Picked this one up a while back. Lots of no information on these "rare" "not rare" "300 made" "lots made" "took 130 aluminum cans to make" so don't really know any of that but a fun looker.

Of all the 90's bikes, this one seems to have the most rumors surrounding it. I do not know what is truth.

For a while I saw a lot of those frames at the flea market then they all went away-- found one in perfect condition on CL for $20 so I got it. Just an interesting kinda of bike.

The only bit of info I know to be true is how costly this must have been to build. That frame is definitely NOT standard issue.

I had this exact bike when I was a kid.

Wait a minute... I crashed it when I was a kid, knocking off the front reflector and bending the bracket for it in such a way that, if you turned the handlebars all the way around, it would scrape an arc into the aluminum behind it. I can see that your bike is the same way.

Uh. Either that was a VERY common occurrence, or... where did you say you bought this bike from?

Yeah, that makes sense as the chain stay is bolted on, but would have to move in a different arc, not allowing movement unless there's some way for the chain stays to pull away from the bottom bracket, like on a spring . . . though it would make more sense then that the round cover would hide a damper. That would have been way too expensive.

That would have been cool though! Lol
