I may be Wrong but im sure ive seen a twin front disc DH monster somewhere in Glasgow about 7-8yrs ago,i think it was a giant frame but i cant remember the fork,it was f*** huge, i thought at first it was a motocrosser ,but you dont usually find an xtr crankset on one,10" of travel easy.
Anybody seen a twin disc front at any races or meets?

If you're in Wilts, where are those photos taken? Looks a sweet little jump spot!

these pics were taken at our local woods in westbury over the back of leighton sports center it is a good place to ride, the track is nothing like it used to be :( i spent most of my yrs riding around this area :D although me and my mates have`nt been up here for sum time this is overgrown now as you can see from the pics, same goes for the downhill track we made on the side of the hill, what a laugh that was :lol: but now we are starting to get things back together a bit now, its a great place for building the jumps, its a sandy kind of soil but packs down hard like clay, i just wish that all the kids that go there would take there rubbish with them, it used to be a well known place to go about 10yrs ago

That'd be the 'SuperMonster T' with 12" of travel :shock: possibly :?
Maybe a Hanebrink 2001 Team WFO
Or Risse Big One :?:

Yup, STS is great. I can't resist to buy one as there is one good looking with Judy SL and most of original XTR nearby. Price is great - around 500 quid for all but storage problems seem more difficult for me. I would have to sell my FSR first to have some place to sleep :-)

On the subject of spotting things.... Is your handlebar stem upside down?!

I just bought one (It was cheap = Impulse purchase!) and have no idea what to do with it. (Parts wise)
