    I used this bike on 8 rides(my only MTB experience). Never crashed. Excellent shape, looks brand new
    except for few very minor scratches from sharing space in the back of the Cherokee.

    Rocks for single track and climbing. Seat suspension post is plush, feel of a full susp without the
    disadvantages. This is a bomb proof hand made steel bike. Weighs in at a mere 24 lbs. Been described
    as "Light, quick, responsive, and durable."

    Good backgroud threads about Bontrager: Search in Google Groups "Re: End of a (Bontrager) era" and
    "Re: Bontrager bought by Trek"

    Will send pictures to interested parties. Have short movies showing trueness of wheels. Send e-mail
    if you want me to send.
