My "new" commuter. After unexpected rear wheel failure with my slick-tired summer commuter and fall/winter coming in here in finland, did score this to cover commutes.

It´s gonna have mudguards. It has full grouppo of stx SE (shiny!) almost bit too nice to give a winter beater status. Has been also nicely maintained, which is nice.

It is buttled 4130 and weights whopping 13kg/28,3lbs as shot.
