Certainly not a lightweight but good fun to ride. Very steady when giving it some beans downhill and can't wait to get it out on the Spanish trails where I think it will be right at home 8).

Thanks for looking.
Alex.

Well I've got to say, even changing from the short travel MC Aftershock to the Risse was night and day and improved the ride noticably... Should be even better with a tunable modern rear shock.

think the hole is for attaching a steering stop for triple clamps.
