Thanks guys. I think the ultimate looks good in a smaller version like this one. What do you think?

Are the latest pics blurry or is it just my screen?

I thought it was just me gettin' all teary-eyed while wishing it were my bike. :( I have a 17.5", but I'd like to try a 16" also.

Beautiful bike!
XT parts and gumwall tires look right at home on that bike. 8)

A bit more compact and raw in a way.

You can buy them new from "first flight bikes". They made a deal with Panaracer and reproduced this model. Cool tires for any late 80's early 90's mtb.
