Rock show had mag20, then mag21 and mag21sl. Then cgame the Judy, xc silver, dh red, sl yellow. Then came the Sid in like 98 ish.

Manitou the was the sx range with the sx ti at the top, then came the mars range in 98 ish.mars carbon was the top, had a lockout.
I just use a new manitou r7 for ease of everything
