I'm looking at replacement shocks for my STS - I've found a brand new Romic shock which I THINK might work, provided I can use the RockShox Trunnion on it.

I don't suppose anyone knows whether the Super Deluxe uses the same thread pitch on the shock body as a Romic, do they?

Here it is, anyway:

On another note - were the rear ends of the STS slightly wider than 135mm?

I've tried my rear wheel in my frame, and there's a couple of mm gap each side of the axle?

Either the frame is a couple of mm wide, or the wheel has a 130mm axle which I'd find very strange as it's a Pro 3 disc hub which came straight off another mountain bike, and mtbs don't tend to run 130 rear ends..

I don't have the hub to measure it as I'm in work.

If it's a case where my STS rear end is slightly wider than 135mm, would it harm it to clamp it up - I ask this because it means that the frame would 'bend' in slightly each side when the QR is clamped shut...

Its just flex in the seatstays. STS/LTS are 135mm just like any other mountainbike.

Going to be selling my GT STS lobo frame very soon - what do you guys think is going rate for the frame only - no cracks, carbon is a little worn on the down tube, but no cracks or anything. - I applied new decals to it, so they are very fresh. - all bushes are fine and shock is also fine.

Only reason for the selling i need the money to buy a new frame.

I've got a VVGC user manual for the Deluxe/Super Deluxe rear shock for the LTS/STS - The only problem is, I don't have access to a scanner :(

I'll try to take some good photos of it tonight and I'll get them posted up :)

Hello, dear retro friends!

I chose to write in this thread, since I think it's logical to do as such.

I've been recently offered a trade for a VGC Fox Floar 100 fork that I have. The guy basically said he can give me the Mr. T fork I was interested in anyway plus "Uhm, I have some kind of frame, I think it's somenting like 'GT STS' written on it". My knees went soft immediately, as an STS is something I lusted intensely after when I was a kid. He sent me the following pictures and I don't know quite what to belive... Here they are:

There are a few more pictures in my Picasa album over here: https://picasaweb.google.com/1095930395 ... ForWebUse#

He said the frame was cracked in its one of its aluminum segments. I don't know what to do and I am wondering if this frame is worth anything else than being framed (sic) and put up a wall.

What do you think?

Thanks,
Mx
