The green looks nice, where were you planning on getting your graphics/decals from ?


I got sick of pestering GilM, and i went elsewhere, people may say the quality is not as good, but at least this way i have some bloody graphics on the bike now :roll:

Never ridden mine since i crashed it, i kinda miss it.

Its just needs a set of wheels, i`m busy building up a new wheel set for my Boardman hard tail, then the Mavic 317`s currently fitted to the Boardman will move onto the FSR :-)

Well Fugly!
How is the rear disk mounted - doesn't look like a sharkfin.

At a guess it has a hope adapter fitted.

Bike is probably worth buying to break!

Has anyone tried to fit a later Stumpjumper disc rear stay section to a 1998 ish FSR? Can remember someone wanting to try an Enduro disc stay on one. I have a spare '04 Stumpy disc bracketed stay section if anyone wants to try it?
