Long Tall Sally Is Here

January 30, 2011

Meet Long Tall Sally, the fiery redhead mail order girlfriend I’ve been hyping up the past few weeks. Colleen still isn’t sure what to think of her. At least Ladybird is happy knowing dad has another toy to ride so she can chase them around. Scott from YBS Bikes hand delivered her to me Saturday morning. She was built up that evening and this Sunday, the good Lord blessed me with ample sunshine, able body, sound mind, and mile after mile of classic Austin greenbelt singletrack to perform the christening. If you recall, YBS gave away a custom painted frame as part of the prize for winning 24 Hours of Rocky Hill. Unfortunately for me, it was a 26″ frame, and I only ride 29ers these days. They graciously offered a trade-in for a custom built 29er frame. Sally, here, is the final result. Silky smooth steel, awesome paint job, single speed specific, and did I mention fun?  Thanks to the guys at YBS for making it happen and thanks also to my shop sponsor Eastside Pedalpushers for helping with a few parts I needed to complete the build.

The full album can be viewed here. Enjoy these teasers in the meantime.

    Long time reader, first time commenting. The new bike looks GREAT!!! I would like to start a Paleo training program myself. What suggestions would you give to further advance my success?
