In it's own private Idaho

Yes, it is true-this bike is now in Idaho. I guess if I were Dan Quayle I would say it is in Idahoe because of all the potatoes up there. This bike is what they call 'burly' where I live. Sturdy 36 spoke wheels with Phil Wood hubs, Tange Presitge 'ultrastrong' main tubes and a stout steel fork. It may be stylish but it can be beaten savagely on the choppy tarmac of Boise.

That set of bars kind of gives the bike a look of, "Hey, Iv'e only got 5 minutes to get to my 17th century English lit class!" least that's the image that I see in my feeble brain .
