Thanks Orange71 got your message from ebay message, I would have liked to have kept this project it took a while to find a decent frame. But somebody will get a beauty. I am also known as Retrobloke on this forum. Orange71, I think you might well have helped with info for this project, thanks again.
Are you sure you want rid? I love mine. Didn't realise it was you - how come you're selling?
Is it any good Orange71 ??? As a rear suspension that is ??
Well I always liked it - it wasn't particularly active as the cranks are mounted on the rear triangle so small bump sensitivity wasn't there, but for big hits it was great. Gave about 4" travel with the shock I used. I got the bike to about 30lbs with mid-range gear on it. The large single pivot is ideal for british mud and in 10 years I have only cleaned/serviced it once and it was fine. Nice and simple. The only problem I have now is the chrome is starting to spot with rust. Apart from that I still use from time to time!
