Not sure on the year , pre 1995 I would say as it has a cable stop for canti brakes .

I know it is not period correct , it has a front disc brake , Dual controls , shadow mech , and a Sid fork , but i wanted to ride it .
I am waiting for a ti bar , and looking for a ti stem as the position is not great .

Took it out this afternoon for a 2h30 ride and it is great . Climbs really well . Very light for a full sus ( forks weight next to nothing ) .

really pleased with it .

Hey, its built! How many inches does it give you in the rear?

Glad to hear it rides well. Would swap out the stem and black the cranks if it were me.
What did the frame weigh bare?

Not sure on travel and weight , I was in a hurry to go and ride . :lol:

Stem will be titanium , and cranks , not sure on black as the carbon insert wont come out very well .

One of my favourites (even though I'm not into full suspension). I'm not mad for the white bits and for the bar-barends, but I know what you feel when you HAVE TO ride NOW
