thanks. yeah Rob Warners was pritty much the same apart from a few differences as this is US jonnyT DH version e.g. fatter down tube and box section swing arm instead of tubular swing arm. think Rob warners was the TEAM ATX 990 (yellow and blue i think) just the UK equivalent i think.



This I mine. This is what you're on about? Although unless I'm mistaken a 990 was yellow and red. A 900 is yellow and blue. I have pictures of Giant riders on both though.

-Yik, just noticed that's not the most up-to-date photo. It's a bit more complete now!
