At the start of March our son shifted and as sons do he filled a section of our garage with his gear. Unloading his 11 year old mountain bike with "here Dad try and ride that!" Just the challenge a bike obsessed eclectic cyclist needed.
The deep blue paint and the GT triple join have long interested me. I like the open weld flow of the aluminium frame to which the paint has adhered with minimum chipping although our son rode it like a typical teenager.
The large size frame is suitable as my daily ride, but does shake its head when riding hands off.
Initial surprise at the narrow tyre profile and small conrtact patch have not been an issue with the bike only letting go on a very short section of gravel climb during the afternoon commute.
