Hello, and thanks in advance to anyone that has any knowledge about this bike. I purchased this Ladies M.T.B. at a yard sale on 5/16 based solely on its components, and not its appearance......all Shimano Deore derailluers, Biopace crank, Deore thumb shifters, Shimano cantilever brakes, Weinemann 26in rims, Esge fenders, Esge rear rack and a Selle Italia anatomic saddle..... in my world ALL super nice, upper end stuff. The bike was extremely dirty, and all I could see for a name was Mistral, And a tubing sticker that says Vitus 999 CroMo lightweight tubing. I looked for hours online and cant find ANYTHING about this bike. I then pulled an all-nighter with a friend cleaning and polishing....... and was stunned with the bicycle that emerged ! see pics ! So where did this bike come from???

Looks like it would be a nice commuter.

Keep it, ride it, enjoy it and maybe in 25 years it may be worth something. It wouldn't make much over here in the UK, ´┐¢10 max on a good day BUT it does have depth and value, so take care of it.
