She's been passed around a bit before me and had a few cracks, but those were sorted by Gary at Curtis Bikes. While I was there , my previously brakeless frame sprouted a brake mount and all has been well! Its not a light bike by any means, but it's built to be solid. It's a dream on the front wheel and is the most versatile bike I own. Not exactly a looker with the patches of missing paint, brazing and paint pen'd graphics, but it's my bike!
