The name Probe is as bad for a bike, as it was for a car. Really it's not bad looking though, as MTB's go. ,,,,BD

None of my ugly bikes have had their pics done. I could do it if I had any spare time.

How badly does this hurt your eyes?

the fenders actually soften it somewhat, but still...

thanks. I love riding it; I just can't look at it for too long. Here's a pre-fender look:

I won't call it ugly since it's not my bike to judge. However, when I saw This Bike over on CC I definitely thought: "OMG dats... an interesting choice of components"
