I used to have a friend named Texas Joe. It was his real name. He didn't make it up.
Doesn't Mr. Gravity live in Maryland?

DD, you'll be happy to know that I'm soon doing a big reveal of a recent acquisition that has a derailleur AND 650b wheels. It pains me to no end, but you'll understand why it was left intact once you see the bike. It is a stunner!

Thanks for the kind words.
