It could well be a 1995, 1994 is just what it was advertised as and i've yet to find anything that looks similar in terms of decals in their ranges from back then so I went with it :)

In that case she's a mere 12 years old rather than 13!

Looks really lovely and "clean", just my kind of thing. Maguras work really well, but those zip-tied brake lines :(

Yeah, well, the frame wasn't meant for maguras and as such the guides are for v-cables and will not take the magura hoses unless they are drilled out, which i'm not really wanting to do as of yet :)

You don't need to use the zip-ties.
Your local bike shop should have cable guide adapters that take a hydraulic hose and will fit inside your cable stops.
I can't remember their proper name, but I always get mine from Leisure lakes bike shop, and they come in polished Silver, dull Silver or Black, and are made by I.D.

Another option used on mine...

...is to use a wire between the bosses with a sleeve that takes the Magura hose inside. Again, I got this from LL and it has been used since about 2000 (on another frame). If you look hard enough, it is just visible on the top tube. I think I used this method because I had a problem with the cable adapters on this particular frames' cable guides.
