The Mistress

check out the orange Chris King hubs

My new singlespeed is built up. Thanks to the Revolution team for their help!

I wanted to wait until I got it a little dirty before I posted a pic. Kind of like when I was a kid with new white tennis shoes. I was always embarrassed to wear them until they had some dirt and scuff marks on them.

It has exactly one ride on it. Enough to know I that I really, really like it. Something about the Niner geometry that just feels right. I'm running a 34x20 for the rest of the season but might go back to the 32x20 eventually.

I met Tony, Jon, and Trent yesterday after work to test it out. The ideal testing grounds needed to include both the Jacob's downhill and the Clark's climb. We went up and down Jacobs, down Ghost, up the new rock/stair section, and then up Clarks.

It's light and fast. Enough said.

You are a bold man to have your mistress in the same house as your wife! Maybe you better keep the Niner at work.

And do my eyes see a matching King headset too? The new ride does look good.

Is your old Rig still together or did you have take parts from it for the Niner? I'd like to try riding a SS, if your offer still stands. Who knows, if I dig SS I may offer to buy the Rig.

Sweet looking ride. I like the red king hubs.

Your wife must like the fact that now you're only riding one mistress (oops, that didn't sound good). My wife isn't too thrilled with me having multiple mistresses. She's beautiful, by the way. Can't wait to see her in action.

Nice ride. Can't wait to see it live.

nice looking bike, I'm jealous. I was up at the house today and forgot to get a peak.
