Here is the interview Mike from the Locked In Show on YouTube did with me!
Let me set the scene here for you. Mike came up to my garage (shop if you will) and I gave him a little more rear end clearance. His rims are really wide so it made the 35mm wide tire both wider and larger in circumference. So he got a seat tube dimple! Now he has 3 mm of clearance!
Mike uses the same pedals I do so I tossed my shoes on and took it for a little rip. First thing to note was the weight, 18 lbs with 29er wheels and 35mm tires. Acceleration was WOAH! Second thing of note was the smoothness when seated and the stiffness when out of the saddle! IDK how that’s possible but… Columbus Spirit I guess. The third note is how cool eTap is!
Oh, also, it was 110°F before we closed the garage door to do the interview. So, call it 115° during.
Well, without further adue, click the pic below!
Two things for me to take away from this.
1. People tell me I really sound like this!
2. Mike is rad and it was really fun doing this!
The bike came out bitchin! Just wait till you see what he has in store for the paint!
Till next time, hug your kids, adopt your pets, do good shit like donate a few bucks to your local food bank when you can (some of your neighbors rely on that), wear a helmet, turn on your lights, buy something little for your partner to say you love them just be-freakin-cause, eat desert and say “Hi” and smile when you see people! Anybody! Doesn’t matter who or what they look like, what they’re riding, (or not riding), what color, religion or country they’re from because a smile is a universal symbol of peace and we need a shit load more of that in the world!
Wow, that got deeper than it was supposed to!
