my sweet ride

DSC_0004

The first real project of any sort I’ve undertaken this summer was the conversion of my dad’s old road bike to an ultra-light single speed urban beast. I stripped off everything that was unnecessary: the derailleurs, the gear shifter, etc… when it was all done the bike had lost about two pounds. Now I can finally stop feeling guilty about driving to Dietrich’s (half a mile away). I got greener wheels now.
