    Another Wicked Lite (1993)

    I put the shock on within a year of buying...did not get the long travel manitu or Judy Sl for the geometry and weight. repacked/tuned the Judy XC a few years back and it gives 2" travel max but fun. The frame-set did not come with a "box fork" from cambridge but a unicrown (matching paint)

    Another Wicked Lite (1993)

    YES! with no disc brakes tubed wheel-sets and chain suck awesomeness. In any weather we rode from march thru december. And walking or carrying your ride was not a weakness it just was...sometimes for miles. Often ride out for tools and back to the stranded, depending, he he he.

    Wicked Lite serial # and paint color
