In full flight :) Apologies for the modern oakley's :(

The descents never hurt as bad as i thought they might..



you forgot to apologize for the helmet and the tatoo's, too :lol: :wink:

pretty impressive, the Kula and you, racing with such an "antique" bike, when most of the other competitors are on full susser :)


Cheers magas.. The bike was surprisingly capable ! But I think it's easy to assume with discs/longer travel the norm that v-brakes short travel not the best idea.. ! I would and do ride this over long distance and it's great :)

Thank you :)

I'm pretty sure it's m950 levers(think they remained the same through the years from 97-03 ? Minor tweaks and called. M951/2 but all looks the same..
Hopefully someone can back me up/correct me ?

Hope this helps..

Col :)


It does, cheers :D

As it should :wink:

May have had to sacrifice the Kula but well worth it in my opinion, your Explosif is still one of the nicest '99's I've seen 8)

...and I'm still looking for one :roll:
