Anyway, there are still a couple of small things I'm waiting on for finishing touches, which should arrive any day now. At which point I either need a new phone with a better camera, or a friend with a real one to come through, for the finished bike photos. In the meantime, I've been taking the bike out most mornings on a nice little four mile loop near the house; a two mile road climb, followed by a blast down the canyon and back out through the neighborhood (downhill all the way)...

It's hard to put into words, and too late in the evening for me to even try, just how happy the above makes me. Building and now riding this bike is one of the most rewarding and gratifying things I've ever done.
It might be simple and easy to some, but it's not to me. And getting it even this close to being finished means more than I can adequately express.
Especially because I couldn't have done it (absolutely no chance) without this place!
So thank you all. Truly.
build turned out amazing! great take on the m2. it was awesome tracking the progress.
where is this trail at???
i'm local in LA as well if you ever need a retro-riding-buddy. maybe i can bust out the real camera as well
