Elkhorn... KEEPER!!!

Dude, that's one gorgeous Elkhorn! I say the Raleigh Mountain Tour line of the 80s were way underrated, (i.e. the Crested Butte and Elkhorn) especially as all-rounders and tourng rigs. Yours looks...

I'm an old sucker for Brooks saddles... this is a Conquest, a somewhat rare sprung MTB saddle. Love it, but it lacks saddle bag loops. The Flyer Special is positively the bee's knees (IMO).

Thx, I also run Kojak's on another bike, a Handsome XOXO (XO-1 knockoff). Great road tires. Other than in loose mud, they roll very nicely over a variety of terrain. BB

Maruishi Mountace... the original was first a 15-speed version (before the MT18)
