This thread can live but it probably belongs in the vintage section at this point.

If anyone finds one of these in mint condition these days, it's definitely a collector's item, although it's not as novel as the trail/XC models with the Noleen linkage forks.

I love my Beast

I have had a Proflex Beast since it was new. I have upgraded the rear shock to a CVI racing gas shock, put rock shox recon forks
on the front and put hydraulic disks on it, using Elemental Disk Zeros with a swing arm adaptor.

It may be old, it isn’t latest tech, but I can ride the arse off it down technical trails. I’ll never change it....

no kidding about the buried part. my buddy just dug an evo 4.0 out of the trash. looks like he wants to do a slight retro upgrade and use it as a loaner/beater. she is no show pony thats for sure but with luck will make one laughable swamp donkey:thumbsup:

It was in response to a request

I did this years ago, and posted pictures in response to a request on here yesterday .

I still love the bike, and probably will keep it until I can no longer ride

Some of us don’t just chase shiny new things.
