This is my RTS-1.

It´s a ´93 frame, made in late 92, with crmo rear swingarm and Nollen pro-shock version (like Mike King´s DH model).

The bike as a complete XTR M900 groupset, Spinergy wheels (looking for Spin´s), Mag 21 Sl TI with long travel kit, Look titanium stem, Flite TI, M737 pedals, Onza Rawbars 110 and Panaracer XC Magic tyres.

I like it. That Shark Fin aint doing much though. If simply for pure aesthetics, a longer stem would be nice :wink:

Sweet!! Love the Spinergy wheels, I reckon they're the pick of the old carbon fibre wheels.

Is it difficult keeping the old Rock Shox Mags in working order? I can't imagine it'd be much fun sourcing seals and bushings as they wear out?

What is the 'Shark Fin' for? I've never seen one before.

Bit like a Lizard Skin. These were around in the mid-90's, aimed to stop chain slap on the top of your chainstay whilst the 'Shark Fin' was supposed to stop your chain getting stuck between your wheel/tyre and chainstay. Not that I've ever had that happen, I still brought one BITD! :lol:

Definitely my favourite of all the RTS's to pop up recently, including my own...

I feel it's time for an RTS.O.T.M.
