    That really is a bad ass bike. Weight?
    Zip ties? Not on my bike!

    Want:
    650B rims or wheel set. 80's vintage 32 or 36 x 135mm

    wanted this bike in 95 but as a 6th yr college student and new dad i really couldnt afford it.

    fast forward. ive been looking for this frame for abt 6 yrs. not any 16" around until i found one in AZ craigslist. i live on hawaii and the nice guy sold it to me as almost a complete bike

    the ride is strictly a commuter to and from work. RT 6 miles
    also rode around with kids around hood
    ride is great but i need to get used to the rigid exotic fork. i havent ridden without suspension in a long time

    33t is used and the 44t is just there for looks and acts as chainguard and so the chain doesnt drop
    was just to lazy to take it off

    Seems like the time money and effort it took to track down and build up your dream bike from decades past deserves better than commuter duty. But I guess that's why I ride a 99 hardrock to work (really ugly bike, but I don't worry about theft).

    I still have a 95 Trek 9900 that gets regular trail duty. It was the most expensive bike I've ever purchased and probably ever will purchase since I'm a bit more frugal these days. It performs real nice with a modern 80mm fork on it.

    my trail duty is a more modern FS bike Klein Adept. i dont see it as a waste to only use vrc bikes for commute. to each their own. at least the bike aint no trophy bike and is still being used

    Are those Conti Town and Country 2.1's? I just bought a pair, but haven't put them on yet.
    Don't call it a gooseneck.
