And she's done!
Here's my story. Last year a few of my Karate friends and I decided to start getting together and riding to supplement our running. We would ride what ever we had available, mountain bikes, bmx bikes, you name it, we were riding it. Well as our group started to widdle down, we started to get down to the real hard core group (IMO) of riders. Cranking 50-60 mile rides, 3 and 4 times a week. I was loving it.
After talking with a few of the "hard core" I found out they were roadies at heart. As luck would have it, my brother had an older Raleigh that he let me borrow. I rode that thing everywhere for the rest of the summer. But as much fun as it was,the bike was old and TOO BIG. I had the seat pretty much slammed to the frame and was still reaching. Short arms and legs, all torso. Something about a 5'9" guy on a 57cm frame that just isn't right!
So in october I headed to the VeloSwap to find a smaller frame to build. I ended up with a Morgul Bismark Zinger frame (55.5) with a set of carbon forks for 80 bucks. SCORE! With a limited budget I have been piecing it together for the last few months, only thing left is to get it cabled and tuned.
I'm sooo Jazzed.
