|Big Red with big red handlebars!|
|Big Red with original stock handlebars|
So I splurged! I got a mid-range wheel to replace the stock one. And I replaced my boring black handlebars with some bright red ones that are much wider! It really feels like a different bicycle then when I got it. It's totally a touring bicycle now. The bicycle shop said that it should feel more comfortable when touring and easier to breath as my arms are spread out a little more while holding onto the handlebars.
|Not double-walled, but I think pretty strong wheel/rim|
I spent a bit today, but she's totally one of a kind...and most of the part are not original, except for frame, front wheel, and the back derailleur. Can't wait to tour with her this Summer!
