Does anybody remember or have any info on one of these, its a circuit fo full sus frame made I taiwan, I remember my lbs. Having one for sale in for ages and always remember being tempted by it as it was very cheap at the time, think it was around 380 pounds at the time, anyway many years later I found that a mate at work had bought it and still had it, and loved it. I recently found one on ebay, nos, frame only, 30quid!
Any background info would be great!

Here it is, ive stripped the paint off now, aqua blasted and polished it, looks like quite a well built frame, tidy welds etc

Never seen one of those. The price indicates that it wasn't anything hyper-special, but with some decent parts it could very well turn into a nice bike.

Its really light, similar frame setup as a sintesi or early giant full sus, have got a manitou air shock to fit, now to find some nice forks
