Bought this bike today and while i havnt had a chance to take it on any trails or anything yet it feels absolutely class, cant believe they made this bike all those years ago and its still riding brilliantly. I was very suprised by how light this is aswell, anyways here are some pictures, it has been powdercoated white and i got sick of the stickers on it so took them straight off :P

Cheers for the comments guys to reply to yous:

The sofa saddle will be gone after i finish my xmas shopping although it is extremely comfy :P

I paid quite alot for it i think but the condition is fantastic and it rides superbly good tyres etc too- was £150

Yeh ive had a look at yours briefly and it looks sweet like

yeh you should have done mate, i love the colour of it and ive never seen one in white so thought it stood out too :)


Next thing to do is order some specialized decals for it! and possibly some new grips
