A very unique frame
Sums up the 90's MTB era in a way, where guys would just build something on an idea without the countless hours of r&d and cad work that builders use today before even picking up a welder.
Guess the idea and design didn't die completely though when you look at bikes like the Yeti Bigtop 29'er.
Shame your thinking of selling due to lack of space (one sure way you'll regret it down the line) if it were me, I'd sell off the parts and hang the frame on the wall :D

Hey sinner!

Really cool pics :D
That bike is totally awesome, thanx a lot for showing!

And yes, the 1st gen race lite wheels were CK. The 2nd gen, like these, were DT. 240 hubs if I recall correctly. I have a front 2nd gen wheel and it weighs 10 g more than my 1st gen wheel.

Thanx again for awesome pics 8)

The original ones were Bontrager by Chris King. I've got a set on the P20. The later ones were DT
