a couple of pix of my baby, with better ones of her (and her sister,
my wife's bike) in a week or two, I hope.
700, 57cm, steep geometry, yet somehow stable and comfy for 6"1"
me. Replaced the pedals with MKS GR9s, the stem with a Technomic,
and the bars with Nitto Noodles. Tires are Bontrager RaceLite 25mm,
which I like way better than I thought I would, and saddle is an
old vinyl Avocet Touring, my favorite for many years. The rest is
mostly Suntour--sealed hubs, Superbe Pro shifters etc., Bridgestone
brakes. She does mostly commuting but gets out on Sundays and kicks
her heels for a while. And she's tough enough to take on LA traffic,
hills, and potholes!
