Hi folks it's been a while but mostly because nothing really interesting has been going on with me. Don't get me wrong I've been through a few bikes just nothing interesting until now.
I bought the frame last year and have been putting parts aside for it until the storck was due a service and I put this together.

Here's the spec.
Frame corratec superbow team World Cup 2002 I think
Forks bombers are being replaced with a set of s recon s lives I've just serviced.
Brakes hope
Wheels can't remember what the rims are off hand but they look cool as on the bike. Front hub is a hope and the rear is a cannondale coda that made fitting the rear brake very interesting. Was going to use a set of hopes with mavic rims but these turned up on another bike and the mad frame fits the mad wheels. Have the xtr cassette on the hopes but these had a decent xt fitted so never swapped it.
Tyres are Kendas stretched to fit the rims.
Post is a nothing special but needed a 400mm for the insertion depth.
Shifters old xt will be upgraded when some xtr turn up
Mechs xtr front and back and the xtr crank obviously.

Going to try getting pictures up but here's a link if it doesn't work.

Nice. I drooled over one of these back in 1998 when I bought my first proper MTB and I’m sure I saw one advertised in one of the old MTB magazines back in the day. I love anything that’s a little bit out of the norm, and that double bow shaped top tube is so unusual.

I missed the boat back then but managed to pick up a Superbow frame for £40 last month, so I’ve got that in the queue for my winter project.

Presumably with that compact rear end it’s quite harsh on the derrière?
