Just picked her up. Nice paintjob. Does anyone know anything about her? 1999 or 1998 perhaps. Fork is popped. Whole ride needs some tlc. But is she worth the effort, worth keeping, desirable?

ps: not my livingroom ;)

Fantastic race bike that really kicked some ass on the XC circuit BITD, BUT and its a big but! They mainly all broke within 2 years and were not considered safe to ride! Garage Queen only material I'm afraid unless you have a deathwish or don't like the shape of your face at the moment! I would hang it on the wall!

An experimental thermoplastic frame from 1998 is non-retro?? Now that's a bit harsh now isn't it? ;)

they were great! and really expensive...

If you ain't fat or heavy it will hold just fine, I think it's an 98 and it's Retro allright. I think the model launched like in 96 or something, and was all black.

I knew 3-4 people owning theese back in the days, and raced them hard and none had any problems with them, more then it was a really comfortable xc racer. At least 2 of them still rides them today!

Trick, expensive, light, prone to break and pre 98, if that ain't retro?

Lovely ride, great find, I'd say very desirable. I had a look at one of these a while back but the seller wanted top dollar and I wasn't sure. Still on my too long "one day I'll own one" list

Enjoy!!
