1991 Grove Innovations X-Frame

My Grove collection has seen some growth lately including this little X frame. I can't remember the last time I rode one these things and it might be a while longer as this one is much too small for me to do any riding on, but fortunately I have a 19" I'm putting together as well, in addition to an Assault and another Hard Core.

Although not one of the first generation Xs with internal cable routing, this is a fine example of early style X frames manufactured in April of 1991 using Suntour dropouts in the rear and a 1" head tube.




Most of the parts on this bike need replacing, but the frame is in really good shape so it will stay original.

  1. If that X is too small for you, why not offer it up to a kind friend from PA. We've spoken more than once in the past. IIRC, you may even have taken my Merlin FS (not sure fr sure). I'd love a Grove X. Finish your big one and sell her to me. Be kind! :)

    1. Feel free to drop me an email. I haven't figured out what I'll do with this bike yet. It's actually getting shipped to me from PA as I type.
