    score of a lifetime-98/99 gt lts 2000 for 100$

    19.5" white framed lts 2000 for 100$guy had it just sitting in his garage because he snapped a hanger and couldnt find a replacement,and that was 5 year ago. marzoochi bomber,xt cranks,xt front derailer,esp 9.0 rear with the x0 gripshift.only down side-xt v-brakes.well i have not found rear hanger to convert the rear to disc but the front fork is ready.does anyone know what size BB7 i should use on the front?i figure ill just use the v-brake lever and go mechanical since they are so damn cheap.

    Wow, that's a great deal dude. Sometimes you can find great deals if you are just patient. I picked up a GT Karakoram frame in pretty good shape for 5 bucks. It's gonna be my singlespeeder.I just need to pick it up from my sister's house in Indianapolis. I'm in Okie land Oklahoma. Wish I could help you with the questions but I have no idea what to do on that one.

    That's a great bike. I own the 3000ds version and I took it out for an extended trail ride yesterday after riding a Motolite all season. It left me missing the plushness and flickability of the LTS.

    On the way home, I started thinking about putting discs on it and upgrading some parts ... things that I was trying to avoid and the reasons I ended up buying a Motolite.

    Oh, you can get the disc tab adapters for the rear triangle on EBay. It cost like $40.

    After you got the tab, I'd offer to trade you out my wheels and discs, but looks like that's an 8 speed there. If it's a 9, let me know and we could talk. I'd rather lose the extra weight and go back to v-brakes

    I looked at a 99 LTS 2000 today in almost unridden condition. The lady was wanting $500.00 for it. She dropped to $400.00 on her own. I offered her $300.00 and I am picking it up tomorrow for $300.00. I just couldn't beat this deal as I am not going to use it as an every day rider. I just want it to add a legendary bike to my GT collection. SHHHHHHHHHHHHH please don't tell my wife!!! I didn't do as good as you but I think I did OK. I will post good pics after I get it. Here is one from her posting...

    Hi, Does anyone know where I may find a new Rock Shox Super Deluxe Shock like this , they are sold out although I am calling them to see if they will get anymore in and/or does anyone know of another shock that may fit on my LTS?

    They have these in stock but I dont think it would fit right..

    I think mine sat too long and the seals dried up and oil leaked out...

    TIA Cliff

    Cliff:

    The trunion mount coupe deluxe at icycles will slot right into your bike. It's just a lower-spec rock shox. I think the only difference is the coupe deluxe doesn't have adjustable rebound damping. I haven't found a source for a super deluxe since they haven't made them in years, but occasionally they pop up on ebay. If I were you, I'd order the coupe deluxe and put it on and get out and ride. In the meantime, you could keep an eye out for a used Super deluxe, fox alps, stratus helix, risse, or whatever type of shock that's left out there that can fit. for 14 bucks, you can't go wrong. :-)
