    New 17lb. Object of Lust

    Just converted to SS because I wasn't getting much of a workout riding Mt. Tam with my wife. Figured I'd work harder with one gear. Turned out I was right, but I end up climbing about 25% faster on the SS.

    I drank the cool-aid, and it is good.

    Wow! Love the paint / ti mix. Nice. Did Lynskey do that or did you farm it out to a painter - if so who? Also, what kind of fork is that?

    I've got a Pro29 that has only been run SS. It's got all day comfort and rideability.

    That's a really sweet ride.

    But you need to loose those wheels.

    Lynskey did the paint on the frame and fork. Fork is a Ritchey WCS carbon fork that is pretty plush for a rigid fork.

    That seat is magic for preventing the boys from going numb on long climbs. My standard ride is a 2000' climb up Mt. Tam and the saddle has a huge channel down the middle to keep everything in good working order on long grinds. :-))

    I have to agree that the Paint/Ti mix came out nice on that. I have always thought a Blue/Ti mix with silver might be what I would do on a frame. The white goes well too. Blue fade to Ti would be my experiment. That is very nice - I'll have to look out for you on Tam on my monthly (or thereabouts) ventures in Marin.
