All sorted now !

That looks 8) . Like the 'Travis Brown' style Judy's. Very trick. Are you running the DH second damping cart ?

What year is that bad boy then ?

Cheers, running a DH leg cos the SL original was wafer thin and I crimped it with a Hope 185 1st gen clamp! sourced the spare leg from tf suspension man, when an ali damper was fitted at the same time. I kinda liked the look, so when I split bikes down for a re-fit used a XC non hanger bridge for the complete look. Sucks and to think last year sold a shock bone, cos it was knocking around!!

rutteger, scored the frame of the bay, mailed the frame number to IF, they confirm that it is a 1999.
Question is thou, is that suitable to be classed 'retro'?
cheers ti-fat man

Hmmm. Retro or not :?: Good question.

Definitely a retro build. Bits are all mid 90s as far as I can tell. As for the frame year wise I'd say it was on the edge. Since IF came out of Fat City I give it my old school seal of approval :D
