Heres a pic of my faithful RTS-2 and its week old new companion, a new Avalanche Expert
The RTS has been with me since the mid-90's, and mainly thrashed/raced round Thetford Forest until we moved to Branston, Lincoln.
Its spec is LX and XT, with fab RST 381 XL triple clamp forks, Deore DX V-brakes, Vetta saddle, DCD, KORE stem, X Lite aheadset spacer, Odessey pedals (when I'm not using SPuDs), Mavic 221 and 231 rims and a brill Pro circuit front hub.
The Expert is currently factory fresh; yet to be fettled to my spec!
I wanted to get hold of a 90's Zasker frame and build it to my spec, but between work and riding I haven't got the time....... Sorry its not Retro.....
but hey, the RTS is and is still my fave GT!
