It's white, a steel frame and has U and N on the two rear seat stays.
1 inch of sus' up front.
What is it and how old?
Do you need a photo?

Thanks

Try some research here.
May have a model name stamped on the BB shell.

Thanks.
I've looked but not found!
Maybe I should take a picture and see if anyone can shed some light on the bike?

It's my only mtn bike and we're entered for the Busksoffroadsportive in May, its very road-bike geometry (a professional bike fitting of this Sunn and my Trek shows this to be 100% the case when you superimpose the two images of me seated on the 2x bikes) , butt-up and head down, not ideal for XC technical riding though as it fels quite "wrong" compared to more modern XC hardtails.

I'm guessing you mean this?

If you look at the rear triangle it can only be the 99 total or urge

1" steerer ended after 96 for sunn
from 1997, bikes were in 1" 1/8

could be a resprayed frame with 99 decals but if you got a picture, that would help much better ;)
