Good night sweet prince


I can't take it anymore.

I've pushed the my old Nishiki to the limits, and short of it being stolen by a cyclops and reforged by Vulcan himself in the fires beneath Mount Etna... well, you get the idea. It's not a polo bike no matter how much i want it to be one.

Call it frustration, call it anticipation, but after Riverside next weekend I'm retiring this thing for good. Even if that means i don't have a polo bike for a while. It's becoming a crutch- I need a sword.

One last ride into battle and she'll finally be put out to pasture.

It's time.

  4. what is bad about it i bet a new fork would aid your woes.

    i'm more a fan of mtbs over road bikes, suits my style more i also like the larger tires. you should look into one. try a larger frame size, look for a stand over similar to a road bike ie less slope in the top tube.
