My Father-in-law has been riding his bike more and more recently. Mostly for fun and exercise, but with the addition of the Acorn bag, the utility aspect really came home in the last couple of weeks. It is amazing what even a small bag can add for those who have never carried more than a spare tube. The bike is a Univega Alpina comp in fantastic condition with a great Suntour XC Comp / Ritchey Logic build that is still going strong 20 years now. The original knobby tire was still on front. This weekend I was able to put on a set of Schwalbe Big Apples and reset the cockpit a little with an Albatross bar.
The smile was instant as he took it for a test ride around the block. It is really cool to get someone so stoked. There is a bit more it will need like bearing repack, maybe some new brake shoes, but all in all the bike is in great shape and ready to go.
