    Just picked up a 2nd hand one of these and was wondering what riders can tell me about them, such as ride, flex,angles, which fork upgrade to get etc?

    Photos are here.

    1997

    That there is a 1997 model team issue, with I believe reynolds tubing the full frame, orginal build came with a marz bomber, silver mavic 221? or 223? rims/ xt hubs, gripshift x rays? and or xt rapid fire shifters along with johnny tomac edition magura rim brakes, racefaceface turbine crank and panaracer trailblaster tires

    This was a very fast and nice ride given the steel frame and agressive xc geometry at the time, I liked the bike, however, never owned one, just kept my tuning up my buddies bike saturday nite before sundays o cup race

    Thanks for the info. It still has the X-Rays working well too and the Atom 80 fork. It does handle nicely and is very quick. Loves to climb which is good. May find a bit nicer fork in the future for her.

    I was looking at a new old stock frame only a couple of years ago. If you look back in the archives there was a thread about it.
