So this just touched down today after finding it on a German Version of ebay, most of you will be used to seeing or seen at least once corratecs most popular bike the TeamBow, well this is it's Underdog counterpart The Joe bow, Ive been digging around for information on it for the last 2 weeks translating endless amounts of german and polish text, emailing corratec themselves and they have provided me with a number of corratec catalogues to sift through and spec sheets :lol: The bike is stunning, two shades of blue with a yellow Corratec decal sat on a comic background, so without me boring you to shreds here a few pictures of this stunning bike, i cant wait to sling it down the trails :)

Thanks chris :) The brakes are original catalogue spec and a bit of an oddity, Branded Picon which corratec rolled out on most of their models, seems to work quite well, they function for both V and Cantilever. i have a feeling they are the German Tektro spin offs.
im tempted to roll out XTR all round and make it a bit of a trail blazer later in the year, if i can bring myself to get rid of the yellow :lol:
