This is the bike that really started it all for me.  It got me into bike building, racing, commuting and trail building.  The Qball frame, I think is one of the most versatile frames on the market and opened my eyes to all styles of riding which allowed me to experiment on.  It's sale marks a new chapter in my love of cycling but one that I will always remember.  It is, hands down the best bottle opener I have ever had and I loved it as a bike, too!

Bottle Opener comes in handy!
