I had a 1989 GT Karakorum K2 that was hanging in my rafters forever. It is a solid bike, but seldom ridden so a few years back I put Tom slicks on it and used it for Urban Assault riding, just for tooling around in regular shorts and regular shoes.
Since I started commuting to work again, I needed something that was a bit more utilitarian, so I thought why not put fenders on this so I can ride to work in my business casuals if I needed to with out getting all dirty.
So here is the bike today as I got home from work.
Yeah, shes not much to look at, but WHAT A FUN RIDE she is! The Slicks pumped up to 100psi make it almost as fast as a road bike, yet it blasts through gravel covered streets and water streaks like nobodies business, and with out making a mess on me. I can't believe how fun this bike is, it brings back the freedom I felt as a child on a bike.... Nothing to serious.
I park down town in a locked compound, so she is pretty protected, I hope it does not get stolen, but at least it's a bit more indiscreet and hopefully thieves will pass it over for flashier mounts.
Yes that Bianchi saddle is funny, but it's in better shape than the Original GT saddle. I want to maybe put a rear rack on it later.
