My first and only mtb. I bought it 1992 and have used it ever since. The drivetrain has been replaced a few times and I have repainted the frame once before. This spring it was in very bad shape and I finally decided to give it a new life as a fixed gear/ single speed.
Updated with a slightly different setup. Gearing is now a more functional 2+2 with 44-16 fixed for the street and 40-20 singlespeed for terrain.
Pics soon...

I've always loved SS mountain bikes, and this one is no exception. Good job!


I´ve been using the bike as commuter this winter, with studded tires and fenders. Recently ordered some new stuff for my summer cruising. Will update with new pics.
