For sale, my 16" LTS DH frame. V. rare as it's an early USA hand made model, ball burnished with the straight chainstays and titanium rocker linkage. There are no cracks or dodgy repairs/ gussets on the frame, it is how the engineers intended it! I have recently fitted the BETD cartridge bearing upgrade to the swingarm pivot (this cost me £60 alone!) and there is no play in the back end. The Rockshox unit works pretty well, when riding it feels smooth and controlled however the rebound adjuster doesn't seem to do much. There are a couple of small dinks in the toptube from where the frame was stored however this doesn't affect the performance of the bike whatsoever. It will also need a new gear hanger as I donated mine to a friend to help with his STS however these can be obtained thru BETD or eBay cheaply and easily. I am really sad to see this go, redundancy is forcing my hand plus I have been riding my hardtail so much it rarely gets used. I would prefer the frame to be collected rather than posting, I am happy to meet halfway if not too far! I am based near the lookout in Bracknell. Build yourself a Peaty/ Mike King/ Voulliez rep!!
