But, when I decided to go single speed for a while, I decided to start putting blue bits on the bike and take it from there. At some point I just let go and started searching for anything blue, all the way down to the chainring bolts.
And then I had saved enough money to purchase a set of I-9 wheels.
It has been a blast though. And yesterday, while taking the virgin wheelset for a trial run, I looked down at the bike and grinned, ear to ear.
And of course my wife for being enthusiastic about the project. I had her full support from day one, that means a lot!
