This super cool old Phoenix came in for a tune-up. This is the kind of bike that just "shows up" for service out here in West Marin. The owner of this bike bid on a tune-up I donated for a charity auction. The Phoenix is likely my all-time favorite riding frame. WTB nailed the design of this frame from the get go and it remained, essentially, unchanged throughout its 6 year production run. I don't know anyone who has one who doesn't rave about it and the few folks who have had one and have sold theirs off still have regrets - right Marty ;-) ?
This one even has a custom stem. The stem cap is integrated into the stem as well. Pretty cool touch.
The brakes on the bike were WTB Speedmaster canti brakes. They have the ubiquitous crack in the pad holder. Too bad these brakes had this problem. They were pretty darn cool.
