I reckon for £200 you got yourself a very good deal ;)

People have been known to pay £40 or so just for that rear disc brake adaptor :shock:

Welcome to the forum :)

That would never be a jump/freeride bike owing to the lack of suitable travel for that. You would ideally be looking for a bike with about 5 inches of rear travel, a coilover shock and 120mm forks (my opinion, but I dare say I am far off the mark). This, nice as it its, is defninitley a x-country bike.

Keep it, get out on the trails with a sandwich and some cake and enjoy it. Who knows, you might really grow to enjoy getting out there and having a great day out. if not, you should easily get your money back for it on ebay.

Thats my opinion, anyway :)

I had one one these exactly the same except it was a blue main triangle (mine was a "comp" badged frame).

Mine was a 1999 frame, but think they used the same frame 1999-2000.

Look out for cracks in the chainstays around the "pipe" joining them together ahead of the wheel, mine cracked there and specialized replaced under warranty with a beefed up version.

I also had the same disc mount (AFAIK the disc mount only come on "enduro models of the same era, but could be bought separately direct) and an BETD travel upgrade link.

Decent bike for £200, definately not up to jump / freeride but a great XC bike - would be better with a modern pro pedal shock.
