  Don't take them out in the woods to often. Fire trails, Airline trails. State parks. No ruff house , jumps, rock climbs, Just take in the sights and get some miles in. Love to see and hear peoples reactions when they see a older bike .  Ride my friend  [cycling] its your baby,

Cheers for that mate. I just got a little bit bigger, I managed to get myself a nice looking LTS downhill frame yesterday. I can feel another build about to start [angel]

It should be with me some time next week, it looks in real good condition from the photo's though and it's got new bushes. The only catch is that I'll have to sacrafice one of my other builds in order to bring it to life.

I'm just thinking ahead, does anyone know what size and pull [top or bottom] front mech a 97 LTS DH would take, I could wait and see myself but I can hear ebay calling and I like to have everything ready when it gets here. Cheers.

I couldn't tell you bud I'm not an LTS owner. Team RTS, STS-1 and Carbon Lobo that's my GT collection.

You can't tell me you own a Team RTS and not put any pics up, lets have a look.

This is not my one obviously, but it's built identical inc the decals.

It's a complete copy.

If it looks half that good it's my dream bike. Was the frame any different on a Team or was it all about the spec. Did you say it was for sale? [wink]

Mine looks better, it looks new lol. The Team bike frame is a better grade of frame or so I'm told. And I've owned all RTS framed bikes and the Team rides better than all IMO. With looks to kill and performance to match its a win, win here.

But sadly for you old chap it's not for sale...... Sorry.

I was just looking for a set of wheels on ebay and I spotted a set of those Spins in the pic....... £499.....wow. It's a good job it's not for sale because it would be way out of my reach.
