or Whisky Tango Foxtrot from Van Dessel.
A couple guys rock the Country Bob for single speed,
and I like the downtube on the older model,
and the arched top tube on the newer model.
So I thought I'ld look around their site,
and I don't know how I missed this:
I know how I missed it.
I haven't seriously purchased or looked at a magazine
for a year or so.
It's something I've been working on for a while,
kind of like a 'self-improvement' thing.
I'll save that for another post.
But the Whiskky Tango Foxtrot?
Bright 1984 Haro Master green? Favorite!
And arched top tube? Sweet!
But even better is the split at the end of the top tube!
Back in, ohhhh that 94-98' time frame
I had a KHS Fleetwood.
It needed a little longer top tube,
but it was years ahead of it's time!
But I just didn't appreciate it, so I sold it
(and all of my mountain bikes and tools)
when we bought the house.
I even really, REALLY, miss the mountain bikes.
In such a small town,
I figured I'ld see someone on one,
and offer to by it back. But nothing.
Anyways.... it's easy to get rambling on that one too!
But the WTF could easily be a monster cross,
or a 29er.
Better put it on the back burner for now!

Probably didn't even think about it.
Maybe it's filled to the rafters with old bikes
Or new bikes in boxes,
waiting for a new home.
there's odd sounds.
And you notice a mechanic or two are missing...
A quick little session while bolting together
The Fat Bastard.

I'm not a stranger to storms.
Denver has them.
Salt Lake has them.
Two feet won't even close businesses.
But give the northeast a couple inches,
and there's almost a panic.
No milk or water at the grocery stores.
Everyone is in a hurry to get home
before the snow falls.
