When I went to Vernon to look at a Stumpjumper FS, the owner said, "I have another mountain bike for sale. Do you want to see it?" We went around the corner of the garage and there sat this beautiful Brodie. I made a deal for them both.
I love the early Brodies and was thrilled to find one. After doing some research on this one, I discovered that it was from 1996, the first year that Brodie sold complete bikes. It was made with Infinity tubing, Ritchey dropouts and a beautiful rear canti-brake routing guide. The paint was still in decent condition and restored nicely. I was able to find a pretty close match in the Shopper's make-up department. The groupset was in really good condition as well and cleaned up nicely. I can't get over how light this bike is! It doesn't even have the lightest groupset that Shimano made back then but it still weighs only 10.6 kg! I might need to keep this one for myself!
