A few days ago Austin Horse ‘grammed a photo of some old school indexed Deore shifters attached to a drop bar adapter, reminding me of this classic Steve Potts mountain bike I’d been meaning to share. Steve Potts, being one of three founding members of Wilderness Trail Bikes, had all the goodies from the WTB lineup. On this beautifully fillet-brazed frame you’ll find the Grease Guard hubs & BB, RM-2 drop bars, LD stem / cable hanger, Roller Cam brakes and a Type II fork. More shots below thanks to Mombat.org.
