    Sorry for the delayed response, it was an 01, and I sold it to a girl that wants it for commuting for $450. It needed a good amount of TLC and some stuff replaced.

    Yeah, back to the OldsCool!!

    Look vs. Reba:
    Look - more expensive, lighter, lateraly stiff, unusually looks (WoW effect continiously);
    Look has bobing when climbing, but it effect less vs. telescopic forks.
    Reba have pushlock (lockout) & then it turned on, bike was as rigid! With Look Fournales - not at the same.
    Reba works a little bit smoothly, but it depends by pressure in air camera, also for me not enough travel 80 mm.
    Look - very hard cleaning after muddy rides & sometimes needed service (lubricate pivots, bearings, etc.).
    Now I building new full suspension bike (base: Anthem Advanced 09 frame) with Reba, Formula K18 brackes, Shimano 540 pedals & others unkilled parts for weekend wars in muddy condition including!
    NRS will be using for asphalt & dry conditions for longlife components. They good woorking in the mud (hadn`t any problems during all day in muddy conditions), but requare service more often... I`m lazy for this

    P.S.
    Sorry for my Inglish, I just learning it & a little practicing here!

    A friend just gave me a 2004 NRS frame with RP23 and WP fork. This will be for my GF who has never had a mountain bike.

    I just ordered a SRAM X.7 build kit off of PricePoint. Should bring my build to $500, including parts that I already have like stem and handlebars, grips, tires.

    I am hoping that the money will not be wasted. No obvious cracks in the welds or paint. Prior owner was pretty light and not gonzo. Shock and forks might need to be PUSH'd, but I am such a fan of my PUSH'd Trance that I can see my way to that solution. I'll clean and relube the pivot bearings before the build begins. Hopefully it will work out, and I can post it back here.

    Thanks Igor!
    I've tried Sram 980 and XT and can truly say that Shimano XT is the best value for my preferences. Freehub is feeling fine with it
    So I think it's a quite fine rule to use cassettes with "spider" with alloy freehubs.

    In my bike DT 240s hubs and SRAM 990 cassette on spider, or you can use XTR.

    To close the loop on my NRS story here I did sell this one at the end of last summer for $575. I think I maximized the return for sure!

    Great to see so many NRS models still in use and feeling the love

    Nice to see the NRS is still alive. When I saw this frame new from Giant for sale at a sports swap store here in BC, I had to have it. I've never ridden one, but heard a lot of good things about them so I said for 200 bucks new never built, I will take my chances.The only Peeve I have about this frame, no guides for rear disc brake line...what is up with that?? Anyway after I got the bike built, I have never ridden a bike that just keeps me wanting to ride and ride for hours!!!.I do however find the frame a bit flexy but that could be due to being I am a clyde, but doesn't matter I love the bike. After the pics were taken, I did fix the rear cable housing. I know the handle bars are a bit over kill for this bike but I'm a big guy and I need wide bar being I have very wide shoulders.
