So so so sweet, brings back memories of mine. I sold it because my wife almost killed herself (she had two plates and eleven pins in her elbow) on a ride in San Louis Obisbo... my bike was the lightest ever! No kidding, then I was a gram geek... so much so that I had Kooka Racha Brake Levers... no doubt they led to my wife's nightmare crash... her helmet was split in two... thank God we survived that day. Anyway, what a sweet bike. One thing I remember is people would tell me that Mantra's don't work... B.S. they would tell me that the rear suspension would lock up when you stood up... duh! if you're standing up why would you want the suspension to be functioning!
