Project LTS has arrived!
Unwrapped a very big parcel last night (thanks haribo), and I am chuffed to bits. Whilst the decals are scuffed, the frame is in very good condition, with hardly a mark on it
So, to start of with, the decals will be removed and I'll give the frame a clean and polish. and Brasso the rear end.
The mechs are Deore LX and the cranks Deore XT with Middleburn rings. All apprear in usable nick, and just need degreasing.
Front end wise, we have 2006 Rock Shox J2
These will be going soon, and I have yet to decide what to slot in there. Judy or Sid may be an option.
The current bar and stem have been removed, and I have a silver GT straight bar ready to go in (thanks LongboardSi) plus a silver Trans-X 130mm reach stem on its way (thanks doogie).
Wheels, for the moment I'll be using my Deore LX/Mavic 221 off the RTS as they too are 1996 examples (my SPIN and Mavic 231 will now sit full time on the RTS).
So, I'm just left with choosing a saddle (Flite or Vetta
) some V's or cantis and some shifter/brake levers.
Some new pics will go up beginning of the week as its a lot nicer in the flesh, but for now here she is (photo courtessey of haribo).
