they are owed some serious respect........

Mountain Cycle:
1st Inverted Suspension Fork "Suspenders".
1st Off Road Disc Brakes "Pro Stop".
1st Adjustable Sub Frame To Size Bike "San Andreas".
1st Production Monocoque Frameset "San Andreas".

Often Imitated never Duplicated.

will have to weigh it, but expect it to be a good 40lb atleast :lol:

8'' front and rear discs seem big but are essential..........otherwise its quite a nimble bike, unless your going up a really long hill/long ride/carrying it!
