I didn't know a lot about it but yes it appears to be unusual at least.
A turd worth polishing me thinks! :lol:

Thanks Mike, if you could dig out that article it would be great. I'm struggling to find anything out about it other than the reference on Bikepedia.

Ok, couldn't wait so I picked it up tonight and just had a quick look in the mancave and it's a bit of a mixed bag as follows:
It has a 1 1/8" headset
Deore LX F&R mech
XT M739 shifters
XTR V brakes and levers (soon to be for sale)
Sugino Impel 500 crank (soon to be for sale)
Mavic 221s on STX RC hubs
Judy XC fork (soon to be for sale)
My current thoughts are that I will run it rigid and off load some of the components to fund the build.
