Bought another elevated frame :)

As I know MT Racing is Taiwan BMX brand, but they makes also few mountain bikes in early '90
That elevated model was oryginaly equipped in full XT m732 gruppo, but IMO this gruppo was a bit over the frame..
Frame is made of double butted Tange MTB tubes, is having interesting cable routing (in the bottom of top tube) and dropouts (like Yeti Ultimate :lol: ), but is heavy as hell! (my scale is for 3kgs max and shows error, so it have to be over it)

As the frame is light grey with some coloured print (blue, yellow, green and magenta) I try to fit not very popular grey Exage LT gruppo - I think that'll be the main direction of the biuld, but I'm thinking also about coloured details

Love it.

Would prefer it rigid personally though. But zocchi colour is great
