Theres only one old fashioned pic of mine and god only knows where it is but if you imagine a white early In-bred with 950 XTR, rigid on-one forks, Shimano Deore wheelset and red Grimeca twin pot discs (the ones shimano used for the 1st generation XT disc) with Easton finishing kit.

Its was great until I tried to go uphill on it.

Cheers max. It's an 18 inch 2010 sterling moss green inbred. Reba sl 100mm fork, first generation hope mini's, early crossland wheels, michelin xc tyres.

Currently built with tioga bar stem and post and an old flite. Drive is courtesy of race face turbines (i think)
Gearing is usually 39 16
Built mainly from leftovers from other builds.

I really like it to be honest. Seems nimble enough for me and i really enjoy riding it. Also like the fact i can ride it through all the winter crap without worrying too much about it.
