Its 80mm travel at the rear (Fox Float RL) and designed for either 80 or 100mm travel at the front. (I've seen conflicting evidence) My Rebas are set to 100mm and it feels/looks right. The previous owner had a set of 140mm travel forks on it!

I've had the shock serviced and a full renovation done by the importers so basically bike is like new. Unfortunately they did not have the 2003 decals. So I've ended up with this years- not ideal but I am cool with it.

Frame & shock weigh just over 5lbs & bike as is is just over 25lbs.

I havent been able to ride for 5-6 weeks due to a bad neck and TBH its still hurting a wee bit- The sun was out today and I just couldnt resist.

As I said it was my 1st ride on it today and it feels pretty sorted already. It sizes up pretty close to my hardtail. Going to get some wider bars and possibly convert to a 2x9 or even 1x9 set up.
