Does anyone know WTF is going on here. I man seriously there is so much to look at here. #classicmtb #confused
New Fat Tire: Ready to conquer the Hollywood Hills: Go time!
Not all bikes that come to us are flashy and relatively new models. Take this bike for example. It spots a 26er MTB frame from the pre Y2K era.
We asked the owner to swap out to a newer and lighter alloy frame but he prefers to keep on riding this bike for as long as he can. It has taken him on many journeys during the ups and downs of half his life. Plenty of stories from his first rides as a beginner to how he rode it with his first beau and many crazy long round island and trail rides. It has been his one and only bike for over 20 years! Now how many of you can beat that loyalty and sentiment.
The old shox were pretty much dead, he decided to change it out to this workable Rock Shox SID and also opt for a full service. The groupset was also given a refresh with a mix of 10 speed XT and XTR components. Still not the most techy bike out there, but definitely a sentimental one to ride.
Nice to hear about the story of a bike rather than just getting it serviced and delivered.
Share your bike's story here with us too! We would like to be KPOs to hear from you.
