hi i've just brought this bike off ebay for 140 quid (cue everyone telling me how ive been ripped off ? :P )

anyway i hope to do it up, used to be really into mountain biking in the mid nineties untill i discovered beer, but wanna get back into it now im gettin on a bit !

was just wondering if anyone could confirm which year model it is ? i think its 96 but am not too sure

more pics to follow when ive done some work on it hopefully

I bought a 93 M400 for £65 about 6 months ago (then found this place looking for info. Have since bought another 3 bikes :shock: so be warned! ) but its REALLY tatty.
Has got a good mix of XT/DX on it tho so it really depends how yours is kitted out.
Looks a lot nicer than mine tho...

Mines currenty residing in Germany so I can use it when I'm out there.

Looks good to me buddy, just get rid of that shovel and the sofa :lol: would say the price is fair too, should be a nice light usable bike. Give us a parts rundown too looks like some upgrades.
