One of the wilder designs of the early 90s - The Grove X Frame

I had a couple of these on the line in the past, but never managed to land them. Luckily this one made it north. Its a 1992 with lower U brake and in nice shape apart from some chain suck as you can see. I didn't get a fork or bar/stem with it (yet), but I have a nice early FTW Accutrax I have been wanting to use on something.

The plan is to build it up as a rider for the spring and see how it fits. It looks really small, but this is a 17" medium frame. There's a 15" and 19" as well. The TT on these things is deceiving long so I am hopeful it will be ok. If it sizes out and I like it, I will probably get it repainted in some sort of wild Grove scheme once I get the parts together.
