Lets see those bikes made entirely of bits left over from other projects.

The GT RTS in the pics was built yesterday out of bits I had lying around. I bought the frame a while ago, with a project in mind, but it never happened. I always wondered what it was like to ride an RTS and now I know. :D

After failing to complete a couple of other projects in time to take them on Holiday to Arran with me, I built up my Zaskar frameset with parts I had lying around (and a rear wheel kindly loaned to me by FluffyChicken) and took that with me. I'd previously only had it built up as a single speed for road use.

It's been my first choice for off-road since:

Had a couple of frames - which I bought on here - kicking around and needed space and £ so I built em up with leftovers (plus I had to buy one chainring for the Saracen and a wheel and forks for the GT) and flogged them on!
