Based on the height of your saddle, it doesn't look like the bike is too small for you. Maybe you just have to adjust the length/height of your stem.

Picked this up last weekend - 1994 KHS Montana Comp. Mostly original; I changed the saddle, tires, stem, and grips. The frame, made with True Temper AVR tubes, weighed in at 4.45 lbs. That makes...

These conversions are fun. Here's my second attempt. I used Sora brifters, and 105 triple crankset with the large ring removed (it interfered with the Ubrake). I like this one better than the...

How Were These Tubes Joined?

There are no welding beads at the joints. Each tube joins cleanly with its mating tube.
It's a very clean look. Why aren't more frames joined this way?

The frame is a re-powdercoated Look...

Thanks, robatsu.

The stem is a Kalloy AL-222. The tires are Kenda Kwest 26x1.5.

I have had success this way - Secure one crank arm in a bench vise. Put a steel pipe (about 3' long) over the other crank, and rock it back and forth.

Yeah, I think you are right, T-Mar. The frame does appear to be well made, if not a little on the heavy side. The damage is only cosmetic. And for the short period I was on it (about a five mile...
