So most of you who read regularly know about my custom bike. It was build by Chris Boedeker a friend of mine from Recycled Cycles. I was hesitant to post it until I was sure I had put 300 miles on it and therefore had a completely informed opinion. I love it. Its not a machine for the timid or fast paced. I thought it was going to be like a tank, big heavy, bombproof... turns out its more like a Cadillac, Big, heavy, bombproof and well lets just say its smooth as hell. It descends like a ballistic missile and takes the corners like its on rails.
Best of all, it was built by a friend out of American steel and is kitted out with 90% used components (rims, spokes, tires, bar wrap, cables and housing are new.) Cruelty free, free range, organic, local bike.
It was so worth it.
