Galvanized Swobo Sanchez (2015-2017)

Swobo Sanchez I did all sorts of silly things to as I learned about bikes and how to wrench. I've put more miles into this bike than any other and she's very dear to me. She's spent most of her time as a 3x1 or 2x1 in various stages of functionality. It worked best with 26/36/46 chainrings I found, the XTR 960 cranks not so much. And it's HARD to get a gearing together that makes sense for daily riding. Latest configuration is with the white stem, but she's been put out of commission until I get a crankset installed. I plan to set her up as a single speed again. For those who don't know, this Swobo was designed by Sky Yaeger of Bianchi, the woman responsible for the little yellow "100% Chick Designed" stickers. Of course that was probably a Bianchi trademark, but I got one printed for my Swobo because its accurate! Couldn't come close to listing all the various parts configurations over the years. Parts are of the last build I was riding.
