Where it all began - I started mountain biking with the local shop on this beast. It was too big for me, too
heavy (about 39lbs with rack and tools!), and I couldn't fit bigger than a 1.8" tyre on the back because of
clearance, but it got me started, served me well, and meant I knew what I was looking for when I bought
Stumpy a couple of years later. After that my dad rode it for a while, before I had it back with slicks on for
commuting. It has since been passed on to friends.
Initially just for riding to school on - hence the full mudguards, dynamo, rack. But I got into the mountain
biking lark, and it survived a lot of abuse.
