Mine.

Not full on madness but enough to be fun on both the ups and the downs:

Not quite '98 but it is a hard-tail with (I think) quite a bit of travel. .

Not long travel (4") but suppose you'd say it was a hardcore hardtail.

Waiting on some better forks as and when I can afford some and other projects are done.

Heres my Planet X Jack Flash.
150mm up front.
This wee bike will go anywhere that my downhill bike can and has the added bonus of being able to get the seat up and pick a low gear for the climb back up for another shot :)

Image

Also my Decade Virtue. Nowhere near as hardcore as the Jack Flash but with 130mm up front and a burly steel frame it can still take a good beating :)
Sorry about the crap old photo.

Thanks Coomber :oops:

Made by Kinesis to mark their anniversary.

Very under rated and not often seen frames.
