It...... is......ALIVE!!!!

The Technium is officially a bicycle again and it rides pretty nicely but it's not a keeper. No pics yet because I haven't wrapped the bars and it could be awhile because I absolutely suck at wrapping handlebars so I will probably be procrastinating like a champ for a day or two.

Here's the proof, bar tape doesn't look terrible but I got all done and realized I wrapped both sides the same direction from the ends of the bars to the levers......

Looks like it's a keeper, 30 days on Marketplace with hundreds of clicks and a few saves and shares but not even an accidental " Is this still available?" Can't say I'm surprised it didn't sell since it's a 62cm. I also can't say I'm heartbroken.

Actually, it presents really, really well. You did a really clean build on it. Enjoy!

You're only off by a foot LOL. I'm only 6' 1" or so and it fits me just fine, I was 6' 2-1/2" once upon a time before gravity and life beat me down.

I rode this for awhile before I got short....
