My little road pootling bike (yes I am a short arse, but I also like small bikes), bought off YoGrant a while back and now 'retrofied' properly with Salsa stem, american classic Ti post, mavic mechs, nukeproof hubs, king hset, but with nice 105 shifters, brakes and cranks to keep it running.

Rides as smooth as a mink codpiece - niiiccceee!

Wohah. Can't believe this one slipped under the radar.

Awesome looking bike, would love an old skool slingshot mtb. Look pretty scary though. You fully trust it? Just imagine putting the power down and that down tube cable letting go :shock:

It feels really firm side to side, but has a nice bit of give up and down. I ride this one about 50 miles a week around fairmount park here in Philly, but always check that steel cable before and after just in case!

John,

I raced for Slingshot, including a shot at Race Across America. Don't worry about the durability, they're solid.

Have to dig out some old pics...
