Right i'm going to cut to the chase, I am financially screwed so it's with a heavy heart i'm putting this up for sale :cry:
I bought it from Drew (retroman) last October, the only mods i've made to the frame was to take most of the decals off for polishing with the intention of replaceing with colour coded one's (that didn't happen) the frame is in very good condition with no dents or big scratches, it's either not had much use in it's life or the bearings and bushes were replaced not long before i bought her, all pivots are lovely and smooth with zero play, RS super deluxe shock is all in good order with the compression and rebound damping adjusters working as they should.
Yes, in a lot of peoples eyes these newer LTS's aren't the best looking but you're not looking at that odd boomerang seat tube when you're riding her and she really does ride nice, sooo smooth 8)

GT size 18"
centre of BB to cetre of top tube 18", BB to top seat tube 20"
seat tube - centre of head tube 20.5"

For sale thread when I bought her... http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... highlight=

You can switch the shock mount chips round for either 4 or 5" travel 8)

I'd like it but my big fat a**e needs a stronger spring than a 700 but I can't seem to find one :cry:

I've found it nice under my weight (just over 16 stone :oops: ) with the preload about halfway, my mate (11 stone) had to back it all the way off, I have seen a couple of springs come up but only 700's
