The Cadex is finished in it's current guise... it is the ex Beavis frame and is currently sporting Pace RC37 triple clamps until some elastomers for my Manitou 1's arrive this week!

Was hoping to get close to the 10 kilo/22lb barrier, but in truth it's 11kg/24lb.


1993 Giant CFM3 Carbon tubed with Alloy lugs frame
Pace RC37 XC forks (as above to be replaced with a minty set of manitou 1's with freshly purchased carbon brace!)
M950 Chainset, V's, levers, shifters, hubs, cassette, mechs
Mavic 517 rims
Syncros post
Onza ti pedals
Club roost stem (waiting for nice ATAC to turn up), not sure what I will run when the M1's go on
Ritchey Bar
Tyres are Alpha bite and Psycho...
Slightly porny Onza bar ends and USE Ti spinstix

Rides surprisingly well with the silly forks on. Will post more pis when it goes back to the M1's...

I love the Cadex CFM-3 but they lose there appeal to me as soon as the unique original rigid forks are removed, they set the bike off imo.

adding suspension forks degrades the bike to looking pretty standard.

Looking good ... I'm starting a strip/clean on my 93 cfm 2 soon :)

Was going to run it rigid looking for the correct fork ? Failing that a p2 :)
