Hey Jamabikes, nice bike. Here's my one that I have owned since new. It is original apart from seat, tyres, front sprockets, cables, and rear cassette. I have done about 5000 k's on it all off road, some racing. Front forks could do with an upgrade and rear shock is getting tired. Easily the best bike i've owned.

snap :lol:

mine needs a new rear shock really as the lock out doesn't work but tbh it rides so nicely with out it i'm in no rush.

will get a longer seat post , may be even a dropper, at some point and switch to a shorter stem.

Yep I am keen on one of those new fangled seat posts.

My rear shock loses the air pressure but the lockout is fine. i have fitted new seals to the air sleeve which worked for a little while.

The frame got a small bit of corrosion around the water bottle cage inserts - I never used these. something to watch out for...

shock guard and or boot might add life to your rear shock
