Jo Routens 1971

Acquired this light and confident Routens from the good fellow Goose Cookie, I put a campagnolo rear axle, welded the bars into the stem, 900 fish'n'chips to hang five. On January 24 of the year 2023 I tried to balance her on a steep incline in the shade of a wooded hill, but every time I would run back to snap the photo a gust of wind would blow her down. I all but gave up and went onwards, then of a sudden a herd of wild geese apprehended me and caused me to be aware of a steep grass hill whereupon I could balance her. Which I did, under the watchful eye of those herbivore. May 22, 2023, made progress on throwing center of balance during tornado spin to chase essential pendulum force. Jun. 30, 2023: found a tricking site with very subtle slope and good smooth asphalt and perfected new approach to entry into spin. On september 7, 2023 it was taken from me as I was on shift at work. I'm still not labeling it as gone, I feel it was meant to happen. I had just bought the swift bag a week prior.
