    it depends of the model
    I modified mine (98 1000DH) to fit a cannondale jekyll air shock, and I get 140/160mm rear travel and now I have a manitou minute MRD 130mm front, no problem
    for some time I had a manitou nixon 145mm, more relaxed angle, but no problem

    Nice!
    Is your rear linkage modified by noleen, or is just the original painted in white?

    Clean. How does the wife manage with such a high stand-over?

    My girlfriend is 1,80m, she has long legs :-), and she feels good on the 19" LTS frame. Just the stem is a little bit longer.

    Mine currently has a 180mm Marzocchi 66 installed in 2009. This is no longer my main ride and is mostly ridden by friends and friends-of-friends almost weekly; this bike has been ridden hard and so far the frame has held up despite the increased leverage of the fork.

    Go on ahead, I'm gonna take a breather.

    I wouldn't call it wrong, but....

    Hey Guys, new to the fourm here. I have 1999 LTS-4 I purchased new. I used it for one year and then it pretty much collected dust for the next 13 years. Any way I pulled her out and dusted her off. Went for a mild 10 mile paved path spin and noticed the elastomer is wasted.

    Any thoughts on where i can get a replacement or retro to a LTS 1 type suspension?

    Thanks in advance for the input!!

    No conversion exists unless you want to fabricate it yourself. The elastomer sprung bikes are totally different animals.... The only easy way to make it use an eye-to-eye shock or trunion mount shock like the other LTS/STS bikes is to find another frame and use it, unfortunately. Good luck on finding a replacement!

    Well, I dont think I'll be doing any custom fab work for this bike. Think I'll give Milwaukee Bike co. a call today.

    Thanks for the input!!

    Well ordered the elastomer. It stated its for a LTS-5 but looks like it mounts the same way.

    The attached pics are of my 1996 LTS1. I bought it new off the bike shop floor here in Georgia. Rode the tires off of it trying to keep up with my then 15 year old son.
    It has hung from my workshop ceiling since about 2000.
    What you see is the way I bought it. Only changes are the SDG saddle.
    I did not discover until later that the bike is equiped as a TEAM LTS. At the time I wanted the XTR equipped bike and did not know that only TEAM bikes came equiped the way mine was set up.

    I am surprised that there is such facination with these old relics.

    Though I have long since switched to a touring bike (Litespeed BlueRidge) this old LTS
    is NOT for sale.

    Just wanted to share what I was riding when I was 40.

    Looking at my pics I realize that the chain has rusted.
    Lack of use is always our worst enemy.
    I put road tires on it years ago so my daughter could ride. Looks like I need to get some good tires, a chain and see if these 'over 55' bones can still ride.

    You have a mix there. Looks like you got some XTR parts and a fork from a Team. The wheels are LTS-1, Teams had White hubs. Those rear hubs were notorious for grenading themselves, and GT replaced many of them under warranty. Mine didn't last a year and they replaced it with an LX hub.
    The Nuke Proof stem is a swap as well. Kore stems were OE on all LTS's.

    GT guy,
    Thanks for the input. I have serviced the hubs, but never any problems. Just lucky I guess.
    When I bought the bike I suspected one of the guys in the bike shop had built it for himself, hoping to ride what they couldn't sell.

    Is there a list some whwre of std features for the different LTS models?

    TFR1

    Several of us here have collections of old GT catalogs. There's also bikepedia.com and there is a german website with lots of old bike catalogs scanned. Retrobike has a nice catalog selection too - Catalogues | Retrobike

    Be careful with the euro catalogs - the specs were often different between US bikes and those sold elsewhere. The model names and color choices were often different as well.

    attached is a pic of one of my 1999 GT LTS 2000 ds,it comes with STX rc/LX/XT groupset but the current LX shifters/rapidfire seems to be out of order..not sure if it can be fix or repaired..also i was wondering if any of the newer groupset which comes with 9 or 10 speed can be fitted to this frame?

    an advice or suggestion is much appreciated and thanks
