n/a

My new daily rider! So far all I've done is swap out the pedals and tires and slap on my RD bottle cages, Bontrage pump and Cateye headlight/tailight set. Was planning to buy some barcon pods to convert it to bar-end shifting, but I think I'm fine with downtube shifters after all. Will definitely swap out the padded bar-tape for some Fizik Microtex. Also planning to strip it down and do a full cleaning & partial restoration, hopefully by this Spring or Summer at the latest.

Yeah, I'm actually using a 29er wheelset on my Specialized, and that's 135mm into a 130mm dropout and it works fine too.
