yep, well. it was until i sold the car for 240 quid. so my new forks are worth about twice the sale price of the old motor, seat ibiza 1.9d. was a brilliant car and never gave any trouble. only prob was the drivers door didn't open and much of the interior was ripped from chucking tools and bikes into the back of it. bikes worht about 2k.
and in ref. to the blokes with the cayenne. there was a bloke who came into the LBS and said he wanted a FS. mate asks him where he rides and style etc. shows him a meta5.5 for €2k. guy asked if there was anything better. obviously. he showed him a few bionicons and a liteville301. guy ends up ordering a 301 with the pimpest kit available, dt where possible, xtr, goodridge hoses, lyrik or totem etc etc. a proper do it all/freeride machine.
we met the guy out on the trails once and asked if he wanted to join us. he did. we waited for about 5 mins whilst he minced his way down the hill. rode on again and over a two ft drop where you must jump a gap in the process. he turned back and began pushing his bike up the hill.
i wanted to slap him and take his bike off him. he didn't deserve it. he talked down to us about the components on our bikes. decent kit but obviously not xtr, goodridge etc, telling us we'd go over the bars due to our minmal federweg or something would snap under the 'extreme' conditions.
there's us riding a 100mm sanderson HT and liteville101 ht. arrrrgh! ccok.
