Quick sneak peak for Steve


Not a whole lot to say - 4" travel, tapered steerer, 44.5cm chainstays, 29" standover and 29" wheels (syncronicity?). Pretty all-around geometry - 71/73 and 13.5" (before sag) BB height. Intended more for stiffness and durability than super light weight, but the frame is still under 7#.

Still waiting on the BB and cranks, then she'll be on the way.

As an aside, am I alone in thinking of almost all bikes as female? It makes no sense, really, but it's not really a conscious thing.

I think of bikes as *tools*. I once gave a fish I caught *personality* traits and my friend Tauras gave me massive shit! I try not to give SEX to aything anymore.. 'cept human..women!!

The pony thing still weirds me out, JJ. But I'm glad you agree on the female part.

BTW, drop me a line. I have an idea for ya.

I have a mix of he-bikes and she-bikes. Actually, the only she-bike is the one you put the girly badge on. The rest are dudes. And they all have names.

Hassan said...

ah... you named my bike if I remember correctly.

I'm not so sure that Japanese, Homer Simpson look-alikes are actually gendered but who am I to judge.

Walt said...

Ah, yes. Mr. Sparkle. That's masculine, albeit very, very gay. Excellent point, H.

Yeah, its like a ship or like an airplane, for some reason, i don't know why (nor do i feel a need to have to) i just identify it as female. Also, i sleep with my bicycles, so there's that.

I know WW #1 as Habu. As in Blackbird and ironic.

I usually let them tell me who they are; so for now I will just call this one Beautiful.
