Not sure of the exact year but, this was a birthday present from the GF (aint she nice!).
Rarely out as I've never found a right ride height with that stupid suspenion specific frame design crap.
Anyway, after being lent a decent fork pump from Iwasgoodonce, the Manitous arent naff, they're ok and ready to rock n roll...
Frame: Airborne Black Widow titanium 2005/6 ish (now sold as Van Nicholas Zion)
forks: Manitou Mars (very light)
Wheels: self built Chris King onto random Mavic
Headset: CK No Thread
Rear mech: current XTR
Front mech: self build hybrid made out whatever fitted.
Shifters: Deore LX
Stem/ bars: trusty Azonic Shorty, Easton EA50
Cranks: Topline Compact Drive - thicker arms than the older type, less prone to going 'ping'...
Brakes: Original 1st generation XT/Grimeca twin pots - very light and good at stopping. Need pumping when cold.
Any suggestion welcome - Im thinking Thomson s/post, stem/ bars to finish
