... i since have thought that a 16" might just be a good fit

Frame: GT RTS 1994 (with 1996? decals)
Shock: NOLEEN
Fork: Halson PDS

Headset: DDG
Stem: CRAIG METALCRAFT
Handlebar: TITEC
Grips: GT


Brakes: MAGURA HS33

Shifters: DX THUMBIES
Front Derailleur: DX
Rear Derailleur: DX
Derailleur Cables: Titanium effect outers
Cassette: HG70
Chain: KMC
Crankset: unknown (possibly L&M)
Bottom Bracket: REAL 73X113
Pedals: CODA

Hub Skewers: ALLOY
Rims: MAVIC M231
Hubs: DX/HOPE

I thinks the colours actually go well with the frame, and there werent even chosen for that frame.

changed the forks to some Z2 X-flys, and put on a black seatpost and silver marin stem (identical to the stem on other RTS-3 so same reach) , along with Disc Drive pro, and Spinergy from original build

I find that those forks lift the front too much . the bike looses its racing look .

what are you doing with the other forks , selling them ? :roll:
