Just jumping on the GT bandwagon here.
My retro rides are usually 'as found'.
One day I might put some effort in, but it only takes away from the few times I get to ride.....

Nice collection of GT's.

I remember the RTS on ebay not long ago as I had a couple of bids on it myself but in the end thought one RTS is enough.....

How dod you find the LTS? Have just finished mt LTS Project but have no idea on how its going to ride?

Brettels, The LTS is just like riding the RTS with only 5lb of air in the rear tyre!
I can never get used to more than a couple of inches rear travel, and mine is probably a size too big so it feel like I am perched right6 up on top. Mind you, it's a bit of good scary fun down a hill!!

OH, forgot to add. That RTS was a pretty high milage unit. Was the guys commute for at leat a decade and all of the parts save frame was worn out. I didnt care, big box of spare bits and away we go.....
