Hey Z!

I'll fight you for the ACX frame!

No? Okay i'll give you a packet of chewy and a used shoe lace. Deal?

But seriously... What size is it? Looks like an 18". Is the head tube split or is it okay?

Wooowah...looks like Jez and Carsten has some competition on their hands...really nice collection Mr Zero..are there any bikes out there you'd really like in your collection?

For me the holy grail is either an original Doug Bradbury Manitou, or a pristine Pace RC100...*dreams*

Hey Rich,

To be honest I'm feeling pretty caught up at this point. However, there are just a few I still wouldn't mind picking up:

1. Salsa Ala Carte (working on this one at present)
2. Ibis Silk Ti
3. Brew 200 Proof'
4. Manitou FS (also working on this one at present)
5. Dekerf Team FS (AMP B2 design)
6. AMP B3 or Mongoose Amplifier (with dual down tube design)

I got a B2 frameset (the one with the double down tubes) when they first came out and decked it out with M900, Control Tech bits and HS33's. Got rid of the forks after I wore the bushes out twice in 3 months, then bent the seat tube on the frame. Not a good experience... but i'd still get one for posterity's sake if the opportunity arose.

Here's a few more. The pics are a bit old, so the kits have changed a bit since then. But you still get the general idea. :wink:
