2001 My Canadian Tire mountain bike.

A bike I bought in 2001. I just wanted a affordable mountain that is fun to ride.

A steel Y-frame copy of the Trek mountain bike sharing the same design.

Mercalli shock fork.

basic cheap plastic/ alloy type.

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
48/38/28 tooth chainring on 170mm crank arms.

Base Shimano 7 speed rapid fire shifters/ Derailleurs.

Saddle/Seatpost:
Alloy post

Brakes:
V-brakes

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
26 by 2" Diamond Grip tired now replaced by a set of 26 by 1.9" road tires for a better road bike ride.

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
26 by 2" Diamond Grip tired now replaced by a set of 26 by 1.9" road tires for a better road bike ride.

Accessories:
Monogoose cycling computer, bar ends.

More Info:
This bike is a heavy one but still fun to ride. I set it up so that it has the basic measurements of my Vision Orion road bike set-up. I am now using this bike to commute to work. I get the same average speed as on the Vision Orion road bike. The bike feels a lot like the road bike a well. This has become my car for now. I have pulled the car off the road for the summer months. Enjoying being out on the bike much better! I replaced the off-road tires with a set of 26 by 1.9" tires. They are far more suited to street riding. A set of fenders has been added as well sence the bike is being used in all weather conditions.

How do you like the supercycle fenders on the mountain bikes? Does the rear fender still splash mud on you?

It still is running good. I have not used it too much after I bought it but I am getting it out this year more. The rear suspension is not what I thought it would be but getting it a bit tighter helps out when using it on the road. I can not say it is the greatest bike ever but given the budgets I have to get things like bikes, it works OK! I look forward to doing a bit of trail riding before the cold weather comes.
