A lot to like here. San Franscisco, Sutro trails, single-speeding.
Ordered in June. Parts collected since July. Got a text yesterday from the LBS telling me that it’s on its way from the Q mothership.
In the past, I’ve always found this sort of thing a bit silly–climbing Alpine cols on a track bike in a rather large gear, only to skid the way back down.
But his connection between laziness and simplicity–admittedly paradoxical–is one that resonates with me.
Last night’s ride the long way home (LWH) sent me westward on a coffee-outside reconnaissance mission. If it’s not already obvious, I like to drink my coffee near the water.
The ride wasn’t as long as I would have liked, but the fall scenery more than made up for it–and recon was a definite success.
They’ve got it right — it’s about how you travel.
Though to be fair, they also picked a pretty damned good where.
