Not too many of these frames around that haven't cracked already, and if it's not cracked then it probably wasn't ridden, like this one. I built this up with the original XTR group I got with a bike back in 1992/93, although a few components got replaced for this project. Of note is the 39 piece SRP Ti bolt kit that came with the original group, but otherwise it's a straight forward build. One thing I found is that the Avid Rollamajig is pretty much required to keep the long length of derailleur house in check during suspension action.

Hey DC very nice! Although I'm not a fan of aluminium frames the ones from Manitou always caught my eye. Beautiful cnc work on those.

Hi,

this is a really fine bike. But see, here both of them are the DH Version, they have bigger frames, they don't crack ;)

The red is really a refreshing change from every other blue/polished one I've seen. I think these are a great representation of the CNC era.
