    I think it is, it originally came off my old Muddy Fox. It has performed well since you kindly gave the frame to me and the latest rebuild and parts scavenging from the now dead Hybrid have improved it even more.

    My Trek 800 Sport was bought for a daily 10-mile commute, it did well, and is still going strong. Is everything you describe. Was my last ride, in fact.

    PS: OP: that's an absolute cracker. What are those pedals? Look like a nice intermediate between flats and clips.
