The Story:

I would have to say that this is a extremely rare bike. This Trail Ridge was purchased by a good friend of mine the same year I purchased my Parkpre Team 925 in 1993 & was my main wingman bike through till 95″ when the bike was abandoned by its owner. The bike sat in a pile with other bikes outside at another one of my friend’s house until 1997 when I reclaimed the frame and what parts were left and put a working spare bike together for a “guest” rider w/out a bike. It did get used a few times for a couple years and then sat in storage until 99 to 2011 where I have gave it a overhaul with new cables, cleaned & lubed components and addition of spare vintage parts that I’ve acquired over the years. This bike always did ride fast & dreamy and now rides sweet as ever. This is a fast solid bike that I would not part with. Trail Ridge “Trail Head”
