hey Guys,

Here is my new 1994 GT RTS. Here is a story I made up for it...

It was a left over tech shop frame. A guy build it up in 1995 pretty as you see it, and then never really used it. All I had to do was give it a light polish, and change the pedals and seatpost so I could ride it. It is missing the 910 XTR rear indicator but other that that its pretty much perfect!

here are the specs!

Frame: XL GT RTS 6061 with alum rear triangle, Piggyback Noleen
Fork: 1995 Judy SL
Headset: Chris King
Stem: Syncros 150mm
Seatpost: Syncros Clone 400mm
Saddle: Vetta SL
Grips: Ritchey Tru

Shifters: M910 XTR
Front Derailleur: M900 XTR
Rear Derailleur: M900 XTR
Cranks: M900 XTR with Actiontec Ti small and middle rings
Bottom Bracket: GT Titanium
Pedals: Crank Bros
Cantis: XTR M900 with Kool Stop pads
Chain: HG90

Front Hub: White Industries Tracker
Rear Hub: White Industries
Skewers: Salsa Titanium
Cassette: M900 XTR
Rims: Mavic 231
Spokes: DT Swiss
Tires: Panaracer Smoke and Dart

Blimey, that's huge.

Lovely spec. Similar on the route I'm going down, but frame size wise, completely the other end of the range :)

You've done a great job with it.

cheers
Chris
