Hardass. Spring 2012. Harlem, NYC.
When I fired my doctor this last spring because he kept insisting that I not ride a bike, I celebrated by moving most of the beautiful donated parts from the assless to a new frame. Chris King, White Industries, and Phil Wood all donated parts to make the original possible. These are beautiful American made parts that are meant to last a lifetime. I couldn't bear to just hang them all on the wall like some sort of trophy.
