Tange butted cromo, gripshift, STX, completely original except brand new tyres.
set up in photo for 5' 9" (and a bit) rider.

Appeared largely unused by first owner; I have serviced it and regreased the hubs as a matter of course.
Paintwork has some small spots to be touched up but is incredibly original and decals and bikeshop sticker are in excellent condition.

thinning herd because of hand injury

reduced to £99 West Sussex email me for more photos

Biography from http://www.barracudabicycles.com/company.html

Dave Southwell and Jon Wege were lifelong friends who grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan. After they finished school, they decided to go into business together. Out of this dream, the Barracuda Bicycle Company was born. Barracuda was registered in 1992 and was located at 463 Turner Dr. Suite 105, Durango, Colorado, 81301-3738.

One of the first things Dave and Jon did was to hire Tom Teesdale of TET Cycles to create the 4 original prototypes. Among other things, Tom was responsible for the geometry, tubing choice and sizes. They then went to see John Parker at Yeti, who was hired to continue with production. Mountain Bike pioneers Chris Herting and Frank "the welder" Wadelton were both working for Yeti at the time and were largely responsible for these early Barracuda bikes. They also built up the first bikes for the race team.
