Hi!

Here’s my daily driver, but unfortunately due to xxxxx miles ridden on it, I had to update the components about 10 years ago. Originally it had Alivio/LX gearing, some Sunrims on Powertools hubs and IRC Mythos XC’s. Back then I updated it with XT gearing, Deore cranks and Mavic Crossrides. Those Maxxis DTH’s came later. Only original parts these days are frame, fork and Powetools brakes. Btw, any idea was that Powertools some house brand of KHS or does someone know more about it’s history?

Currently I use it for taking my small daughter for rides, longer gravels rides and occasional pub adventures. Still going strong! Steel is real, but elastomers are not.. :lol:

Really like this. Love the colour with the skinwall tyres. What with are the tyres 2.0?

Very nice indeed :D

Thanks! I got the 2.15 versions which have been perfect for my use.
