Gavin Lee's Giant ATX Team '02

With a budget of less than AUD$ 3000, this bike was built using proven and lightweight components.
Tried a 2002 RockShox SID SL but found it too flexy and expensive for my riding style,
the Duke XC is smooth and robust, half the price of the SID too!
Future planned modifications include upgrading the derailleurs and shifters to 2002 XTR.
The Mavic CrossMax wheelset was purchased from the shop owner 2nd hand, but he only rode them
a few times, wheels were almost brand new, good value at half the RRP!
