Here is my latest build its a 98 LTS2000, I bought a bike off of Ebay with quite good parts LX/XT 24 speed stuff, so I'm going to strip that and build it back up on to this beast.

Let me know what you think, please note this is not a spec build and I know the HI 5 forks came on the 3000DS and not the 2000..... they were cheap! :lol: :lol: 8)

Cheers man, she's a wee bit big for me but I've heard you can wind the trunion mount to lower the back end? The back end on my last Lts did seem lower

aye, that looks GT 18" sized to me, same as my lts. Mines a bit big for me too. Careful about how much you wind that rear shock down, i found it did funny things to my position (more DH based) and as a result the steering.

could've just been me though :lol:
