2019 bike and none too shabby for it , looks gorgeous, yes, that’s certainly a repost, but if it’s this good, hell yes.

Like it despite all the obvious lol

This bike deserves wayyy better rubber & a dropper, it’s maybe a summer blaster for now (goodridge hoses, or whatever, point toward a low maintenance winter ).

Seriously how do Ardents still exist? They're like the Millenials Smoke Dart. Enough!

Except Smoke and dart were actually descent tires for the era.

that's actually one of the biggest issues for me with maxxis tires, "DHF/DHR" alone is about 30 different tires. i have no clue which one to pick, that's why i run onza's. who needs that many tires?

Let's be real, it's all pretty low until about 2010 and after. Ubiquitous use of droppers and tubeless tire, paired with non-road geo and non-divey forks has been a boon for bikes. I love looking at old bikes, but a 90s era rigid steel bike with smokes and vbrakes sounds downright painful and terrifying on almost anything I ride now, haha. Here's to the future.
