I used to live with a girl whose parents owned a home on Mill Creek Road right below the summit of Mission Peak, I can vouch for the homes in that area. Beautiful scenery there.

Cool bike too, I used to really want one of the GF hardtails back in the day.

Baby got a new pair of shoes this morning. Adjusted the brakes as well, now she stops on a dime.

Anyone have a suggestion for a comfortable retro-looking saddle? I was actually thinking about finding a Schwinn lightweight mattress saddle, I always felt they were extremely forgiving.

@soddruntlestuntle That Sierra looks great! Looks much better with the skinwalls. I had one of those some years back and sold it to a friend. The U-brakes are a bit fussy to set up but are very powerful. Just keep an eye on it, because as the pads wear, they strike higher and higher on the rim eventually reaching the tire.

A Schwinn mattress saddle would work on that bike. If you want to go medium width, the Avocet Touring I and II saddles are both retro and comfortable. From experience, the ones that have "USA" on the side seem to be more comfortable than the other incarnations.

@Heatwave Nice GT! It looks like mid to later 90's with those decals and the V-brakes I think '95 was the last year for the prominent "GT All Terra" decal on the downtube. Those bikes will go forever.
