1987 Columbine Mountain Bike

This bike is not for sale. The bikes and parts we currently have for sale can be found on the MOMBAT for sale page.

This bike was sent to us by the original owner.  The frame was produced in May of 1987 and has had one repaint since then.  The components are also an evolution that, while not "period correct", show how the bike was upgraded over the years.  Part highlights include the IRD Progressive U brakes (the rear obviously had been mounted on the chain stays of a different bike at one time, chain suck marks) and WTB Grease Guard hubs laced to roll down Mavic MA-40 rims.  The stem is a filet brazed Columbine stem measuring a whopping 190mm long!  What appears to be cable housing is actually a steel tube painted to match the frame.
