I have definitely heard of these, but from when I was a kid and only cared for how cool a bike looked and not for any information about a manufacturer :roll:

Lets hope someone can throw some light on it :)

I'm sure that brand was discussed on here a while back. Seem to remember some one saying they were main by another company then stickered up :? Got in my head that it was our edam munching, dope smoking chums from across the pond that had the info :?

Could be worth asking in pre 97 chat as there's more trafic through there.

I definately read about the frame in Dirt magazine back years ago. That would have been within the first 12 issues since launch Im guessing.

Just a thought if you know anyone with access to them!

Haven't got it here yet, but i'm assuming it fits in front of the seat tube when the rocker is moved forward to its proper position...or not :D

Anybody got any DIRT magazines from 99-00?

Give the member silverfish a shout he will fill you in on all the details, i believe Hotlines were the importer for these in the late 90s early 2k model years, if my memory serves me right, if he doesnt know no one will... 8)
