This is my third RTS but the first without any cracks. After the previous couple I fell out of love with the RTS and decided I would never own one. This all changed when Pickle (Jon) offered me his near mint example.
I collected it today and felt rather guilty as he has owned this from new and It means a lot to him. I have agreed though that if he ever wants it back he just has to ask, if I ever need to sell it he has first refusal and if he ever wants to ride it, he knows where it is.
Here is a quick pic as it came...
frame is ready for a buff but wont take much. Fork is almost immaculate and internally good. Wheels are ace, Black LX paralax hubs, double butted spokes, and gold mavic rims - never seen them boefore but they match the fork really well.
I am going to make a few changes to the bike, dropping the saddle height for a start!
I am not sure if the stem may be a little long for me but i have a black Kore that would fit nicely.
The red chainring will be swapped for silver and I want to replace the saddle and grips for black. Apart from that i intend to leave it well alone.
If you see this Jon, thanks. I will look after the old girl
