It's not about the--hey--Chris King, Chris King, Chris King
I just wanna make the wheels spin
Forget if it's a geared pig
The Reba Monkey is done with wrenching for a while. Mounted the new wheels and they are sexy. Even risked losing my cheapo street cred and threw a Thompson post and stem on her. CST Tubelesses seem to be holding pressure nicely.
The most erogenous bike zones are...
- NOS 1st generation Avid SD 2.0 brake levers set in a full 2 inches from the grips (Wide F'ing Open leverage dials too)--holy one finger braking
- DMR Revolver rear hub bolt on Allen boltz
- 185 front disc
- Mismatching color for Thompson post and stem
- NOS Old skool Shimano 535 SPD
So one might think that if you throw a little bling-bling at a heavy old Surly frame you may not be too disgusted when you throw her on the scale, but ugh!?!?!?! She comes in at a whopping 30.5 lb here on Earth at 100 feet above sea level. Just another BBS (Bill Blandford Special) in the end;-)
As Moto Moto says, "Gurl, You're HUGE!"
