First post, I registered at this forum because of this thread.
There's some sweet FSR's in here for sure!!!
I bought my stock Ground Control FSR new in 1998, slowly upgraded all the components to M950 XTR over the following 4-5 years while riding
offroad 2-3 times a week with a couple of friends (one had the 1998 FSR Comp and the other the 1998 FSR Extreme), then stopped riding for
a while (too long).
Just got her back out a few months ago, and been riding it on the bike paths to try and get back in shape before hitting the trails again.
Anyway, I put on a set of Rockshox Tora 302 u-turn forks, new grips, seat, pedals and a set of Kenda road tires (for now).
I almost forgot how much I love riding and this bike!
After changing the stem to a Salsa and the seatpost to a Raceface today.
I just bought a bone stock FSR elite Max Backbone
a few weeks ago (I always wanted one of these) and tore it down to the fame and crank
to build back up over the winter.
The Manitou X vert R fork had a crack in it so I will be replacing that along with probably just about every thing else that came on the bike.
If anyone has a Sharkfin or a different link or shock they wouldn't mind parting with (wishful thinking) please let me know.
Sorry to just jump in here on my fist post, and start posting pictures, but I love these bikes!
