1998 Barracuda A2B

Postby madmark » September 25th, 2010, 3:58 pm

I had a 1994 Barracuda A2Rs that was stolen Sad . I loved that bike so much that I had to have another Barracuda. I found this 1998 on Amazon for $200 dollars. It was a great bike for 200 bucks but I had to make it mine.

I changed out the fork for a Rock Shox dart 3 with a lock out. New Cane Creek headset with a Easton E-50 Stem. I then went for a direct pull Avid brakes with new levers. Last I added a new Sel-Cof handlebar with a Vetta VL-110 computer. I still want to change out the pedals and I should be good to go..

That looks like more than 80mm on the front, if it is how does in handle, and what type of terrain do you ride most? a few of us were discussing what the effect of a 100mm or so would be on the handling of an older bike like these.

Well its been almost 5 years since I posted this thread. I went out to my shed to take my A2B Barracuda out and get her ready for a ride. When I seen the bike, I was like this isn't my bike. I still miss my 1994 A2RS and I want it back. I want my Tree amigo sticker. I want my purple MOJO Ringle Peace brake hanger. I want the scratches I put on their. I want my Onza bar ends. I loved everything about that bike and I am gonna try and find one. Hopefully I will find one. If I can't I'm gonna find a Barracuda pre-1995. Thanks for letting me vent and wish me luck. I did buy a new Peace symbol to match my A2B
Thanks
Mark

We have posted all kinds of 94's the past couple of years. I had 95 16" A2R go through my hands a couple of years ago. Keep your eyes open and a 94 will come your way. If you like the cromo, I would look into at least an A2M. They were the bang for the buck back then.

I might have found one after a short search.. http://norfolk.craigslist.org/bik/4946325279.html
What size frame do you think this is ? He claims its 18 inch but it looks kinda small to me? How much do you think it would cost to ship to NY?
Thanks
