As I have no practical use for several full suspension bikes these days, I'm going to sell either my FSR or MS San An. Which ever sells first, I'll be keeping the other.

All the details to follow when I get to the lock up at the weekend and photograph them - for now though:

1995 FSR with FSXs and in a Jason McRoy invocation spec - lots of lovely aftermarket bits thrown at it (HUGI hubs/Tri Align brakes etc) and a Grundig race plate.

1992 to 1994 Mountain Cycles San Andreas - serial 11209. Super early (to the UK at least) model with intact decals and an unblemished monocoque. Some non-period build bits but top spec nevertheless including the lushest BOX breaklevers/Tioga Revolver cranks/Syncros stem and post/Judy DH long travel forks.

They're both biggish bikes - suit 5'11" - 6'3"and in great low, low use condition.

Asking £1100 + UK delivery for either.

No dibs thanks.

Ooh lovely. Have you had the San An from new? Doubly rare to be so early and so unmarked.

Loving the San Andreas.. I've been after one for a while but in medium :( . Good luck with the sale but I'm sure it won't stick around for long

I sold that to Neil in about, oooo, er, 2008...?

Second one in the UK after Paul Smith's according to folklore. :)

In fact I still have the original elastomer shock for it on my desk as a paper weight...

BB - do we know who the original owner was? Must have come to the UK with the Paul Smith one surely?

It's a 1994 san andreas, So was sold late 93/early 94.

It's the 1994 decals, pivot clamp and 2 part front mech mount, same as mine (serial 11158).



Both are beautiful bikes, if that spesh were a few sizes smaller I'd be talking to my bank manager.

Paul Smith bought his very very early on, in the US when he was out there - didn't come in to the UK in terms of him purchasing it here.

Wish I could remember more what he told me about it, but I was listening instead to his stories about Funk, and Dan Hanebrink and his Lunar Rover springs...

Pivot clamp and 2 part front mech mount are as per the PS frame - decals are later most likely, but the other details are the same...

Maybe your's is a '91 not a '94?

But I bow to your superior MC knowledge!
