    Anarchy and DiSSent

    OK, maybe not anarchy, but plenty of DiSSent soon to be happening here. Brought this black beauty home from Sea Otter to replace the KM as all around singlespeeding ride.

    Build up to follow, likely on the blog and on thecyclistsite

    First aluminum frame for an old steel dog like me. We shall see.

    I am very intrigued by it. I rode one a bit at Sea Otter and also cruised the Fe (steel) version. Fun pedaling bikes.

    I have some specific goals in mind over the KM I have now, so I am still working through the parts selection process. Not a bling build, but solid enough. Some parts are getting moved over from the KM, some will be new.

    I am really curious to see how the aluminum frame will treat me, ride and performance wise. I weighed it at 4lbs and 13oz just as it sits, no collar. Not too bad for a big frame at a very reasonable price.

    Ah, I stand corrected and ashamed. I will post up there once I get it hung with parts.
