I know you really want to hear that its a dog and not worth a bean

But I cant lie :lol: :lol:

Probably one of the best bargains I have seen,

I have no doubt this is a bargain but I can muster no love for this type of bike/engineless motor bike- just to fugly by half for my taste but what the hey!

Function over form gazz and all the better for it! Can't have the development of bikes based solely on looks.

I'm with Kaiser on this, the DH bike may be fugly but the technology trickle down is very valuable.

Anyhow I do like the look of BigHits and the monocoque framed Saracen DH bikes of the late 90's floated my boat just on looks alone 8)
