Kinda looks like a Superlight, but the tubes look wrong and the swingarm is different.

Looks like a nice bike though, there's some neat bling bolted to it. 8)

I was also gonna say it loks a little like a superlight, but as you say it's not quite right (swingarm).

You could also try posting on UK-MTB.com (link in sig.)

its a strange one i was running a gary fisher cake but was getting tired of changing the pivot and shock bearing all the time and all the parts are about 3/4 yrs old so i bought the frame and built it up as my work bike. and now i can buy my self a new wk end bike and the wife cant complain

That's a similar colour to what I have in mind for the Karakoram when she gets her face lift. 8)

That would be cool. I have a RAL chart, so I can see it 'in the flesh' so to speak. :D
