    Here's my bike . It's an oldie but a goodie. It's a Giant ATX 990. XT deraileurs and hubs and a Girvin fork. This was considered a downhill bike in the mid nineties. This was the same kind of frame John Tomac rode when he was national downhill champion. It even has stickers with his name and championship on it. Later.

    Are those Noleen forks that you two guys are running? I've not seen anything new from them in quite awhile, to be honest. As I recall, they were bought out by K2, or was it vice-versa?

    Is that Girvin fork I see and Biopace chainrings? Tell me that's not an Avocet gel saddle. It's very clean. I'm just astonished at the condition of what I see in the picture

    I think you're right.. the C-dale has a girvin.. but I think the Giant ATX had the Noleen/K2 elastomer fork.

    Raiyn, LOL, yeah, that is the bike I rode in the early/mid 90s (now my xc bike). Pure old school; '89 M800 Beast of the East, BioPace chainrings, Girvin fork (with recent Mountain Speed spring find), Avocet Mountain Gel saddle, DiaComp 990 rear brake, XT thumb shifters, XT deraileurs, Salsa bar ends, Dart/Smoke tires. I did add new DK magnesium Iron Cross pedals, which I only put on because I ordered by mistake (I wanted black ones).

    wow... that's incredibly old school... I actually vaguely remember when that sort of stuff was high-end. Now it's a relic.

    Never thought I'd see a working example again. That thing's pretty clean looking from the pic. All you need is a Hite Rite

    No, the ATX has a Girvin fork also.

    Where did you get the spring upgrade. I've wanted to do that.

    Noleen/Girvin was purchased by ProFlex around 1996 (I think). K2 then bought ProFlex around 1998/1999. The fork line carried on until about 2002. Newer K2s use aftermarket forks. The cross-link forks were excellent cross-country forks and they had enough travel to possibly be considered for light-freeride and light-downhill. However, their main claim to fame was their ultra-precise steering... almost too precise and twitchy for some applications. They tracked as well as a rigid fork.

    Ah, so Noleen and Girvin were one and the same? I do remember their marketing pitch being that the fork travelled straight up and down when it hit a bump as opposed to the lateral forces exerted on the legs of a regular fork. I never got a chance to ride one and always kinda wondered if in fact they held any merit over a standard fork.

    The Cross-Link fork design is essentially a 4-bar parallelogram link suspension system.

    interesting, but what are the graphs showing? There's no actual legend or whatever to show what each axis means.

    Y = vertical travel component in mm
    X = horizontal trail component in mm

    What's the fascination with the hind end of that bike? Every link I clicked had a shot of the rear.

    It's not completely worthless. It could make for a good serving plate for a doughnut... or a bagel.
