Builders description of this bike.
- An affordable ATB for a life time of plowing the fields
or woods thrashing! Tractor Green! Built with the
legendary Patco seamless 4130 Air Craft tubing, the Dear
John is a "bike busters" best built bike.
A comment from Garryck regarding his BTC equipped bike.
- "Steve, I spoke with you at the bike show in
Anaheim. At the time I was the Master Tech for the REI
store in Northridge, CA. I was waiting for my custom
Cherry. Well it came and I love it!! I had a few
months with it in California before I came here to Korea.
I did and epic four day 560 miles all out push from San
Francisco to Los Angles fully loaded as a test. If you
only have four days off you have to do it in four. Plus I
got in some great high speed fire road descents, and tons
of tight single track. I even made some spiked tires and
got some winter snow riding in before I left. I am going
to attempt to ride up to the DMZ. I will see how far I
can get. I meet so many bikers here that wish they could
have brought their bike. The S and S Coupling saved me. I
could not think of living without my bike. Thank you so
much for such a wonderful product. A lot of the time I
have to hop on a subway to get to a good riding
destination so I just put it in its back pack, go to the
desired stop, put the pack in a locker, and then hammer.
It's the best!!! "

Comments from Garryck regarding his DMZ adventure
- The photo
- Here is my picture from the DMZ. The dirt road
that we are standing on was right along the mine
field . I eventually was right next to the border
fence. All the Korean people I show this picture
to think I'm (pabo) "crazy".
