1985 Mountain Goat Trials

The Trials model was designed for more extreme obstacle riding and featured a taller bottom bracket (13"), shorter chains stays (16.5") and a steeper head tube.  This bike is fully fillet brazed including the high rise stem (there is also a 3/4" headset spacer to bring the bars up higher).  Many Trials bikes would have only used a single or double chain ring setup but this one has a three rings.
