Hello guys,

I realized another dream !!!!

in the 90 ' I pedaled a rigid bike thinking a front .........but I was in love with this crazy bike, all amortized, 10cm front and 10cm rear. CROSSTRAC SONOMA.

I have both magazines mtbaction that described, October 1993 and august 1994

advertisements in the magazines were lovely

I remember reading the same articles and loving the design. It is still such a cool looking bike. Congrats!
I don't know if I have seen another one since.

Nice :D bet you could put some nice modern suspension forks on the front with lock out to match the rear shock ...and save them forks from riding on them to much :D Awesome bike mate

Really looking forward to seeing this one finished. Beautiful stuff, like all of your builds. Speaking of which, it seems that almost all of the pics of your other bikes have disappeared. :(
