Found this online here in Norway. It was cheap, about GBP 100. It seems original apart from the tyres. It has XT 737 Parallax hubs and I am not shure if they are original. According to the mighty internet, these bikes came with STX hubs....

Grip shift is now being changed for some Deore thumbies, cant stand grip shift..

That should be great once cleaned up.

A very good find for only £100! Wow!

Does anyone have any info regarding the handlebar? It is a Titec Bontrager of some sort and I have heard that some of these were titanium. Does anybody know?

Nice bike! I’m slowly building mine up after sourcing parts off the classifieds here.

I was lucky enough to find an almost original spec bike, no need to find parts :)

I am thinking of taking it all apart and shine it up a bit, but there is so much else to do and other bikes that always beed attention, so not shure about that at the moment.

First, albeit small, outing on the Kilauea. The frame is a bit bigger then what I am used to, but its a sweet ride!
