Ok, so this whole idea seems to be a bit of a theme now, sorry. I have seen a couple and know there are plenty out there on this site.

I don't own one, but have a bit of a soft spot for them. I have built one almost from nos scratch parts for a mate, and since then my son fell in love with it and only wanted one of those as his first full size mtb. 2 weeks ago it arrived, he is a very happy bunny, and i am quite happy to have one in the stable even if it is not mine!

I will take some pic's of his this weekend, and my mates when I see him next, but if you already have some pic's of yours stick 'em here.

Also, if anyone is looking to swap their frame for a larger one let me know. he is so happy that he has one that he is overlooking the fact that it may actually be too big for him! If not he'll keep it, and I'm hoping he might make 6 foot :?

mine's frame only currently. Still want a pic? :lol: Not looking at its best - but it's been used and used and used. It's still the only frame (or bike) that I have ever bought new. Cost £450 for the frame plus £220 for the shock from Leisure Lakes in Southport in June 1996...

Thinking of building up again, but full suspension out of favour with me at the moment. Sure I'll come back to it though. It's a size Large BTW.

Yeah still want pic's.

I'm intrigued by the different colour schemes that have been around for this too.

Powder blue front with a white rear
Chrome/Nickel front with a yellow/orange/black rear

I have various stock photos if you're interested - ones I've gleaned from Ebay and the like?

So, were these intended as full suspension for XC duties (like the RTS) or more for DH (like the LTS).

Just wondered :wink:

I think the X1 was intended for XC and the X2 for downhill IIRC.
