Keep the questions coming.
With a heavy heart, this bike is now for sale. I hate to do this--it's gut-wrenching--but she needs to go. The ask is $4k, which I realize is a little steep. But y'all see all the work and money I've poured into her. Please also understand that she needs a crank rebuild, which will cost around...
