    Looks heavy and my guess is that it will pedal poorly unless the spring rate is set firm. Also wth an interupted seat tube, it makes getting a seatpost the serves both descending and climbing back up a little tough. A Titec Scoper would be a must for me on this frame

    What are you trying to accomplish with this frame? Do you own it or are you looking at buying.

    As mentioned, its an old frame (from what I can tell circa 1995-2000 but that's a guess), does not look like it has disc brake tabs, and a questionable shock.

    Is it easy to build...I would say it is not harder than most other frames to build, but again depends on what you are trying to accomplish (new parts, old parts, ect) and your experience building bikes.

    Give us some more information and you may get better answers.

    Crazy. Look at how the seat and top tube compress with the shock along with the rear end.

    Very strange. Especially when considering that the top tube pivot is only pivoted ONCE going to the main pivot. This is causing a conflivt in geometry when the suspension compresses. The suspension will be trying to push the frame apart a tiny bit.

    I say build it just to see how it rides (or doesn't ride for that matter).

    Technology has improved (a lot) since that bike was made. It would not be my first choice for a DH race bike (or XC, or AM, or any type of racing).

    As a project bike to built and ride around the trails it would probably be OK but for much else (including trail riding) there are better tools for the job.

    Save your money for something else.
