Memory is failing me but i'm sure that it was either 1999 or 2000 when I purchased this from Merlin Cycles as a previous years bike, which would make it a 1998 or 1999 - seems to fit with the kit thats on it.

It's been in my garage ever since, only getting used 1 or 2 times a year and hence as of about a month ago (before discovering this forum!) everything except the forks, headset cap and bar ends was original - tyres are as supplied with the bike and i think its on its second set of brake pads.

I was amazed to find out that its officially become (almost) retro and I still haven't got around to using it more regularly!

Anyway, since the forks were fitted just after I bought it and had not been serviced since and all the kit that I couldn't afford back then is still around I though it was time to upgrade it, thanks so far to Pace (for the wheels) and MickyC (forks).

wow thats a nice machine dude. I remember lusting after the Axis R from around 95-96. Think it was blue, yellow and red but that is just a nice. Would love a mid to late 90's Axis like that one. Big improvement with the new forks as well :D

I'm sure it's a '98, a friend of mine has one too.

Nice updates with the Forks and wheels, looking good 8)

Big improvements with the red wall tires and hubs. Would look good topped off with a white saddle IMO, but you be your own Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.
