Fantastic - finally get to see what mine should look like! (Currently frame only as had to strip for Voodoo/Muddy Fox build). Here's what it used to be like at one point:

That is really really lovely - as Joe said really clean, and a refreshing change as we just don't see enough DBR's here. :wink:

Have you had it from new or just built it to spec? Either way great job. I have really fond memories of my '94 Axis. Shame I have no pictures.

I really don't want to criticise but IMO would look way better with some skinwalls - Psycho K's or Smoke Lites!

Proper nice that Max.

I'm with Kev on the tyres, but thats just me being fussy :lol:

Mag's look sweet on the front. Didnt DB's used to use Mazocchi's as standard on their sus bikes though??

Where have you been in the past week?
:wink:
I agree, this is a good build. Clean parts spec, nice looking frame, and good pictures.

Whoa, thanks for your replies

I have a pair of Amber Psycho´s but they´re a little abused … currently looking for a pair of skinwall Psycho´s , DB's used to use ( in 1994 ) Mazocchi's XC 500 as standard on their Top bikes ( Axis TT - & Dual Response) but on other bikes used Manitou 3 ( Axis Tr ) Manitou M Sport ( Response elite ), Rock Shox Quadra 21 ( Response Sport ) and even a Suntour SR Duotrack ( Sorrento Sport ), next update will be a Tange rigid fork …

Some more pics:
