Just picked this up and really impressed with the frame and fork although have yet to ride it.

Can't take any credit for the build as other than tyres/pedals it's all original.

I am planning on kitting it out with some lovely purple though :wink:

Looks to be very nice condition. I love the paint on these.

I like the look of that (except the tyres)

I know what you mean,

Just wanted a matching pair on it and thought I'd try em out.

Lovely, I was very tempted to add it to mine.

The original tyres would have been Conti cross country baja rustwall tyres.

Rode it at the turkey twizzler and can confirm it is a great bike offroad and very forgiving.

Mind you I didn't ride the wildslippers, trusty fire xc pro's took care of the traction duties.

Only critisism is the 170mm cranks, I can't bare them :evil:

Think I'm going to purple it up a bit, so if anyone has a 27.0mm purple seatpost :wink:
