Been lurking but not posted in a while.
Was given this interesting Giant Box One the other day, never come across one before but I believe just in for '97 ?
It's got some nice Magura hydraulic brakes on it, not sure what to do with it yet.
Anyone else got one?

They were from 1997. Came fitted with an RST dual crown fork and were around£400-£500ish.
They were budget but that made them seem desirable as a teenager as it looked like a DH bike and I was able to fool myself that it might be within paper round money budget. It was not.

Thanks, perhaps I'll be on the lookout for some dual crown forks to replace the modern rockshox then.
I've read frame breakage on the seat tubes is quite common, I can see why ! It looks a bit vunerable !!
