Following on from Gravy Monsters rather fine Apex, I promised to post this up
This was the next model up from the Apex for those who don't know, similar frame but True Temper OX instead of AVR...not sure what difference it makes to the ride though! I picked up the frame with most of the original parts (M730 XT) on a bit of an impulse from Ebay as I lusted for one of these back in the day. There's a fair bit to do though, including removing a stuck seatpost
Below are some early pics of the bike stripped down and having the various extra stickers taken off. Note the splatter paint, it looks a bit odd from a distance but sweet close up..
Several bikes, one supportive lady and still trying not to buy anything else!
