 Ah sweet, back to black? Big Grin Can you let me know what size bb you have in there when you take it out please? (I think 73ex113mm with the mrp)

 Yes indeed, got some repro decals too! The BB is out now, but its at work so im not 100%. I think the Shell is 68mm but with the MRP i think im using a 73 x 127mm because of the humongous cranks.

Have you got a Lobo too?

 Very cool Retro DH bike, with old school Hope Big'un hubs. I think that frame has 150mm or 160mm rear travel?

 Thanks! youre quite right 160mm it is, same as the old school monsters

 I remember when these came out, wanted one but could never afford it. What cranks/chainset is that? They look mental!

 The cranks are Middleburn DH, super rare and pointless seeing as they use a square tape bb!

 Buddy, Monster T is 175 mm + 5 neg
The 160 mm fork was the 1998 Manitou Xvert Carbon, but the Lobo was from factory fitted with Boxxer 151.

 I see the rebound adjusters are like splitted, or just camera distortion?

 Wow, no idea how you can see that but yes they are a little over used shall we say. Damage from previous owners I guess but they still function if your careful.
