Ok so I bought this almost 10yrs ago (for the princely sum of £899) from my local H*****ds and rode it pretty much non-stop for a couple of years (to work and back every day) in an attempt to get back into MTB'ing even back then....
So I went through 3 x rear shocks and in the end, through frustration more than anything else, my local (let's call them dealer now
) replaced it for something that was pretty special back then, with lockout and bump/rebound adjustability.
And it's sat in the garage for the last 6or7 years gathering nothing but dust and oxidation
until today, where I thought I'd dig it out, wipe it off, and take a couple of pics. RS Judy's still work fine and there's only a mere hint of the brakes rubbing, which I find totally amazing considering it's never even had a wash...
Hope you like it? I love the colour
