Independent Deluxe Steel

Picked up a classic 26" Indie last weekend from the classifieds. Still figuring out the best way to utilize her. Here she is as a light trail/kombucha-go-getter.

So are the black ops considered the creme de la creme? I got lucky because they came with the ride. Seem to be very popular and still retain some resale value, but I figured XTRs might be preferable performance-wise. Either way they stop my ass just fine

If

The only thing I would recommend is a modern wide handlebar. Otherwise that rig is as relevant now as it was in the 90's. Enjoy the ride of a hand crafted steel bike.

I'm local and have a 740mm 31.8 Ritchey WCS bar that I would let go cheap.
