One of my favorite memories on that bike was riding around Yosemite Valley during a family camping trip. I'll hang to that bike and pass it on to my kids.

I just finished 40 miles at 90 degrees. It was only 10:30 am. Got a good size hole in my tubeless tire that spewed sealant all over my bike. It took over a minute before it sealed. Glad I didn't need to install the tube on hot asphalt. Aired up and moved on...
