I remember Grisley/Easton from back in the early '90s- usually forks?

they werent that heavy, think my mates mega 20 was 25lbs, lighter than my bike at the time-about right for £600 bike. with rigid forks it rode really stiff, quick, but harsh. shame it got nicked. , mind you i think he bought his first car or summat with the insurance money...........

I had one of them, that i done up with XT gear etc, I actually found it a very responsive bike, when upgrading the bike it was quite light aswell.

The oversize ones were horrid! The earlier ones were much nicer.My mate had an earlier one, think they were made by Vitus.They were slim alloy tubes bonded into alloy lugs,bit like an alan frame.It had Ritchey logic parts,XT and Mag 21's.Lovely! Max
