I've currently got one of the original GT iDrives, built up with XTR, discs & one of the first Jr-Ts, but I was given the frame - it'd never have been my choice!

So what would you whack all the kit on? What could live with the forks? I'm thinking something like an old Giant ATX? Ideally a Turner would rule, but what else is there that's less obvious & hence less £££

Ta :)

retro DH frames? yeti ASLT, mani DH, GT LTS DH, etc etc... kinda amusing that modern trail bikes now have more travel than these & actually pedal well up, as well as downhill :)

the one & only original LTS DH. 5-1/2" travel & the first bike with proper downhill geomerty, designed by the one & only nico v.
that bike, in my eyes, started it all & is a genuine classic. i remember see'ing one first at a porc race, it stood out from all botched xc bikes we were all on (trek y-glides etc)
ive got some 1st gen. rockshox judy dh in mt collection :D
