It’s rare that I put a new bike together. I know, its bad considering I look at fresh components every day. But, I’m stubborn and I like the way my bike feels. There’s a point in the life cycle of a frame when, well, it gets mushy (for a lack of a better term). And sadly, my poor old rig is at that point.
Thanks to everyone who helps me out: Deco, Country bikes, Demolition tires, and my long time employer, Profile Racing.
Introducing, Sheila, my new rig.
In the timeless words of Morrissey/The Smiths: “Sheila take a, Sheila take a bow…”
