Picked up this as a frame a while back now but work and kids mean this project has been left (and the fact I've never messed about with full suss' or disc brakes !!)
Anyway, this was a f/s XC race steed in 03, quite a high RRP IIRC ??
Looks wicked and weighs nowt... All pivots feel tight but theres som rust on the capscrew heads. There is no shock or rear mech' hanger and there's the odd chip here and there. BB threads are good and the original Cane Creek h/set is in there albeit fubar...
Oh and Medium size BTW - Gonna take a big hit but a new steel project is about to begin so say £99 as is ???

I bought one of these new back in 2003.
It was probably the best race bike i ever owned.

Rear shock is 200mm eye to eye from what i remember - the pro was fitted with a Float RL
Travel is 98mm.

Someone is going to get a bargain!! :)

Oh, i MAY have a mech hanger in the stores but i can't promise anything......
