My Cuda A2R

Post by RatchAttack »

Back in 2001/2002 I was riding my very loved Barracuda A2R. I'm not 100% sure of the year but it had the teardrop downtube and the Tree Amigos sticker on the seat tube.

Custom built spec with a Rock Shox Judy SL, Shimano LX/XT/XTR, Mavic wheels. I sold the bike in the spring of 2003 and have regretted it ever since.

The A2R's come up often, so a replacement should be sought easily. Many of us here comb the usual sites (Craig's List, Ebay, Kijiji, et) so keep your eyes on the marketplace page!

I've been browsing Kijiji and eBay regularly. No luck thus far but I'm pretty patient for something like this.

They're tricky though, you have to search the sites using tools in order to see results from ALL locales. For Craig's list, I use a tool called Craig's Pal, and I know some others here use other tools too...

I may be able to help you out there but no guarantees. There is a guy I know who picks up 95 1/2+ cuda frames from ross warehouse sometimes. When you see the nos ross made frames on ebay he is the one selling them. Anyway I'm pretty sure yours is the transition year and I think I have seen him with these before. Ill keep checking in from time to time

Ratch Attack,

I have picked up 5 Ross built Cuda frames from bigalscycleworld on ebay. I know it is not an A2R but I have a 96 18" A2E that I built, rode, and have now returned to frame status just sitting around. If you would be interested I could post some pictures and would be happy to sell it for $65 (Including shipping). I have thought about relisting it on Ebay but have just been hanging on to it. It is silver and dark green and has the Tree Amigos sticker on the seat tube. It has a few scratches from riding but it looks great. The same offer goes for anyone else on this site if Ratch Attack is not interested. I have been putting the finishing touches on the Dos Equis Team Frame and will be posting some pics soon. Hope I can help you out!

The 96 was a transition frame with tree amigos decals. It is actually a really nice frame and I think you should consider it if you want a steel frame. Its of the tange ultimate breed. I have this and a 97 too.

Will, I actually know al, I've been to his store a few times. He told me he has another guy "will" that bought a bunch of frames from him too lol. Al gets some cool stuff in from time to time, I check in every so often. He gets them from the ross warehouse. What I wouldn't give to be able to visit that place! He told me that a couple years back he got more of the high end ones and full susp
