I've been riding road bikes for a while and have been more recently introducing gravel biking but I hadn't ridden a mountain bike in over 10 years. After rebuilding several of them, I started thinking I should get one and ride trails again. When I saw this beautiful Rocky Mountain Blizzard with the Canadian Maple Leaf paint scheme come up for sale in my size and in my price range, I just couldn't pass it up. It received a wash and lube and I made some adjustments to the suspension and cockpit but other than that it's as I got it and it's in use. This winter I'll rebuild it and make it like new again.
