Cheers for the links Mike :wink: , a few good ideas there, love those 80mm Bombers, had an idea for Fox forks but may stick with what i know (Bombers), good idea about the wheels but i think my mind is set on discs so will need wheels built for the RTS, also the RTS handily came with a seatpost.

Comments about the ride are pretty much what i thought, read somewhere a while ago that the RTS is best regarded as a hardtail, the LTS being a different beast alltogether.

Seem to be notorious for BB shell cracking, is that something that all the frames, or more the RTS 2,3's ?

Might i suggest m760 groupset :oops: Not the nicest looking and it seems it doesnt sell as well as other XT groupo's because of that,was thinking you might build up good components for little outlay* :? And that retro XTR stuff is just too sought after at the moment to get it at bargain prices.


* now that you look at it it will jump up in price :lol:

That's probably mostly what i'll use Andy :wink:

Infact i just won a pair of XT disc brake hubs on E-bay, dont know what M number they are but they look just like these ones.

Dont come with QR's but not bad for £32 :)
