This is a super lightweight climbing machine, done up in classic steel XC fashion. It's been my pride and joy for over five years, cleaned and lubed after almost every ride (hey, nobody's perfect). I still get comments on the trail from those who appreciate its old school cachet!

The small 14" frame size is well suited to smaller riders, I'm 5'9" myself (about a 31" inseam), and I've done 40-60km days in Bragg Creek and Nordegg without any trouble at all. My girlfriend also really enjoyed riding this frame (5'7", 28" inseam), she found it to be an ideal fit.

This bike is essentially ready to ride! If i was planning on keeping this bike for next season, I'd get the rims trued up, replace the brake pads, and that 'd be about it. It would handle everything you could throw at it, from Sulphur Springs to Race of Spades.

I bought this bike for an absolute steal five years ago, from a guy down on his luck, needing some money. Now I'm in the same situation. I'm headed back to uni for another semester and I'm worried about paying the rent.
