    I just broke down an old Rocky Mountain MTB, a high-end steel machine from the 'Made in Canada' days of the mid-late 1990s. I'm looking to clear out some of the parts, along with a few other MTB...

    This an unassailable claim only is one is firmly convinced that typical American usage is 'more correct' than, say, UK usage.

    Lovely, uncommon bike.
