1995 GT RTS 9

Those who know, know. Early 90’s shimano at its best. The Rock Shox Judy SL in all its glory. Rear damping is taken care of by the Noleen piggyback shock. One of the nicest clipless pedals ever made. Shimano M-737 More Rock Shox Judy goodness. The very first, and arguably the most beautiful shimano XTR groupset ever made. Bushingless, bearingless, high pivot RTS swingarm. The classic Panaracer Dart alongside the Judy SL. An iconic duo. The unmistakable GT RTS Check out that factory spec rear brake rocker.

Additional Info This bike has been on my want list since I was 14 years old. I don’t remember specifically who I saw reading it in the magazines but the moment I saw the polished aluminium frame I knew I had to have it. 24 years later, I saw the frame for sale on retro bike in great condition so I made the purchase. I sourced some Rock Shox Judy’s from the same website that we’re in need of new paint and decals. The rest of the parts I had from a previous build. I think it turned out pretty well.
