Picked up one locally for next to nowt recently, with the same rear suspension problem, but managed to get mine freed up. Took it for it's maiden voyage last weekend. Not enough rear suspension travel vs weight & complexity of the rear forks. I'll stick to an RTS I think! Balance were not a bad bike at all, just didn't make any sort of market impact as the world was flooded with fat Al frames by that stage.
