Today I got my old bike ready for the forrest again :D

The main bike are from 1997/98 but the fork used are a "new" one (function are important when the bike are going to be used as supposed) :D

Here I come muddy forest...

Cheers
Carsten

Love them, bought them in 97, got plenty of offers since but they are on the bike to stay.

Check the stem it´s way more rare but damm it´s nice and full of viagra (stiff like hell) it´s a keeper for life together with the brakes :D

Bad light made the pictures so and so, can´t demand all but can try :roll:

just one last comment on your bike
design of the fork graphics don't mix the best with blue and white frame :wink:
all black or all white would be more classy :lol:
but I understand the "modernity" choice :idea:

You are absolutely right, I have contact to a airbrush painter which will have a go on the fork when I don´t need the bike a week or two.

The idea where that the carbon still will be visual but with a glass like fade of SID blue and white.

The bike had a SID XC Ti on before but sold it, I do still have a new 98 SID XC but it´s just not good enough for my use, unless it´s for the showroom.

Nice bike.

Is that a e-type front mech, and if it is, is there a bolt holding it to the frame?
I am building a carbon bike of my own and have a e-type front mech but no fixing hole in the frame, so it would have to only be held by the BB cup.

Cheers

Yes it´s an E-Type and there are mounts in the frame, if the frame is an Oclv you have to look at the 97-98 model to get that and also replaceable gear dropout. :)

You have to use the one with normal frame mount or you get trouble.

Cheers

Hi Carsten,

First of all; thats a real nice looking bike! Wow! Mine is yellow/purple. But i am thinking of providing it in full yellow with the purple decals.. I am now preparing the new decals.. I gathered some old school stuff too to tbuild my bike. But instead of using them originals, i thought of using nice shiny tuning brands of the 90's to fit on my bike such as Ringle< yes yes, Race face, syncros, chris king, xtr shadow...

Your language isnt that bad.. mine isnt also perfect. Cool how you mention it. Imagination.. I will soon send some pics..

Later m8
