Old but light and nervous MTB bike, rebuilt for commuting and gravel rides. Bought in 2012 for 70€ with bad wheels! Step by step I changed everything around this amazing frame. My first 1x setup. So many urban miles with this pretty machine in 8 years. Sadly stolen in Marseille (december 2020)

Current Stage Info:
The old XT transmission from 1995 was quasi-destroyed, and it's actually more difficult to find high quality vintage parts than recent 2nd hand parts, so… The new transmission is a so fashion (and really good!) 1x11 XT. Such a groovy bike.
