Pair of Spin wheels ing good condition with original boxes, saw these while browsing ebay as you do, not sure if I've done this right though so correct me if I've done it wrong.

If they stay reasonable , might have a go at this , they would look good on the GT .

Never tried a set but always thought they looked well cool, they would look fantastic on a rts saw one back in my youth when all I could do was dream about an RTS with spins on and Magura's and it looked the muts nuts, was an RTS1 I think with polished aluminium frame Drool.

Ooooh do it then if they go cheap enough that would look great, was going to get some for my old RTS 3 before I got rid of it at one point but wanted disk brakes, then decided it was getting a bit much for the RTS and I'd end up making it look daft so got a downhill frame instead of battering the poor little frame further.

"Honestly, you will find yourself having to brake while free wheeling behind others that are peddling."

No way... do you mean, drafting?

I have a set Spin's for my LTS, only the rims are not very good anymore, and from riding some stairs there is a bend in the rims walls (l&r) don't know if I can fixx that, but they look nice in a LTS. :)
The ride.. well, the steering is slowly, but they roll nice.
