The time has come to say goodbye to you, my Big Sur single speed. You've probably been called many names by me and by others: Franken-bike, ugly yellow nightmare, "why is the damn chain always falling off!?". Nevertheless, you served me well and were my foray into single-ring silliness. I bought you as a gearie in 2004 and converted you soon after.
You took me down some pretty rough AZ singletrack. First a 34-18, then you became a 36-18 (big mistake!). I stopped taking you out about that time. Sorry, hope you didn't take it personally...it's me, not you (lol)! You'll be going to Texas (hopefully to a nice Democratic neighborhood)...good knowing you :)
