    Rebuilt my XCT after 5 years of great riding. Dropped the frame off at Foes and they had it powder coated and rebuilt the air shock.

    What did Foes charge to repowder coat it, if you don't mind me asking. I just got my shock done.

    They charged me $200 for powder coating, though the frame I brought in was raw aluminum to start with so no stripping was required. I think they send them out to Olympic Powdercoating in Orange County.

    That's not bad, I figure they would charge me $100 extra to strip it down. I really love their candy blue metallic color. Thanks for the info.

    And again, Cycleworks invited to it's all year meeting. Many riders and their rokets came to meet.

    There were some awsome highlights that Cycleworks organized from Foes fund and brought to switzerland.

    Fab Foes 001, the first frame that Brend Foes welded in 92 with 6,5" suspention travel and started a new aerea in mountainbike sport.

    LTS, light travel service, from the year 95, the first serial production.

    "Weasel, the legend lives"
    It needs no more words.

    DH Slammer, th predecessor to DHS Tube and the DHS Mono 2:1.

    "The Missle" Missy Giove's original worldcupmachine of Global Racing Team.
    Custom to the max

    There were some prototypes to see:
    SSV, Kiddie Trike and The Gator Fixie.

    And of course there were some new highlights from the bikefaktory of Pasadena:

    Hydro, FXR, F275 and Shaver 29"

    Monkeyheadcycles brought his pinstripemaster and he garnished by request.

    And of course the man at grill and the lady at bar took this Cycleworks event to a complete success.

    Picture speek louder than words, check it out...

    Cost me $130 to have Olympic strip my old Turner and repowder; that green may have cost extra due to a silver base prior to color but Turner cost is similar, possibly due to the legwork/shipping as I went directly to Olympic.

    Beautiful man, she's a pearler, can't think of a more worthy frame for what many would today consider a retro build project. I much preferred the tube version to the monocoque LTS, looks way tougher. Although belonging to a slightly later era, the rare as hens teeth Shivers should be a great match.

    Back in the day, there was no more desirable bike than the Weasel, it was quite simply THE bike to have. The San Andreas and Santa Cruz Heckler were both considered worthy alternatives, but they weren't no Weasel, and they certainly weren't no Foes. Brent & Co were pushing the slack, low slung, 6" trail bike at a time when that kind of thing was considered the exclusive domain of crazy heavy gravity rigs. Look where the industry is now, thanks to the pioneers at Foes, encouraged by visionaries like Richard Cunningham.

    Few, if any other bikes of the period came close to the Weasel's 'bring it on' agricultural engineering and attention to detail. Despite the industries transformative evolution in design, fabrication, and reach since the Weasel's incarnation some 15 years ago, it continues to stand alone as the most immediately recognisable bike of the late 90's era. This is for good reason, the Weasel's as purpose built and ready to rock today as it was all those years ago, an eon in mtb terms.

    What other bike can you think of that continues to look like a serious, modern trail bike from that era? This was when Specialized were pumping out the FSR, which although a decent bike for it's day, was pathetically under engineered by modern standards. I mean, it's pivots were a sloppy-ass joke, virtually none of the duallies from that era survived more than a few years when ridden properly.

    Good luck mate, are you going to try and stay period specific? If you're ready to blow some serious cash, you'll probably want some AC (with chain guide) or retro XTR cranks, retro XTR groupo, Azonic Double Wall bars and Shorty stem, Rhyno Lites, 3" Nokkians, and one of those ridiculous, blue and red Tioga lounge seats. The early model Hope and Formula disc systems from that time were most common, and a total pain in da ass, requiring constant attention. True to the period, the swing arm only facilitates rim brakes anyway, such was the preference at the time, being far cheaper and more reliable. Forget about Magura hydro rims brakes, they sucked too; really finicky, and quickly devoured expensive pads in the wet.
