As far as I know, THE bike was not raced =still worth riding, not a noodle or likely to have the tube failure.
I doubt myself or the bike are 'contenders' really. I might entry level XC race's heavy @ 22 lbs, but I practice hillsprints. Grrrr!'s my all-round bike, and so solid.
I'd have to spend 700 to get a solid bike that would last 5 yrs, this one is funky, rides great, custom to my fit\ride style AND I had the great past time of building\restoring\tweaking it.
I had my fun, and still do.
