well this is the bike that i first started off with while i was gettin into MTB and i have realised that full sus is soooo anoying especially with that swing arm that gets in the way of the front mech so i cant change it!! its an Apollo Abyss so dont buy it!! i have changed nearly all of it..
all my upgrades/repalcements:
1 front wheel
1 back wheel
1 front tyre
2 back tyres
1 front disc mech
all new cables and cable housing
3 rear mechs...now got shimano acera..alot better!!..want sram
new shimano deore rear v-brakes
4 new inner tubes
1 slime tube for both wheels
yes that is all..i think i have spent loads on this bought it for about £250-£300 and i rekon i have spent about £200 on it + services..cant belive it!!
good frame + crap components = apollo bikes + nighmare + fourtune
i keep my bike clean and im always out on it weather its too college or to my m8s or to work or jus for a ride .. im more into XC so next i think im going to buy the new 2006 hardrock pro in black and white..looks sweet
some pics below of the apollo..well wots left of the original!!
