Current Stage Info:

After the Bridgestone build was complete, this bike needed new purpose. The most recent version has a town shredding/ grocery grabbing vibe and usually the bike resides at my shop so I can grab food from the local businesses near by.

Frame is surprisingly stiff and is actually really fun to ride around town.
