Just received my new frame (waited 15 years for an LTS DH). Time to get with the polish.

Thanks all.
Frame split and a small amount of polishing done, really must compliment Barneyballbags for the frame. The condition is much better than I'd expected and its polishing up beautifully. My hands have already started to hurt tho and my clothes/sofas are covered in black smears :(

Great stuff 8) , they are superb riding biikes, had mine a while (still miss it), found it a great allrounder (XC etc) despite the DH tag, that was with 4" travel Z1 Bombers on it.

Dont worry about clothes, soft furnishings etc, such things are trivial compared to an LTS :)

I was thinking of going with a set of 4" z1 cr's to keep the steering quick. A set of boxxers would be lovely tho :)
