Hi all,
i started with a rts1 18" frame built in 92 sold i guess 93 started collecting parts for it bought a rts2 frame from the same year for rear triangle/shock and decied in the end that i couldn't brake it up

So now i have 2 of them!!

the rts1 will have the more sought after parts,eg mag21 sl ti,cooks b/b and cranks/tioga ti rear cassette and mavic 231 whees etc

the rts2 will have standard mag 21/rolf dolomite wheels/onza ho cantis/gt bar and stem.

both have there shocks removed for the time being and i will be getting in touch with gill_m for new decals for the rts1.

all coments welcome good or bad!!

Yer the rts2 is a 20" the rts1 is a 18" am 6'1 so the 18 maybe a bit small but the seatpost is 400mm long!!
