Hi all,
New to this forum, so what better way to introduce myself than showing my newly acquired ride! Although I am not sure what exact year this bike is, I think it should be early 90's? Any knowledge on this is appreciated.
I very much like the smooth ride, I own an alu framed mountain bike and hybrid bike, but they don't ride as smooth as this one.. absolutelylove it!
It has a few rusty patches and veins, restoring that will be a project for the coming winter (suggestions on how to do this are welcome!). Other than that I think this bike is in great shape! Enjoy!
