Not a Retro classic by any means...
Bought in 1999 as it was one of the first light weight production hardtail frames available with a disk mount (hayes).
The wheels are 1998 Mavic Crossmax disks which have been completely rebuilt a few times - front rim is wrong
Brakes are Hope Pro - an ususual version of C2's with Hayes mounts.
Drivetrain is XT (workhorse)
Purple Answer Hyperlite bars and X-lite bar ends for that retro look
Manitou X-Vert 100mm forks - third set as they always crack at the brace but I like the feel of them and they are cheap to pick up these days
Mount for the kid seat so I can take one of my little boys out.
Mostly used to commute 14miles offroad each way. But recently hammered round Glentress including the big jumps in the freeride park and the elevated trails in the Ewok Village.
This is another frame I have tried to break... but sadly I have failed... so far
He's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy.
95 Kona Explosif Singlespeed/Fixie - 100% Thrashed since new and it's still very well loved (and it looks it).
Dave Lloyd C.A.T.S W.I.S.K.A.S - Built, ridden, loved, and sold.
