1've just bought this frame and built up this machine last week. I love it. I can't upload the finished product as image too big. How am I for getting parts etc for it. Eg, rear shock parts or pivot bearings etc.
Thanks in advance,
Simon

Great bike you have chosen well. I have a thermoplastic STS-1 version and love riding it.

As above here and eBay as well as Facebook, there is a GT STS / LTS group, are your best bet for specific frame parts.

BETD Engineering also still produce specific parts too:

Hope to see pics of your build soon.

Nice, pretty much whats been said above regarding parts :)

And to upload pics you will need to use a resizer, most are free or link the pic from a hosting site which is what a lot of members do on here :wink:

Nice, I’d love an LTS. Think I might have trouble getting it past Mrs R though...

Thanks guys. I'll try get a pic up asap. The finished bike is brilliant. I've wanted one for 22 years but when I was that age I could never afford one!!!

Pic done with resizing app. Thanks mark for the heads up on that. Modern technology is not my strong point.
