you missed the Mountain Cycle? there is one there.


Ah I should of been more specific I meant san andreas, but DH specific lol


no worries! although the SanAn is not really a downhill bike,MC class it as more of a trail bike.


There was a DH version though wasn't there, when I brought the Balfa it was between an old school foes, the BB7 and a mountain cycle shockwave, love the look of the shockwave

there was a"DHS" version of the SanAn with i think 7.5" of rear travel.
not tried one myself but SanAn's seem to work best at 5" of f+r travel.
Shockwave is on my list of bikes to have. one day!

Cheers all! Thankyou for the comments and votes. This is the third time lucky for me :)

Sorry I couldnt get the HED rims built up in time, they are still on the list of things to do!

(I still quite fancy the Lobo!)
