Built up for a friend... Older model GT Passage with horizontal dropouts and no mech hanger.

A great little find of a frame, and a fun ride for a lady of short stature. Geared low and outfitted with flip-flop hub and fixed cog for future adventures.

Problems included (but, not limited to):
Canti bolt broken off in stud... replaced with long-reach calipers from the parts box.
No clearance on the chainstay for a big ring... reverse the chainrings on some mtb cranks and go with a 42 tooth (1mm to spare. Near-perfect chainline.)
No 25.6 seatpost on hand... shim an ever-popular 25.4 with aluminum roof flashing.
