I know I'm being critical, but thats a great frame, let down by some really poor componant choices and shoddy building!

Those LX hubs have no place on a bike like that.

Whack an XC Pro or Complete XT2 Gruppo on it and that could be awesome.

Why are there never and Fats for sale in my size???? (small)

That is a really nice frame, rear triangle looks cool with the underslung brake position. My '91 Wicked has the rear brake in the more conventional position between the seatstays. How did those rear brakes fare slogging across muddy bridleways? Guess the mechanism got a little sh1tty eh?

I was just about to post this up on here - glad I checked if someone had beaten me to it.

What a beauty, a bit pricey though.
