Only one build in the garage, and its not exactly off road.
Best guess is a KHS Aero Turbo from '97 with Giant Aero all carbon forks.
Found a couple of pics and info.....but catalogue scans etc would be informative, but i'm not considering restoring to "default".
Toplines seem to sit on it quite nicely for looks, not convinced on the chain lines for running them as a double though.
The original paint is somewhere under the black, but i think the black is not the first respray it has been priveleged to.
Strip and powdercoat/paint will be done once i have tried a couple of rides, not convinced on the ride position as yet.

Position will be the issue.
But 5 miles?
Put it next to current roadie today...... bars are about 2" lower. But the reach was reduced. Not sure that will be a good thing. Will be hoping some gym work will ease the pressure on the arms and hands.
Worst case scenario, i'll have to build another bike..... shame

I ride this and it's OK. I wouldn't want to go touring on it but it's an amazing ride. I envy the KHS, although a KHS track frame would be even nicer.
