Just found the site and thought I would post a couple pics of my sweetie. Its a 96-98 (I forget) Amp B4. Its been in storage for 12 or so years. I recently pull it out and have been gettin her cleaned up to start riding again. Carbon legged fork, raceface cranks, syncros bb, Pauls love levers, its still pretty sweet even today. Cant find my clippless pedals, so Im gonna give some eggbeater 3's a try. She weighs right around 23lbs.
