I describe this bike as my 'Rat Bike' as it has plenty of scrapes and scratches on the frame and stem making it look pretty mean. It rides great though as I have always maintained it well despite its rough appearance. It always feels fast and zippy in town and is great fun to squeeze through the traffic with such narrow dimensions.
The wheels are smooth and true as Shimano intended and the headset and BB are fresh and slick.
I am only selling as I am downsizing to one bike for all purposes and this one won't do mountain biking duties.
