I thought it was about time I posted my BB7 on here, the frame itself isn't so retro as its a 2005 model but they have been discontinued and in the downhill world it seems that if its older than a couple of years its old lol. The wheels however are oldschool, hope biguns older one and newer one laced to sun doublewides proper heavy bombproof wheels, forks are old Marzochi Shivers like Enids only mine don't seem to be in the same condition :-( lol and a Fizik cow seat to top it all off. Anyway here's some pics.

Lol those cranks arms are now gone and sold to someone on here, just weren't working with the balfa so going to get some saints for it. I like the white colour too, I pain £550 for the frame with the rocco world cup on and the raceface headset, everytime I post on the forum I got it off the person who sold me asks if I want to sell him it back lol

Lol yeah I sold the cranks on here a while ago in the for sale section, I've seen the Apalache Real but I don't like the looks of it as much too be honest. The forks are great arn't they Enid, can't believe how well they work for their age they easily keep up with the back end which is a modern day shock. I had to service them a little while ago has the seals were gone and something I'd never done before and they were so simple.

Oh and no its not on the Balfa owner site I didn't know there was one lol
