Thanks to Harryburgundy for firing the e-bay link over to me for this :wink:

Ever since i cast eyes on the Groover in the US mags i felt weak kneed :oops:

I managed to bag this one and set about putting my own touch to it.

The paint is a very light pastel green. rear shock and bearings all replaced with new. Manitou minute fork fitted and an assortment of new Raceface, Thomson and hope parts.

Ill be lowering the spacers on the steerer has i was playing around with the position on it on todays virgin voyage.

It is quite low but long so fits me really well. This is the replacement for my Mountain Goat WTR hardtail frame that will be recieving a fresh paint job and stored for 20 years :lol:

This is the purple one dude :lol:

I just could not live with the colour so i had it refinished. The colour does not really show too well on the pics but is a really sharp, fresh green.

What a shock riding a suspension frame after 21 years on an hardtail. :lol:

You've got nice bike !
I have similar one - kind of dirty after the race. It was a year ago, now I have replaced few things to make it lighter.
