    I rode with Shiggy, and he didnt remember how to shift gears!! He has been spending too much time on his singlespeed. He was grinding gears all day. He definitely turned a few heads with the fancy paint job. Another masterpiece, Shiggy, as only you can create. And that Via Benetto frame must be pretty rare!

    It's weird, the last geared bike I rode, I was just like that. I jumped off my SS, onto his bike, and simply forgot that there was a rear derailleur I could fiddle with!

    The Chester is fine. It is still my primary off road ride.

    But a 36x21 gear is hell to ride 10-30 miles on the road to the dirt and if I used a gear good for the road it would be too high for the dirt. I have a 42/32 x 11-32 setup on the Adventure Bike. Plenty of range for the rides I want to use it for.

    And where does one find orange 700c rims?

    And where does one find those particular orange 700c rims?

    Seeing as how I have about a zero percent chance of those rims matching the orange paint on my frame, I should know better than to ask.

    It still needs...

    ...handlebar streamers and spokey-dokes.

    You know, just to complete the look.
