i brought the bike and it was a bit sad....
the stem was a not an atac unfortunately, the frame was the only salvagable part and some rusted kona p2 forks.

the guy had single speeded it, and changed to riser bars so it was not good.

it rides well, i tend to buy bikes too big for me, and it is a change to have one that is a good size. not great in anything technical, the forks make it handle a bit quicker and puts the front end a little lower than i would like.

more suited to flat and fast flat tracks than steep and technical ones. or i am just too much of a chicken.

It's quite surprising how quickly you get used to the narrow bars, low front end and quick steering.

I was very nervous of the handling of my Dyna-Tech at first but now am keepng up with the 'moderns' on most terrain.

It's great that you rescued this classic beast.... now tame it!

Cheers,

Chaser
