I know, it's still missing a saddle and a seatpost.

18" suspension corrected version. Don't forget there was also a 19,5" version, but only in later years.

I always wondered why they didn't bother to make a 20" version of these frames in the earlier years? Did they have an extra long top tube? which combined with the massive 31.8 seat-post (extra long) could fit tall guys? Or did Steve Potts just hate tall people?

Cool! Following for sure. Good luck with all the WTB stuff Moritz! Are you going with Roller-Cams or something else? Have you already found Multi-Mounts?

Roller cams for sure. Rear will be Toggle Cam. Yes, found multi mounts last week.

Oh wow! Congrats on that! Love Toggle-Cams. Those things are strong enough to bend seat stays but not the Phoenix. May want to track down some braces as well.
