I got a new bike built up. Its a miracle bike really. I've been thinking about building a full 29er for a bikepacking specific bike for over a year now. The plan was to get one this winter or spring, then life happened and plans fell through.
I went ahead and put it out there that I was considering a full 29er and things started to go my way. Friends called with parts they had that they needed to move on. Liberty Bikes had the rest of the parts that I lacked. Before long, I had my new bikepacking machine built up.
As I write this, I find it difficult to express how grateful I am for the opportunity to build this bike. When you see me ride by and see the smile on my face you will understand.
I hope to upgrade the frame in the future to something sweet and hopefully handbuilt, but for now, I'm pleased, and look forward to many adventures!!
