hi guys, just thought i would introduce myself! 8) i have this awsome beast at the moment. it has mostly origional components. the only bits that aren't are the no-name chainset and the answer pro taper carbon bars. oh and probably the grips and tyres too! rides really well! much better than the 18 month old scott g-zero pro that i swapped for it! man that was a boring bike. i still ride a modern bike mind, a 2006 kona kikapu with marzzochi marathons.

not looking too bad for an 11 year old! not my favourite proflex mind, that would have to be an all shiny polished silver 955 with the big yellow elastomers :lol: so if anybody has one and fancies a swap/part ex/sale then let me know. even if you just have a worse for wear frame kicking around i would still take it off your hands... it's my all time favourite bike ever 8) , i remember staring at one in my local bike shop for months :shock:

I've got a 955 that is nearing a rideable state, a feat unmanageable when i bought it. Just waiting for some elastomers as mine definatelly were not big and yellow, they were more like play-doh that had been left out of it's pot.
I can't wait - although i don't want to subject it to a mud bath on it's first outing - so maybe i'll have to.

By the way your 857 looks pretty tidy!
