    Have gone to look at it? He's been advertising for a while. I went and bought a diamondback expert tg instead.

    So while emailing them to pick a time to go look at the bike they offered to just give it to me for free... Went and picked it up earlier tonight. I thanked him a few times and he just mentions he has a habit of collecting bikes lol.

    Here are some bad pictures of it. "sorry"








    dia compe brakes
    sugino vt cranks 170mm
    suntour front/rear derailleur
    brs edge levers
    sr seatpost, stem and bar.
    araya 27" rims to shimano hubs that are schrader valve.

    TT measures 57
    ST measures 62
    Its a little tall for me but same TT as my pake

    I think once i get some tools ill service it and ride it for awhile but not sure what ill do with it because it has a tall ST but it shifts decently just needs cleaning.

    over all its in pretty good shape, very little rust. paint isnt that great but mostly intact.

    thoughts?

    Here is a pdf of an old review by Shelson Brown:

    I had one several years ago, liked it, had the frame powder coated and installed DTI's. Nice riding bike, not very fast, I sold it to a buddy who still rides it and love's it.
