I picked this up today, size 14.5". It seems remarkably under used, any idea of age please?

It has Stx / Stx RC through out. I must confess I went to see it hoping it had the decent wheels I need - which it doesn't, but I bought it anyway.

I was thinking about stripping it but it is too good for that and my son is now eyeing it up instead of his rockhopper. It may be too big though. I have some 2001 Judy Race forks which need brake bosses which I may fit but they are the wrong colour.

Any how pics:

It even has the original pretty well unworn grips.

After looking at other bikes here does 1996 seem about right?

That is lovely!

Unless my memory is failing me, it's definitely a '96. Nice going.

Well I won't upset you by saying that he dropped the price because a wheel was buckled!

Nice find!

I would keep the bike as it is. Please don't install those red and too young forks. If you sun insists on a suspension fork, find some nice Judy SLs in yellow here.

Well my son has really taken to this so his 13" Hardrock will be for sale soon.

He likes the idea of staying rigid - unless anyone has a Marzocchi canti adapter for sale?

In the interim how big a tyre will the frame take - I want something a bit bigger than 1.95? Will 2.3 fit or will a 2.1 be about the Max?

Oh and the miss matched wheels have also gone.
