Thanks for the props Sinnerman - but it wasn't Hotlines that brought these in, they were brought in by Zoobits. the only link I can find to them online is http://www.rst-europe.com/dealers/DEA-ZOOB.HTM they were 'absorbed' by Dawes back in 1999.

Might be worth looking into it with them or failing that, try Dale at The Silo http://www.thesilo.eu/
He worked at Zoobits in the DirtWorks days. I'm pretty sure he'll have more iformation.

Liking the one in the second link, without the 3 spokes obviously :D
I'll have to source a disc mount for the rear from somewhere :roll: :D

I think i may have to sell most of my organs :lol:

So what parts were the dogs doodahs back in 1999-2000 in DH circles?
I was only really riding xc and commuting back then :?

I'm thinking;
White bros usd forks
RF Turbine cranks
Mavic d521's on XT or Hope hubs

Is M952 too old? Should i be attempting a rear disc or a front one for that matter?

I need educating in the ways of the DH bike :D :D
