Hi Guys,

I have recently bought this of Ebay, I was wondering if anyone knew exactly what model it was? ie: It is a GT STS right? Does anyone know what number? (STS1 or what not), need a couple of minor spares thats all!
Any help appreciated.

I also have also just aquired a 96, GT RTS3 that needs a lot of work!!

Please take a look at my massive picture!! 8)

Cheers

Andy

From the angle of the photo it looks like an STS-DH, given the heavily curved seat tube.

Thanks guys,

Very helpful.

It now rides like I remember they used to, although I have slightly more weight on me than I used to back in the day! :roll:

Anyways thanks again.

Andy
