Yes, GT Quatrefoil.

Takes 700D wheels/tyres originally which are near impossible to get. Good news is 650B is only 3mm smaller diameter so rim brakes should still work.

Most 650B tires bead on the same rim. Tires are not an issue. Have an easy thousand miles on mine this year.

Surely that's a bargain for £300!

If only I could convince the Mrs! :(

Actually mine runs on 26" wheel from the factory, but many of them are 700's..

Besides been really heavy, it tracks straight and rides very nice..

91 and 2 were 700D and they went to 26" wheels on the Quatrefoil LX in 1993 when the model decals were moved to the top tube.
