I had one of those. That thing rode like a wet noodle, but handled just as good as my Intense M1, which was my next bike. I was only about 130lbs then, so noddle stiffness was not a problem.

Holy crap. Where'd he find those old Wildgrippers...new at that?
Herndon snapped his LTS DH at Seven Springs & they pieced together a size small for him to race. The shock would rub the tire at full compression.
I remember drooling over the LTS so bad. And yet now that is a complete pile of crap turd, yet what Peaty did on that thing at Seven Springs was unbelievable!!!

Beautiful! I raced one of these in France back in 1999. It was one of Peaty's old bikes. I'm about Peaty's height, you can see how cramped these bikes were compared to todays models.
