    I have had mine...for quite a while. I think it is a 2002 with a replacement swingarm (the original cracked at the pinch/pivot bolt)
    I cleaned it up this morning in preperation for a time trial this afternoon with a cross country race in the morning.

    Anyone running a 5" fork on their SL? I was thinking about moving from a creaky Fox RLT to the Marzocchi All Mountain 1 set to 110mm travel.

    Here's mine.

    I got the frame at Ebay and transferred everything from my GT Avalanche. It's my first FS bike and it is sweet!

    Thinking of upgrading some components on my SL. What shock and Fork are you running? What about brakes and wheels?
