    GIANT mtb from the thrift store........

    I got a "Butte" from the thrift store. It's at least 16 yrs old...('92 parking sticker on it). I got it just to mess with, but its' starting to look better than my '94 Iron horse. The Giant has a bio-pace crank, Shimano 200GS components on a good straight cromo frame. Was this a better bike than the Iron horse AT70 (Shimano GS70 components)??? Can anyone remember back that far??

    Thanks for your comments......

    You should be able to date your bike reasonably closely by going here:
