Hi,

I'm not really bothered about how much it's worth. Would just like to improve a few bits on it. It's good for commuting at the moment and it's giving me a good reason to learn a bit about looking after bikes. I need to learn a bit more about secondhand forks before I commit to buying.

Regards
Rufistar

I had this same model in 17, best riding frame I have ever had. I fitted it up with all top end period correct parts, apart from the forks, which i used top end Reba dual Airs, with the negative springs, they were Matt Black, so matched the frames' paint really well and I could adjust the ride height to suit the geometry. I used all Orange Ano parts on it, CK headset, Orange clamp and bottle cage bolts, Avid Mag brakeset in Orange.
They are a really comfy ride, frames soak up the trail buzz really well.
