I Like Trail Riding, How About You?
So I was trying to get some pics up of the latest for the weekly orgy of immaculate craftsmanship photos over at the arbiters of taste forum at Velocipede Salon when I got bumped from my log in. So, after a quick copy and paste, you get it
first folks. The mint julep 6′ 9′er technical trail bike, set for hot pink decals at the first tune.
Can’t wait to see the rest of the photos (files) local legend Craig Roth was kind enough to snap for me and to paint on the decals after the first tune and true. The bike is for the wife of the neighbor I built one for in the same iteration this November, since winter never happened they were able to hit the fells a lot and are hooked on the MTB’s. First report is that many more tricky trail sections were tamed on the new whip. Really need to set up the Stan’s tubeless on my personal bikes, with the big 2.4″ tires at 22 psi you can focus a lot more on the big obstacles since you aren’t getting bounced off line by the piddly bumps.
Yeah, so, you might be able to see me in the back of one of these pics intently focused on skipping stones between the pilings. Funny then that it was when the shooter and I were both within six feet of it that the wind kicked up and the pretty rock put a nice ding in the fresh paint. Let it be a lesson about having too much fun riding a customers bike, well worth it though and psyched to have found a coater that turned it in two hours on a friday. Practically rode it with the last weld hot.
