Had this a year or so now, I built it when I was in the UK and had no bike to ride. I built it in a hurry, hence the mismatched bits.

However I'm not feeling the love for this, and it sits in the shed most of the time.

The ride is good, the rear shock is a Rock Shox SID, but its not the lightest bike in the world. A better set of forks would make all the difference I think, the ones on my bike are really heavy.

Cheers, I'll update the thread title. I got this one from Ebay, the bloke had never used it, so I had no idea how old it was.

Univega are a German company, so in effect the bike is now home. The reviews for it were good at the time. I'm hoping to take it up to the mountains soon to really test out.
