GO TO MY LAST POST AS NOW SETTLED ON FINISHED BIKE. THANKS TO ALL

Just bought this locally. Can find very little info online. I was told it was bought August 1997 £1600! I'm not interested in value, I got it to ride as I need to get fit and fancied tinkering. Rear shock is a bit soft with my weight on it(18+st) so should I invest in a shock pump and risk increasing the psi?

Any info re model and spec would be appreciated. Thanks

Also how do I access my profile asi misspelt name!

It says Muddy Fox Rock n Roll team on crossbar. Everything is shimano Deore inc brakes. it says JUDY Dh on shock stickers ( i put the rock shox ones on) The front tyre was too big for the back frame gap! Didn't realise it was oversize? original had perished along with tubes. other tyre holding pressure ok... The large front sprocket appears to be anodised in a gold colour. Wheel are Mavic and still had tatty bits of sticker on "SUP" MAVIC ? any info appreciated or compliments re condition - all original but was in need of a good clean and a bit of TLC.

I have a quick review of this in a 1997 copy of MBR magazine. Will add a pic tomorrow of you're interested.

RRP was actually £1,800 as it's got lots of high-end kit on it. Looks very tidy and original!

Is this not a much later muddy fox? Because I thought the earlier rock n rolls were a different bike frame style ala
