@Nick 32sixteen,

Why's that? The sight of all those GTs that have been entered leave you cold?


All FS in general...it's just from a different era that's all.

Think we have to say no to suspension posts as being full suspension.

For me personally some of the entries pretty well mark why I lost interest in mountainbikes. There are also some from before that era.

I agree with you, hell I hate the look of DH bikes, but I was just too much of a fan of square tubed Pace frames to let the RC500 slip by. And since I have built it up, I am quite liking it. Odly its proving to be my most difficult build, despite being one of the newest and in theory at least modern of my Retro machines.

My GT must be pretty much a love hate thing.

It is for me, as 97 was also the point I lost interest in mtb's. I was never into the DH scene bitd. But, I did go to watch in 96 and saw Steve Peat on one of these, it was so different, so elite and out of my league. His riding and the LTS-DH. I just feel a sense of achievement owning it now.

I love retro full bouncers but the LTS are marmite bikes.

The Pace, AMP, Manitou and Iron Horse are stunning 8)
