Narrow tread badge puts it pre ‘01... I can’t access allot of my references right now but I believe the “special” was 97 through 00, I’ll have to double check that when I can... definitely need better pics please as well as the s/n (found on the bottom of the crank hanger) or sometimes on these early wheels near the top of the seat-tube, love to see details of the hubs, chain and of course, the striping!

Oh, btw, KILLER FIND!

What does the wheelbase measure out at??

Also, besides just being a "Special" is there a Model number on it anywhere? ( decal or ?? )
