    A "NEW" arrival ...

    Just got this in the mail today and as I had previously been asked about Yeti rider scans in the past, I snapped a photo of the cover. Then I paged through and couldn't help myself ...

    I'll post some of the thread specific names in their appropriate places as well if that's OK with the Mods.

    Nice, I seem to remember owning that mag, back when mags had decent racing coverage.

    going slight OT, I remember buying a mag or a guide or something back in 98. Only thing in it, had prfiles of all the pro riders, and their bike, then look at all the course for the world cups, pics, maps elevations. Was brilliant, think it was put out by the Uci or something.

    All look fine to me, unless Tomac is riding on the ceiling.

    That sounds awesome. I'll have to keep an eye out for it though I must admit to waning interest for things past about '95, maybe '96.

    Yeah, I was still stoked by anything until about 99 I always wondered if there were more of them. Must admit I am dissapointed by the lack of racing coverage in mags these days, well the last 15 years really. But only 2 weeks till the world cup is on again, love to still watch the XC... (is it wrong that when I went to the worlds I was bedazzeled by the XC guys, skill and fitness, but after watching the underwhelming DH practice with all the try hard look at me I know someone and namedropping couldn't even be bother to watch the DH finals and went shopping instead?)

    Oh and the other day I got a pile of GT catalogues, paid not much for them, but a HUGE amount in post as nobody seems to have the 96 catalogue... and guess what, it has everything you could ever want except the Tech shop stuff and the specs for the 96 Xizang... the 97 I got with it has it all, but not he 96. Stupid, me for not checking, I'll bet the other pile of catalogues the guy was selling has it all, but not for another $100 post hahaha.

    Still should scan up for retrobike archive..assuming my scanner can scan that big!

    I've been looking for one myself but no luck so far. Want to make mine a '96 Furtado build. Actually prefer M900 to the 950 but my frame is obviously a 96 so ...

    I have a copy of the '96 catalog. If you're looking for info on a specific bike I can take a picture of the page. The catalog is too big for my scanner.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    That would be great.

    I'm sure Mik_git and I are interested in the same thing - '96 Xizang.

    Thanks

    WTF is tied around Miles' waist in that cover shot?

    Oh, I also heard a rumor Missy never actually went to jail. Anyone back that up?

    I scanned the 96 catalog (on a 9x12 scanner/lots of pasting)The xizang isnt in the one with King on the cover,or the mini catalog.

    I know that guy on ebay.He bumped up your shipping to full boat cause he's a nice guy.

    Any other GT riders in that mag?

    There's minimal info on the frame. The frame is pictured at the bottom of a page and little other info is given. Here's what's there:

    Thanks for posting that. I remember that issue and every pic you posted there. Which is strange because I can't even remember what I had for dinner last night...
