This is what I looked like the first go around

The handle bar was swapped out for a Titec flat bar and tires were changed over to a pair of wonder dawgs that I recived from a friend of mine for working on his old diamondbacks. I have to say I like the look way better now. If I may say so my self

Looks great, the real question here is how does she ride? How much does it weigh in at ?

it rides great. Definitely a 90's racer feel with the flat bars.:-) last time I weighed it it was around 27 -28 pounds

Yea see sometimes the old ones are just better arent they. There is a local trail here that has a big uphill and only one of my bikes will make it up the hill and its not any of my new bikes, its my 94 Univega that makes it up the hill every time. Newer bikes might be great but sometimes my old bikes can do what the new can do and then some. :mrgreen:

I have thought about getting a new Carbon 650b wonder, but if it wont perform as well as my old steel rides whats the point right?!
