the christini AWD is the pinnacle of bike evolution. sand, mud, snow, brush, gravel, rocks, impossible inclines... nothing is more fun than playing "follow me" with my christini all wheel drive!

christini update

i haven't visited this site in awhile... not long after i took these pics, i bent the rear triangle toward the drive side. on the same ride, i broke a chain- maybe the 180mm cranks are a bit much. anyway, i sent the frame back to christini, and they replaced the rear triangle with an updated version, and rebuilt the pivot. i was worried about wearing things out, so they sent a replacement set of gears, clutch, and a bunch of other drive system parts- for free. i was told i wouldn't have to worry, but i'm planning on keeping this one for many years. i've crushed chips of rock and grit that got kicked into the drive gears repeatedly, and the anodizing doesn't even show it. it's a hard, hard finish. anyway, two thumbs up on christini.

beautiful christini, solid

beautiful christini, solid concept, but common - barends?

yes, bar ends

i've been riding mountain bikes longer than suspension has been around, or the internet for that matter... and i've run bar ends since i got my first pair of onzas in 1991. no riser bars for me, thanks. if a bike is an extension of the body, then bar ends fit into my equation.

whoa...great machine...never

whoa...great machine...never saw something like this before...
what's the weight of this thing?

weight

under 27, which is pretty good. the drive system is under 1.5 lbs.

That thing

is fucking nuts!
