Hi guys

Here's my 96' LTS...
it's a custom bike, not 100% vintage, but I like restomod cars so sometimes I use their philosophy also with bikes :D

Yes I know that a suspended seatpost on a full suspended bike seems folly, but I've chosen it only for their look with parallelogram CNC mechanism (like front fork)...if I have to ride the bike, I will surely replace it with a standard seatpost :D
About rear derailleur , as wrote in the spec. it's a Tiso Altore 366, cnc made in Italy 8)

The frame, forks, wheels and cranks look absolutely amazing together. I'm a HUGE fan of LTS', both Alu and Thermoplastic 8)

The seatpost lets it down though. In a big way.


Sorry :oops:
