    I had an FXC same as NickC’s above. It cracked 3 times and I couldn’t be bothered sending it away for months to the U.S.A. for a second time so threw it in the recycling skip.

    I always wanted a Foes with the massive Curnutt air shock.

    That Foes really needs an F1 fork on it.

    I really wanted a Foes DH bike (in red) with the huge Curnutt 2:1 shock and Curnutt triple crown forks with the huge 30mm front axle/hub. Probably a bit overkill for Devon though.
