As my first bicycle, I found her covered in cobwebs one fateful Spring many years ago. She went through many iterations as I grew as a cyclist, and she now sits in this state, restored to her former glory. This bike rides like buttah, and is comfortable enough for all-day riding. While not remotely a racing bike I have ridden many many miles on her and she still comes back for more.
