Indeed! In my defence they were the first Mozo Pro's, they are really nicely made, emerged as a genuine challenger to RS and Manitou.... then it all went a bit downhill so to speak. The £ difference was significant enough to give em a go, I do remember I got the forks and an aheadsetup for still less than the RS's off the day. Alas they lacked the kudos which was all important at the time and never challenged the big guys in the long run.

Its funny thinking about the way I fannyied about with that bike, a bit of an oxymoron of ideas. I kept sticking the lightest stuff I could find yet I had a comparatively small bike for a BMX feel and loved hooning down hills and jumping off stuff. It did end up a bit of a mogre. Still have the frame in the cupboard and next year will be 20 years since I bought it and conversely my 20th year mountain biking! Its also the bike that brought me to the site in the first place.
