Let the frame do the talking.

I've tryed to use it last monday and... wow!!! it's very faster (but less stiffer) than my RM slayer... The magura brakeset ar ko...so I've decided to search a set of Hope Race Tech also for this bikes (after the MonoMini ltd2006 with carbon lever of my other mtb)...probably a pair of black one...or a set of new RaceTech3 in purple edition but I don't know if purple looks ok with this bike...
26 aren't dead!!!

Spring have bring some new parts for this old-school xc race full :-)
finally i've found a fork adequate to the frame (a 2003 Pace RC36Stealth...)...
I'm now searching for a pair of Hope mono mini with race brakes-lever or a more modern Race x2 or similar... and another step will be probably a modern crankset... pheraps in a 1x9 config
26" aren't dead!
