My daughter has been saving her nickels to have a custom bike built. Fortunately, she’s friends with J.D. and the folks at C&L Cycle, who do great work. Her brand new Bassi frame is ready and sits on the stand for assembly. I will document this work of art as it evolves over the next few weeks.

She deserves it; she rides almost everywhere (including to work) and hangs with a pretty hard-core group of riders, some of whom ride all Winter. A great activity….my personal favorite as well. And since she doesn’t own a car, she can well afford it with what she saves. The advantages of living and working downtown.
