Well, here's my '97 Ground Control FSR Comp (though I'm not sure if this thread is for pre-2000 or a post-'98 bikes?)
I've had it from new, first reading about it in MountainBike Action magazine (they'd made it their 'Bike of the Year '97') and then bought it from Leisure Lakes in Daventry after seeing one on their stand at Bike '97.
I've upgraded bits and pieces of it over the years, though I still have the original seat stays, front fork and rear shock, though everything else I took off it went onto another frame which I later sold on to a mate (1994 Specialized S-works Stumpjumper FSR)
As it is today
More pictures of it are on Flickr here: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjuv3JW8
while it's spec list is here: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=150822
Heya Bartsimpsonhead; is this really a 97'? I've got this FSR DH here with the exact same frame and the first 2 numbers on ther serial number are 99. I thought that was what told me what year the frame is.
