Hi, I recently purchased a Sunn frame and cannot identify the exact model :?: I have had a look through the catalogues and have found the the cable guides are different on the one I have. It came with a Sunn Obsys Carbon Fork.

I would appreciate you help on this? :idea:

Ignore the cranks, seat post and V brake which came on it.

Thought it might be a 95 model by the serial number

It will be a 96, built in 95.

Have a look on Bikepedia as they normally have Sunn details. The cable guides should be a big help as they are pretty unusual.

Just looking in 1995 Sunn catalogue and all cable guides on all frames (apart from special full sus.) are on side of top tube.
That's all info I have. :)

Hey Guys,

Thanks so much for the help.


James_jc, it is a 1 inch. I had check all the catologues and come up with nothing. I am delighted you worked out it is a 1996 Sunn Maxe. I just joined Foros ForoMTB and am waiting approval, so looking for to seeing pictures on there forum. Thanks a million.



Would anyone know if there are sticker kits available for this? or where I could get one made up?
