Just wondering as I rarely see these bikes mentioned on here. I know they weren't exactly popular even in their day (at least this side of the pond), but after dragging the old Buckshot Pro up to Haldon to attack the Ridge Trail, I was reminded how bloody good these frames are...well, at least going up hill and on the tight twisty bits (which is most of the Ridge Trail).

So, anybody else out there use one as a main or occasional XC steed??? be nice to hear about them and see some pics.

Here's a couple of my old relic to get things gong...

a good friend of mine has a Tomac Talon, the titanium hardtail frame. I believe they only made 25 of them total. Its pretty nice, but the rear tyre clearance is exceptionally tight, so its only really a summer rider.

Never even seen a Talon, or read anything about it, guess that makes the ali H/T's look almost popular... :lol:

Love these frames! I did buy a mint one but was far to small for me. Shall dig out the pics. Was sold on here and there is a thread somewhere???

Picture added but never got past this stage as it was far to small :cry:
