Meet my new ride

Cody just finished my new bike!

He'll bring you up-to-date on the specifics later, but I'll just tell you it's beautiful. It has a gorgeous new Brooks saddle, hammered fenders, a sweet little rear rack, fancy hoods and cork bar tape. And, hand to God, it doesn't weigh more than 5 pounds.

Okay, that last part is an exaggeration (and also probably blasphemy), but it's the nicest part about this new hotness. It's so much lighter than my Raleigh Sports. I felt like I was flying today. There's this one hill I have to climb as I'm headed home from work - normally I dread the thing - but today it was so easy!

That Cody of mine really outdid himself with this restoration. I couldn't be any happier with the outcome.
