Does anyone have one and what can be said about these bikes? I have a picture of one in a '88' Mt. Bike Action. It looks like a pretty darn nice ride...

SL, I know just the one youre talking about and I always loved that one too. Tons of character.

Orangejust, thanks for the link. Nice Toad!
For sure, it looks like a really well balanced machine. Well outfitted too!

SL - There are a couple Toad threads with some good pics in them.

I'd like to try one out but they've been seemingly quite rare.

E- thanks for the heads up in the links. Dave (Steelman) and I were sitting around last night looking through my old mags, we really liked the ad./ pic. in that '88' M.B.A. and figured this is the best place to get some info.

Yeah, I'd like to get my hands on one too, or at least have a day of riding on one:D

Now why did somebody have to go and bring up toads again. They were THE bike we wanted, or at least wanted to ride, back in the late 80s. We were so inspire by them that we took Earl Bob's Marin something or other (prestige frame) and moved the brakes to the seat stays and went to top tube routing. Little brazing, little filing, and Earl had his own version of a Toad.

Well not quite. Let's just say we tried.

I have an issue of MTB Action from 1995 (I think) which has a ride review of the Offroad Toad, complete with photos and other info. Feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions and/or would like me to copy it for you.
