Current Stage Info:

Full on commuter/beater that I take literally everywhere. Added fenders for the oncoming rainy season. Changed to knobbier tires because I needed the extra grip when I go on trails and removed the biggest ring as I barely use it lmao. Saw and bought the used MKS MT-Es for $10 (USD) and feels great to use.

Thanks!

The cantis were great, until their springs got worn out.
