Just wanted to show what I bought for my grilfriend. Well, that will be the official statement. I just needed an excuse to buy this bike. And thankfully, she likes it! Saddle and colour are the only things she looks at...

Found this one in completely original state. Brake pads, cables, tires, all just how it came out of the factory. It has never been used for mountainbiking, so I'll take it for a nice ride one of these days. I guess this bike was ridden for only 200k or so, and was collecting dust the rest of it's life.

Thanks guys! I'm really happy with it too. Now I have a bike, with normal pedals, comfortable seat (even without padded pants) and a pretty upright riding position.
Great for short rides, when you don't feel like changing and/or riding your bike like your chased by a rabid dog :lol: .

still waiting for the rain to end for some more detailled pictures...
