1997 onwards is spot on, borderline retro by standards here, but right in the hot spot of the Full Suspension revolution I think. Oh and not any closer to the maker.

Here's another view of the rear end:

Maybe you guys are too Anglofocussed, remember, I'm from the continent :wink:

1998 One of these frames was on display in the London Design Museum

Bingo!! we have a winner

It is a Storck Adrenalin:

Is this Storck the guy from the "team Storck" paint scheme for Klein bikes? That would explain where he got some of his inspiration.

odly it was the design museum clue that gave it away for me, I saw the exhibition it was in...then a quick google for "storck & design museum" led me to the winning ticket :)

Sweet looking frame, nice to see what the modern ones evolved from! And yeah I see what you mean about the klein-a-like paint :)
