how about my Strange ST4.

this is my second ST4, this one was a prototype for the geometry, other than that it's normal, the head angle is slightly slacker than normal and the BB is slightly lower, it rides fantastic, i find it's perfect for trail centres, 100mm rear travel and it climbs really well over technical stuff. it's a bike that i really enjoy riding.

this pic was taken in the summer on the IOW. :D

spec is, Orange/Strange ST4 frame with RP23 shock, rockshox revelation 426 air u-turn forks painted to match by Orange, hope brakes/hubs/headset/post, xt/xtr gears, easton bar/stem, mavic rims and panaracer tyres
