My 1999 18" Explosif in her new guise. She's been through a few incarnations. This is the first rigid set-up.

Carbon exotic forks, and full XTR. Ti Bonty bars, Ti USE post (when finished), and Hope Ti hubs with 517 SUP CD rims.

I'll get her weighed this week.

Some new shots. Haven't weighed her yet. USE Ti seatpost to add.

She is mighty fast.

Smart. Bet its fairly light. Think the forks will compliment the frame pretty well.

Great Bike, I thought I was the only one who liked dual control too.

Very nice and inspiring me to go as light as possible with my Hot. Liking those forks a lot, how much do they weigh and is there a rider weight limit on them?

Weight limit is 97.5kg (215lbs) for the 44.5cm fork.

Fork weighs 0.94Kg (2.1 Lbs). 1.9lbs without V brake bosses.
