Met a legend at the swap meet
Met a legend at the Saint Paul Swap Meet. I've lusted after his frames, Chris Kvale. It was like the afternoon I met Eddie Belfour, and had him sign a puck. I was just floored. We got to talking about fixed gear. He says that's all he rides. Asked if he could convert my horizontal drops for track drops, he said sure. Asked if he ever takes on apprentices, he said no, "too much trouble."
I'm psyched, my conversion will be modified by one of the best frame builders in the Twin Cities, and one of my personal legends. Now if I could just find a baseball card to have him sign.
