Everyones been at it putting together replica's. All of them pretty awesome too, but what are we looking out for next??

Personally I'd like to see a Jake Elliot fat chance from durango (91 I think) complete with radial front whell and original rockshox and perhaps a Furtado Yeti Arc ( I am sure she rode one) from a bit later and of course a Tomac Ti mongoose. Unfortunately I haven't got the money or the garage required to attempt any.

I think 1/2 the point in replicas is that they're easily recognisable? a roberts white spider with peugeot paint is just gonna look like a peugeot?

Neds M2 with disc drive (okay under another make, cycleworld 946 blah blah) full suntour xc pro, judy fsx would be a fairly easy, yet cool replica :)

sorry - I thought Ameybrook said he wanted a Klein!

A Tinker replica would be cool though. Carsten may have one or similar?

Your right :oops: But I saw this bike in real life, and it wasn't so much the bike as the rider - when he dominated the field on the first lap of the Mt. Snow NORBA in, what, 92? 93? I watched it. On that bike, it was truly awesome. Something thats stayed with me a long time.

The Judy FSX would be a wrong fork for it. The M2 would need an original RS1 based Specialized FS or the latter FSX ('93 non-carbon version).
Ned used the M2 in 1991-1992 with Suntour XC Pro MicroDrive parts. I'm not really sure about the derailleurs in 1993 (XTR or XC Pro). For 1994 he used the Ultimate with XTR derailleurs, Gripshift X-rays, Avid brakes & TNT cranks. Fork was Mag21-spec FSX Carbon/ti and the same tension disc was used too. Can't say anything for sure for 1995 but I think he used the M2 again with Judy FSX & XTR.

This is a 1991 version:

I remember really drooling over this in 1992...lucky me that I have gotten even better: S-Works Carbon & Epic Ultimate... Still this would be a super nice replica!

And this a 1993:

As you can see, for 1993 he used Gripshift, Specialized DirectDrive cranks and Shimano 737 SPDs.
