I'd love to get my hands on one, but already know that there are none here and I'm terrified of the shipping costs if I get one in the UK.

Cleaned this up.

If we want to have a reasoned discussion about the Activator 2 (or 1) please setup a thread in Retro MTB and do so - and keep it civil. This is Reader's Bikes so not really the right place.

Stripped it ready for a clean up and re-grease the bottom pivot,which may help suspension work :facepalm:
Frame weighs 11lb and forfks weigh 4lb

Looking for lighter ones when budget arrives,got too many important builds on the go 8)

Good luck with the build and hats off for an ingenious weighing system :)

hmm, how much does Tintin's Trimble weigh again? I reckon this frame and fork are heavier than his entire bike. :lol:

Re-read the whole thing - that was a blast from the past.

Still a terrible bike though.

And still even worse bikes being passed off as 'bargain' or 'budget' when you'd hopefully though that things would have got bettererererer

Most definitely the worst bike in the collection , although I only have the frame on the shed wall as I reminder of what found me some good mates, and bike :)

My latest creation has been given to a fellow Retrobiker for test and review, as my knees are shot :(
I look forward to the post
