These are my bikes and i LOVE THEM every now and then i would stick them on pinkbike just to get a bit of feedback on what i have created.But i hate that site now it is full of 14 year olds that claim to be riding the biggest and badest machine around and do nothing but slag off your ride.Anyone suffered the same problem ?? if so do you still use it ??.[/b]

Hi!

Must admit I've never used pinkbike......this is the most friendly forum I've found though :D

Loving the GT collection, I've never owned a GT but my sister and her partner have had RTS's and LTS's, my sister still has a LTS 2000 DS with upgraded cranks (AC), I'll try and take so photos of the frame I'm storing for them too, a pukka LTS-DH :D

Nice bikes, but IMO, the words 'carbon' and 'DH' should never collide in the same sentence :D

Why? Carbon is used for more dangerous sports such as F1/Indi-cars plus can flex for a fishing rod. A frame is only as strong as the builder. One bad weld and bang goes a steel/ti frame. I remember Mountainbiker mag printed an article on why mtb's shouldn't be made out of Aluminum. But look at Kleins 8)
Long live carbon :wink:

Totally agree with you carbon is just a perfect material to use for mountain bikes i have thrown my rigs about and done some serious drops and still they are as strong as the day they left the shop :D
