This bike is a true classic mountain bike! This is the mean, green, 1998 Pro-Flex 555 machine! I have taken this bike from road to off-road and back again and it performs amazing on both! The only problem I am having with it is the shifting; it slips on a few gears and I don't have the time to take it in. It isn't a huge problem, it is still completely ride-able. Other than that, this thing is ready to get dirty or for daily commute. It was my only means of transportation until I bought my new touring bike for my 89 day Europe trek. I would absolutely love to keep this classic beauty, but I can't due to my travels. It has some amazing extras too! They are:
-Rear suspension is still in perfect working condition! So hard to find with these...the polymer suspension was replaced a year ago and are said to last at the very least of 3 years with extreme conditions.
-New RST Omega front fork! Copy and paste this to check it's specs - http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002I469K6/ref=asc_df_B002I469K6999891?tag=stylefeeder-20&creative=380333&creativeASIN=B002I469K6&linkCode=asn - I had this installed about 8 months ago and it is phenomenal. (like I said, I really don't want to sell this!)
-Dual bell LED lights
-New Avid Single Digit front brakes (installed with fork)
-Bell under-seat bag w/ red LED light (3 different settings)
-Fairly new Kenda Komfort road/offroad tires with plenty of tread left and Green Slime tubes that a almost impermeable!
-Different peddles from stock with more grip.
I have invested a lot into this amazing bike and it still has many more years to come, I just can't have it sitting around while I am away. I would really like serious inquirers to contact me if you have ANY questions about this distinguished machine! $550 obo
