Trusty Steed

I have a lot of respect for this venerable steed.

 

It was a modestly priced MTB when I acquired it about 8 years ago.

 

It has been very reliable, and a pleasure to ride after I made some embarrassed adjustments on realising I had bought an undersized frame.

 

I replaced the front forks after about 4 years...it turned out the originals were cheap and nasty.

 

I have photographed the bike leaning against the laerite base platform of the 900+ years old, tri-chedi Khmer ruin site about 30 km from our house..
