Cheers, :wink: , only the DH version had that shape of seat tube, there was a DS version with a plain curve on the seat tube.

Once i've built my Orange and re-built this LTS i'm giong to look for an early 90's 16" Zaskar frame to build, i think the retro bug has bitten hard :) .


Had a Zaskar LE that i bought new as a frame in the early 90's, purple anodized it was 8) , sold it about 12 years ago, wish i had'nt now.

Well, this is my other bad-boy.

It gets used all the time, so I now save the RTS for dry riding and Retrobike meets. Not that there is anything wrong with the RTS, I just really like the Avalanche...... :wink:

Sorry its dirty, but I rode it all weekend :lol:

TORA's, bloody good value, trouble free, adjustable, etc etc, need I say more???? :D

Had this bike 4 months and I love it, oh, and the oval tubing :shock: sexy 8)

I have change the original GT stem and riser bar to a KORE stem and GT straight bar, personal taste really, and stuck a Vetta SL saddle on. If you need a GT short stem and riser bar for any builds, let me know.

Any pics of the LTS yet......cheeky sneeky peek please!!! :lol:

Thank's for the compliment :wink:

Dont know about the disc adaptor as the brakes were on the bike when i got it (Hope C2's),

Heres a pic of it anyway if that helps, the lower part bolts to the drop out with the QR passing through it and the upper part clamps to the seatstay.

This is the bike at the moment, stripped for a full re-build, a pile of new bits and cleaned within an inch of it's life :D

Thanks for the reply and the pictures, most appreciated!

Working on mine at the moment too, however lack of funds has stopped the build for now. Can't wait for next student loan payment :wink:

Really looking forward to riding it!!!
