Selling my used GT LTS 1000 DS frame in 18"
The frame was manufactured in late '98 and comes with a BETD IS2000 disc brake adapter
and INA needle bearings
in the main pivots. The frame also has dedicated cable guides
for the brake hose, which is rare for LTS frames. Bottom bracket is 73mm wide, 1 1/8" steer.
The bushings and bearings are in good condition and are without play. The rear shock has minute play in the trunnion mount's threading, but this can be countered with an 1 1/8" spacer between the spring plate and the trunnion mount.
The rear shock itself is a Rock Shox Coupe Deluxe, it's in good condition and comes with a 700 spring.
The frame has the usual scuff marks
from cable rub, marks from the chain on the chainstay and some chainsuck. Running a too wide rear tire has left two grooves
on the inside of the seatstays. I've been riding the frame with these groves and they have not diminished the frame's structural strength. I have tried to show all this as clearly as possible in the pictures.
The decals are weathered from use and polishing.
With my height of 180cm I have found this frame to be a good fit, maybe a tiny bit on the large side, but with the frame's angled seat tube it has never been a problem when going downhill.
The frame comes complete with shock, Truvativ XR Dual Clamp seatpost
, DETD disc brake adapter for IS2000, GT seat clamp, canti studs and a few spare parts.Pictures

These pics show the frame before I rode it for another month, not much has changed since then.http://imgur.com/a/oOJft#0
These pics show the frame as it is now. Additional pics on request.
I would like 280€ via paypal, including shipping from Austria
(insured and with tracking). I may have to disassemble the rear triangle to meet the maximum length of 100cm for the package, but reassembly shouldn't be a problem.
