this is me. and my new bike.
it finally arrived.
and after the cluster that was getting it built - a build that included three trips to the shop (not close by) to pick up parts that should have been included and an amazingly weird manufacturer defect which was a freakish dud of a deraullier hanger;
it's finally built.
and its mine.
this is the first bike that is not a hand me down.
now, don't get me wrong -
i get some pretty sweet hand me downs.
but this one is all mine. and it fits.
i don't have to fight it and its not a tank.
in fact, it's light as heck.
so when i crash, i am not crushed like a bug underneath
and its' lightness is
good for shouldering & running up a hill or some stairs.
i love my new bike. and the super sweet zebra handlebar tape.
