Why does everyone dislike the GT-LTS5 1997?
Honest answers, I won't be offended.
I assume it's the non GT like geometry? My 1997 bike is below and is mint!

um i think because they were cheap and we are all snobs that like shiny american/uk shit...

great bike , the elastomers are a bit rudimentary even then..


also your bike really nice and looks good in the blue and yellow colours

As above, I think we all listed after the Shiny alloy Version or exotic thermoplastic.

Great example you have there so be proud of it :)

It does not have a proper rear shock to lower the price.

I dont think people dont like them, its like said above, if it was polished and shiney it would look a lot nicer.

I think for the right price it would make a great little cheap bike for someone.
