This show bike is for sale. I am needing room in the shop so it must go. I did put a new stem, a steel one that I built that raises the handlebars about 1 1/2". This is a good bike for a 5'10" person who doesn't give a crap about brakes. You could put brakes on, though.....there's a hole in the fork and the rear brake bridge of you want to be sensible. Call me at the shop weekdays at (831) 429-8010. I have been riding it a little....it is a lot more fun with the new stem.
