Additional Info When I built this up, the frame was in pretty rough shape. I was going to paint it, so I sanded the front triangle a bit, but decided that it looked fine "roughed up" as I really wanted to ride bike. It seems the frame has bits from 2000, 2001 and 2003. 2003 chain stay, 2000 linkage, 2001 main triangle. The forks I bought new in 2002. As far as the vintage aspects of the bike: frame, forks, wheels, cranks and saddle. Everything else is new or new within the last few years. Wide bars, good brakes, modern drivetrain, fresh tires is what it is about for these older bikes. 26" wheels are so damn fun, especially with 200mm of suspension and all the modern upgrades. Even the rattling clang sounds are muted a lot by the clutch style derailleur. It's such a nice departure from the 165mm travel, 29" superbikes many of us ride these days.
