My new bike is pretty sweet. I underestimated the excitement it would engender. (Thanks B!)
The fatness is pretty giggle-inducing (insert phallogocentric bike quip here).
I approve of the stickers. Being reflective is a great touch.
I’ll take it to the LBS to get the headset installed once the new crown race comes in, but it’ll be a while before it’ll have something to roll on. A good exercise for me, as historically I’ve been of the damn-the-debt-full-toys-ahead school. M has helped me grow up, and I’ll be able to savor the luxury of owning so many cool toys.
The sparkly paint is impressively handsome. The adventure by bike slogan a good one. The igloo is cute, perhaps a little colonial, but I can live with it. Frame (17″) with bolts and seat clamp is 4 lb 10 oz. Fork is 2 lb 8 oz (oi!).
