Was my daily commuter from the beginning of last summer all the way through a Canadian winter, and finally this summer.

I got the opportunity to ride at the RedBull Minidrome (So much fun!!!) only got to do about 5 warm-up laps and then crashed. I bent the fork and just didn't have a replacement for it. So I figure, crashing on the Minidrome was a good way to end its life. I'm keeping the frame as I have so many good memories on it. First track stand, learning to fakie, and carried me through all sorts of shitty weather reliably. Even with a seized seatpost (not my fault, previous owner fucked up somehow, still don't know how, right size seatpost for the frame and everything, but it feels like the post was too big)

May she Rest in Peace :) She deserves it

I took off the brake for the pic. I like the clean lines for the pics :)

my usual brake system is some no-name tektro brake and a crosstop lever

Thanks for the tip, next time i have an issue with my seatpost, i'll be sure to try, but as i said, this bike is no longer w/ me :(

retired over a fork?

its super easy to find a 1 1/8 threadless steel fork...why would you retire a perfectly good beater over that?
Heres a few for example:

I kind of also wanted a new bike lol so this also gave me the opportunity to get one lol :P It's also too small for me, and as i couldnt adjust the seatpost, its best i get a bike my size now.
