My 1999 Element T.O. The element was my dream bike when they first came out and I was lucky enough to obtain this one new and raced it for 5 years. Hasn’t seen too much use since then and like me has gained a few pounds over the years. (the bike and me)
My interest has been recently rekindled and I have been rebuilding it over the last year, shedding some pounds at the same time. Shall post some pics when finished

nice thread revival guys! not the usual mainstream of blizzards, hammers and fusions either! 3 EQUIPE in a row! :D

Dig the Element as well. I like the blue skinwalls. but the blue striped rear tire, not so much. :roll:

I don't like the Panracer blue stripe either but my Ritchey WCS blue skinwalls are all worn out and I can't find replacements. :cry:

Rocky Mountains have to have Marzocchi's on them, don't they? I don't know why, they just seem to suit each other.

Nice Blizzard!!
