Could be worse it could've been Shimano ZooGS or SooLX perhaps.

Now relisted due to new back wheel. Still with the Dogs shifters though

I kinda like the look of the frame and it's the right size. Could be an excellent winter hack considering that GS simply doesn't break or wear.
I just don't have the room or the time for another bike, otherwise I'd snatch this one up right away

Ha, there was someone on facebook selling a Dedadep stem recently, you know the stems where they can be used + or - and the writing reads both ways.
