I talked earlier about the possibilities of heading out to Gifford Pinchot later this summer for some rough stuff riding. The very privileged question I got to ask myself in this situation much to my glee was 'which bike?' I figure I should talk about the one I keep revisiting.
nd everything else just make sense. I got the Hookworm tires from a friend which pretty much make the bike great. i was surprised how much clearance it allowed: I was able to get 2.5" knobbie downhiller tires in without too much issue. It's a tight fit though, that's for sure.
nd that the parts are just things that I slowly came across at minimal cost or for free. It's a good conversation piece, that's for sure.
Put the Lotus on someone's bike rack going up to Seattle earlier this week. This was the sad result:
A little careful cold setting and chasing and its good as new! [well not quite...] Yay forged drops.
