Picked this up about a week before I moved back from Louisiana to Houston. In fact I had been looking for a decent one in my size for a few years, and they kept avoiding me. Then this one dropped in my lap for $180. Finally got the brakes ironed out today. It had issues with the mounts, they kept deforming and stopping the bushing from moving when the allens were tightened down. First time I have ever seen that. I guess Taiwan got a bad batch of brake posts that week? Either way, it's top notch now, and rides nicely. I recently put an older black Brooks Pro on it as well. Gave it a little more class, not that it needed it. XT with thumb shifters, and Suntour Roller Cam brakes.
