Bike History

  1. Initial
  2. Let there be light!
  3. The Don't Get Dirty Anymore Edition

Current Stage Info:

Just changed the saddle due to issues on longer rides, the chainring (due to wear) to one from AbsoluteBlack, and I finally added some fenders to stay clean.

Besides that, I'm still very happy with this build.

I should've stayed with 36T but 38T are still a good alround solution in my area.
