Here it is - the bike that gave me my name! I've had this one in many guises through the years - started off singlespeed, then added gears (3x9 25th anniversary XT), then added Rebas and it saw me right for 12 and 24 hour races. Now I've got it back to how it's best - a hardcore hardtail trail centre weapon!

The frame or the decals? I got the decals from ebay, the old Mountain Cycle was selling them off. I'm not sure if they still make the frame - if they do it'll be on the Mountain Cycle website.
