1st of all I beg your pardon for my English; IÂ´m from Germany, talking and writing English is unusual for me and school long time ago...
IÂ´m riding mtb since 1988 but about Â´93 i quit with the magazines and mtb fashion. I was still curious in technique but always too late (wow, they made an 8-Speed bike, thats amazing
Still got a Kona Kilauea and a Manomano and some other stuff while my girl got two pimped Felt, a 600 and a 250...
However, I bumped into the rts-2 (1996, 24 Speed LX, Cantis). I always wanted a Zaskar, but found them to expensive...so here we are:
My "rts-blog": http://www.mtb-news.de/forum/showthread ... ost3690939
Still needs some work, but for me the most important things are the bearings, focus on the main pivot.
Think one can ride it, but its worn out and you can move the swing-arm left to right maybe 2 cm.
Is there any solution?
Seems like this guys https://www.betd.co.uk/product_list.asp?CategoryID=112
donÂ´t sell RTS parts no more...but I like the needle bearings and wonder how to make a standard needle Bearing with an axle fit into the rts...
... ore any other suggestion.
And can you tell me if rts-team, -1,-2,-3 are all using the same bearings?
I didnÂ´t found any hints for this in old postings, so I would be glad for some help/hints/discussion.
Best regards, Markus
