I originally bought this second hand in 2004 to commute on - it was all original
and hardly used.
Over the years it's seen many guises, most recently as a single speed, but now it's back to commuting duties as the 700c wheels on my flat bar road bike were a bit weak when I wasn't in such a rush and wanted to try out some alternative routes!
The spec is a real mix-mash.
