    Hello Adamburr, I happened upon your post and I'm the winning bidder of your bike. I'm looking forward to getting it and I promise to take good care of it. It looks like you did. I would enjoy knowing any of your history with it. Good luck with your next bike. I am a So Cal mountain biker since 1994. I love the older bikes and this one looks sweet! All my best! --Mark (Animator/Mt Biker)

    Hi Mark. I was the original owner, bought it at Wheelworks in Somerville back when Chris Chance was making them by hand in Somerville. It was a custom paint job for someone else who never bought it, so I got a deal. The Wicked Lite was their long wheelbase bike with long chainstays and slack angles. Great for cruising gravel roads. I used to ride it in the Blue Hills mostly but for the last 15 years it has mostly just seen light around town street riding. Hope you enjoy it!

    Hi Adam, Nice to meet you. Do you remember the year you purchased your bike? Also, what's your next ride going to be?

    Sorry I don't remember the exact year but it was late 80's or maybe early 90's. Probably right around 1990. I'm riding a Diamondback Catch now, probably weighs twice as much as the Wicked Lite but better for the extremely rocky trails around me now. I'm planning to get a road bike next. Piermont Bike rules BTW, they will do a great job taking care of the sale.
