Team Animal '97....


Does anyone have anymore pictures of the Giant's Team Animal used to ride circa 1996? I'm sure I remember sky blue front triangle with orange rear triangle..?

These guys were one of the top teams of the day so surprised I can't find more on them

Hi, just found this forum after a bit of Googling, just dug out my old Giant ATX 980 and I want to get it up and running again. I'm not sure how old it is but I've had it since the mid to late 90's, I swapped it for an old banger back then. It's in reasonable shape considering but needs a bit of TLC. First thing i want to fix is the forks as they appear to have collapsed. They are Rock Shox Judy DH, i'm guessing they weren't standard from Giant but thats why I'm here. From looking around I think these have polymer inserts and that is what have disintegrated causing them to collapse. Does anyone know what and why to get what I need to fix them?

Here's a few pics of how it is at the moment.
