Picked this up recently, but not sure of year - suspect it to be 1998>

It has LX/STX-RC stuff. Forks are Manitou, shock is Fox Vanilla.

Any ideas? I've looked through the Trek archive but can't find a proper match.

The original Manitous were well past best, so have fitted these Magnum Rs for now, which were £12. Total cost of this built is now £67. I'm quite pleased :D
