Am on a bike no spend for at least three months. You must have enough stuff to build it up?

Bianchi used the same double parallel link system in 96. A friend had one he used for DH. It was stolen at the Worlds that year.

While cleaning/ stripping parts off I've found 2 small cracks
1 on the bb/seat tube weld
Another on the lower pivot weld right hand side
I'll post pictures up when I get chance to take some
I may need a little advice :)

A bloke I work with had the 70 model, which is really nice. Light weight but has plenty of travel.

Bad news about the cracks on yours. Were they mentioned when you bought it?
