Post 3 Peaks, and with most of the 853 decal rubbed away, another update with IRC 700x40c tyres (thanks Roy!) - it's now a monster truck that rolls but doesn't grip over everything!

Image

Clearance at the back is very tight on the front mech and at low revs there's certainly some tyre rub.

Fortunately the local woods aren't full of sticky mud and leaves....

I got mine via US eBay and a friend who was visiting from Vermont in 2008. With the exchange rate the price was very reasonable. Very, very reasonable.

I suspect that doesn't really help.

That's the team paint scheme circa 1999, IIRC.
One of my favorites.

IF really used to have it, if you know what I mean.

Very nice bike and like the color. Cyclocross bikes are great fun. Its the closest I'm going to get to riding a "proper" road bike again.

Chrome gives me a malware warning on this thread. Seems to come from content that comes from frameforum.org?
