That is a funky looking lobo :!:

How much does it weight :?:


Tooooo much !

Around 20 Kg ! :shock:

Tag wheels are 2.5Kg each, and DH tyres are heavy too..

But it go down offroad like on a railroad ! 8)

Why didn't you opted for a modern DH bike? Not that GT Lobo isn't a remarkable frame but i'm curious to know why you didn't chose your build around a modern geometry instead..?

Could you give us more insight about what's so magic about Thermoplastic material?

It's not rationnal : I felt in love when I saw the early LTS thermo in 95-96, I was a teen with no money, and now it's a dream to have 3 of these at home.

These are not best bikes ever, modern ones are soooo far better, but nevermind : I am not a great biker too, so I don't want more..

:wink:

- Hope integrated stem, welded on reinforced and polished new crowns :

To be continued...
