dear all,

I want you to be part of my build up. I bought a GT LTS not long ago and it is time
to give it a new shine and tune it with some parts. Before I start, here is picture of
the LTS how it arrived:

I am going to mix it up with some XTR and Syncros components.

First of all the frame has to be disassembled to check if all the bolts and bushes are fine.
YES they are. Thank god this bike was used not much. Everything is in perfect condition!

But after over almost 20 years the aluminium is not shiny any more and needs a polish.
So the first entry is going to be about the polishing tires of the frame.

I bought a new polishing machine today since by hand it was not accomplishable. This
was the result after the first try. I used Autosol.

More soon!

Cheers,
Peter
