I fell deeply for this bike recently. It's not quite as old as my usual passions but i think it looks a realy nice transition between where MTB cross country bikes were in the early 90's and now.

I believe it's 2001 S Works kitted out with XTR with Marzochi forks. But does anybody think they have it in them to work out the full spec :?:

For a bonus point, who is the rider and what has she just won on her Specialized :?:

:D

Looks like a Manitou fork.
One of those tasty Manitous, where the red paint fades away on the arch to reveal carbon fibre, very sexy but I cant remember what they where called.

X ray grips?
Xray rear tyre and tube too...

I'm not going to get the specialized book and cheat.

Yes Xray special that.

You mean these Manitou Mars.

The decal on the side in the original photo has a more solid swoosh behind/under Manitou in solid yellow. Maybe an earlier version.

Further research would indicate Manitou Mars Elite or Super as there is a damper adjuster on the lower right fork leg. Also not sure if I see a disc mount on the originals.maybe they did them in v brake version.

Go on get the book out.

:D

Yes you imagine correctly :)

Now for the bike. I found a stock photo but Marga's is far from stock.
