Did you not read the details on that bike? The frame alone is worth the price...it's made of "multi-material". And the frame has been protected by the "body armor" stickers. Mars, you just don't know a good deal when you see one. :rolleyes:

Seriously though, it's amazing they had that much travel, even if it was a URT rear end. Brings back memories of my '95 Y-33 "downhill" bike. Thanks for the stumble down memory lane, Mars. :D Oh, BTW, don't throw that thing in the melting lava pot...the toxic fumes from the multi-material frame will eat a gigantic hole in the ozone. :eek:

Damned whipper snappers - know your roots. That was a pretty sweet ride in '97 or so. I remember sitting on a friends Mantra at the shop and marvelling at how plush it's whopping 6" of travel felt, that was alot of travel for a trail worthy bike back then.

It would make an okay grocery getter now.

I had one from the first year, 1997. it was actually a really nice riding bike. very plush but pedaled well. The biggest problem was with over 6" of travel in back it felt unbalanced with the stock fork having about 2 1/2". I eventually swapped on a 100mm Z1 (serious travel at the time!) and balanced it out pretty well.
