Project 2003 - 2000 Oryx Superfreak
This project involved a Canadian made Oryx frame named SuperFreak. It was a copy of the great Specialized 4 bar suspension, but built up beefier in the rear triangle than the Specialized. I think the rest of the specs were pretty much the same as the Specialized FSR... The Silver Marzocchi fork and the Chrome rear triangle made me want to make more parts silver instead of black. This bike felt much better leaving the ground than the suspension felt landing. It needed a spring on the rear end. The marzocchi fork was the first I'd tried, and I've had 4 since.
Even this low end, spring 0nly fork felt so plush.
