I saw this when it first appeared on ebay.

I was very tempted but since I was looking for a full suss frame I let it go. Idiot. :oops:

Watching this with interest.

Is that a disc mount I see?

Looks great. Those forks need to be junked though.

Needs something weird, a headshok like in the little pic (if the headtube is big), a lefty or a girvin vector or something.

Definately like this (the green one) version more than the other one... the front and back appear more balanced with each other


Al, are you fitting bags to this one?

I would really like a pair of Browning forks, but not seen a pair for a long time!!

Will probably end up with an AMP f3.

An action-tec fork but like the browning, you would need 1"1/4.
The Explosiv' was in 1"1/8, sorry.
But he made one for Fatty :

Lawwill Leaders would look great if you're going with a suspension fork.

True! not factored in the fact It's not an o/s headtube.

I'm running before I can walk... I'll wait til I have the frame before making any more silly purchases.

Not a fan of the looks of Leaders... a Quasar would fit the bill nicely!!
