^built for speed, but not to last. i knew a couple guys with p23's (the sweet fillet brazed ones) that didn't last a season. can't imagine how frail a p20 would be.

i had those red megabite tires. they were a superlight, low density compound, but they sucked. never had a tire that was so prone to pinching.

I'm with you F. You must have been pretty young when those came out though.

It would be sweet to find one stock on Ebay.

I thought the Crumpton Climber was the god of weight-weenie bikes: 7.1 lbs, including a brake, a gear and a water bottle holder! Only $14,000!
