    New Kish in the house.

    I just got the bike together and it's sweet. Now if the mud would just go away so I could take her out!









    You wouldn't be in so much pain if you didn't ride like a dork!

    Your girlfriend gave you a cog? Does she have a sister?
    Seriously though, nice bike! The mango/ ti combo is blingin!!

    lol. Yes she does but they aren't into bikes. Willie loves bikes and has a Kish 29er as well but hers is geared.

    22! Ow, my brain... and my wallet, since now I need it even more than I did a few months ago. Well, we'll see how the house repair, taxes and selling everything I don't need progresses in the next few months.

    Jim Kish seems like a really nice guy, too. I met him at the nahbs show in San Jose a couple of years ago. He had a Ti road frame there that was custom etched by an artist at Spectrum (If I remember correctly).

    Jim builds a sweet frameset! That one's a beauty. Very meticulous, and it shows in his work. I was fortunate enough to have him as an instructor at UBI. Great Guy!
