The first time I clapped eyes on this company, was nothing more than a snapshot picture in MBUK, the actual image shown below.
The second time was in MBA, this time a far more in depth review, on the bike, the company and the folk behind it.
Having always like the underdog, it was easy to see, why this piqued my interest. (the reviews make for very interesting reading.)

They said the aluminium was un-weldable, the folk behind the brand, didn't make mountain bikes before this venture, there were lots of features I loved, the seat tube, the cable run, the bottom bracket, the rear cable pulley the straight blade forks, it was an E-stay, and the paint was cool.

In my world at the time, we hadn't long been given Yeti, the UK gave us companies like Bigfoot, so naturally I wanted the impossible, a "Mammoth".

Rumoured to be soon avaliable in the Uk, but at a premium, sadly from my memory it never came to be and never saw a UK importer.
This one found its way to Europe and im told hung above a counter in a Bike shop for decades never to be built.
I have owned it for a few years now, and am still tinkering with it, but finally getting there, (just need to swop out the straddle wires for the correct length which ill do when fitting the Manitou forks).

Looking forward to seeing this one!

Cable routing looks really interesting with that roller behind the seat clamp bring especially cool. Does that somehow double up for use with the front mech?
