It's a sweet little bike, and I quite enjoyed getting it dirty!

It still has its original brake housing which is.....flexible....to say the least. So the brakes are more of a suggestion than anything, which made steep descents on sloppy gravel pretty exciting!

I'm planning on putting new compressionless housing this winter, which should make a nice improvement.
