to replace the Sunn 5000 my boy got knicked in front of the church ( with a nice middleburn 170 crankset :evil: )

a sunn stickered X Circuit but probably not as the frame in 40 is only 1.7 kg so probably a one off frame in excell tubing probably from 1998 8)

Quasi Full XT
sorry for the riser but that s nearly a have to for the young boys :wink:
bloody 28.6 seatpost so presently with a shim :?

11kg without the pedals and an obsys 40 fork (not the carbon one)

may relace the nice rear 217 on a XT hub but not the time yet :?

well tricky to say as frame has been repainted
thought it could be 97 or 98 mais a sunn buff said could be even a 96. Start of V brake in any case
probably a one off frame as tubing is quite light - as mentionned probably excell

the fork is a bit heavier than the obsys carbon
I actually say these obsys are "men's fork" as they are not very comfy - :lol: !
but they are quite light and if in good condition require no maintenance so as I am a dog in suspended forks they do the job
