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.
