    Stolen fade orange/yellow San Andreas?

    I remember hearing the one that MC made was stolen? Anyone know anything about that? Was there more then one of those made?

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but are you saying there was only ever one Mountain Cycle San Andreas produced with the orange to yellow fade?

    The reason I ask is I'm about to buy one which and have been assured that its the original factory paint job! I'm pretty sure it is original as it has ALL of the original decals. It is a 1999-2003 VPS model.

    I thought that was the case. But, I have seen others out there. I thought it was done for the MBA test. I believe that bike was stolen. But maybe they did more then one.

    You could ask here. Ill have to add you to the group:

    Thank goodness for that, was getting a little worried for a second there. I've requested to join (my surname is Miller).

    By they way I love you polished San An, how do you find the Spinergy Xyclone Enduros, I'm thinking of getting a pair?

    Thanks Shawn!

    Sorry I meant what do you think of the Spinergys performance wise, heard a few say they flex a lot and others say they don't?

    They absolutely do not flex if tensioned properly. The flexibility of a spoke makes no difference in the overall flexibility of the built wheel. Also, they stay very true. Most people who say that have never even seen Spinergy wheels in person. Iv'e taken some quick downhill corners on pavement and they are rock solid.

    That's kind of what I figured, all those that can prove then own a set say how good they are, those that claim they flex always seem to be the ones who have a 'friend' with a pair. Gonna bite the bullet and order a set off eBay asap.

    Am I correct in saying you have the 'Enduro' version not the standard 'Disc' version?

    Thanks for the feedback buddy I'll post up in here when I receive them.

    Yes, the Enduros. They are a little bit heavier at 1850 grams/set. But the wider rim works better with the bigger, but light, high air volume tires that I like.

    That's what I thought, right I'm off to find a set on eBay, can't wait to get them now I've spoken to a real owner like yourself.

    Many thanks, I'll keep you posted!

    Even better! Need to get an front axle machined up to fit my DUC32 forks too, they sound like they'll be perfect.

    Thanks again for all you help and advice, I'll let you know when it all comes together, feeling like a kid at Christmas!!

    Make sure you run fork stop on the frame with that fork.

    Don't worry, I've seen too many dual crown dented San Ans, mine isn't going to join that group anytime soon.

    Thanks for the warning though buddy
