Still some machine grooves to work on.
Yes Greybeard, the GT LTS-1 was ridden to some (DH MTB Pro) victories in it's day by Mike King (former BMX champ at the time). I do have a bit of expirience from that era....I raced the Norba circuit and many other mountain bike races for well over 10 years. My avatar is of me on the Mammoth Mtn. Kamikazi downhill riding a polished aluminum RC-201 Mammoth Bicycles (elevated chainstay and polished original Rock Shox). Those were some fun times.....
