Mountain Bikes Converted to Road Bikes

These are intermediate priced road bikes built generally with light aluminium secondhand MTB frames and medium priced components.
I sell these bikes to commuters and leisure cyclists wanting to try road cycling at much lower cost than a drop bar road bike or a fully new alloy framed / carbon fork custom bike.
These lightweight bikes perform brilliantly, have wide gearing range with good top speed and great hill climbing ability.
These bikes are fully customised to the users requirements around my own conversion formula.
They are generally sold with my home built narrow 700mm road wheels (Ritchey rims and stainless steel spokes) with red Michilin Orium 23mm tyres.
