Everything laid out before the build.
You guys. I have big news. I have a new bike in my life.
Today I feel like I made a huge step forward in maturity/adulthood/something like that, because I finally built a bike with gears. My Space Horse will be my third bike – keeping my polo bike and my fixie company.
I built this bike mostly with used parts from my mom’s old bike, and parts I found around the BNB shop. The only things that are new are the frame, tires, cassette, and chain. This bike is meant to do a bit of everything: commuting, on road, off road, touring, going fast, etc. I’m excited to explore the wider Boston area on this bike, take it on the gravel roads of Vermont, and do some short bike camping trips this summer.
I’ll be setting it up with a rack and fenders later this week, but for now I want to enjoy a few days of riding around without em.
Robots like new bikes too!
I love that my new bike has the Hennepin Bridge on the head badge. Many great biking memories from that bridge in Mpls.
