How do you turn things like that into avatars :?: and how would i go about keeping Chunk for later use :?:
I take it there is some sort of program for downsizing pics, forgive my
lack of comp knowledge :oops:


I use Microsoft Office Picture Manager. Open pic and resize to 100 x 100, click save and then add via your 'Profile'. Remember to store the original pic, or rename the resized one first, otherwise you risk having the original pic resized VERY small! :shock:
Chunk should be already saved/stored somwhere in order for you to use him anyway???

I'm chuffed for ya mate. :D I know you've been after one for ages.

Personally Spin wheels never did it for me, but they are popular on GT full sus'ers.

Cool. 8)

both were imported by caratti back in the day - if you wanted a fully loaded bike from a caratti-supplied dealer then it was an LTS with spins and syncros bits.

After seeing this bike in the flesh after the Lincoln ride I must admit that these photos you have shown do not do the bike any justice IMO. :wink:
Some close ups in a higher res would be great and these would really show up that great shiny build.
Nice bike! :)
When are you getting a SPIN for the front?
I hope you are not offended by my opinion John :wink:

This one may be for sale......just toying with the idea, maybe after MM, I think I want a Zaskar.....well I know I want a Zaskar, just cant justify keeping the RTS.

No, offence taken Doogie mate, I could so with taking some half decent shots, this was just a quicky at the w/end :wink: No plans for a front Spin yet, as I'm running my Pro-Circuit suspension hub on Mavic 231 up front, and keeping my LX hub / Mavic 221 original wheels as spares. Hence 2 complete sets of wheels for her, dont need anymore 8)

Hmm, maybe I'll get rid of the Avalanche to make room for a retro hardtail :?

But I tell you now, after waiting about 10-15 years to get SPIN, I'll take the damn thing to my grave! :lol:

I stripped my rts down ready to put it on ebay.
In the end I decided to put it up in the loft instead.
they seem to be getting harder to get hold of in decent condition....
might be worth something if i keep hold of it long enough!
