Still is and still do.

I bought my STS-2 full suspension in 1997....it looks great, but is still on the original tyres.

Hardtail gets it every time.

Great additions to this thread - thanks everyone!

Can anyone advise what disc brake I should use on the Dave Lloyd if I decide to go that way - will this hope work:

Did they use a special hub?

Cool thanks - I've PM'd him - after looking at the CATSWISKAS above, I think the disc brake is a real feature of the bike, giving it the clean seat stays with the delicate wishbone and it would be a shame to change that.
