Nice bike, looks Ozone to me as it has some same features as mine.


Ozone co2 was a later incarnation of the Bigfoot Smokestone. Seen a few subtle differences between them. IIRC the cable routing on the top tube runs literally along the top for Ozone. Mine runs along the side.

Some other incarnations include plate type drop outs, and scallops to the chain stay to allow a bottle cage on the down tube.

I did say the differences were subtle!

Certainly tidier than when we first saw it.

Nice work.


You're not wrong there mate. Thanks again for letting me have it off you in the 1st place. (although I have probably saved you a few quid :lol: )


By the looks of it I would agree. I'm looking forwards to picking up the RC35 legs from Bob Jacksons in 2 weeks.
