Hi folks,

finally got my Giant Sierra. Still dirty but soon to be a single speed cruiser.

why the obsession with single speed?

Leave it alone and keep it as it is, its quite happy that way.


or if you do, sell me the Mountain LX stuff....

I love the "GIANT" downtube decal - so much cooler than the ones on my modern roadie!

It's not an obsession at all, no worries. After talking to a good friend of mine today, keeping the original setup is back for consideration.
I have a lot of time to think so I'll just start cleaning it up and make sure the rear wheel will be running smooth again. It's kind of wobbly now. We'll see where it ends :D

Love Mountain LX. Actually, I forgot about it until this post. Can't wait to see the outcome.

Did you ever explain your love for the Giant Sierra?
