I Got Stripes

Hey gang.
Another bike here.
This one was made for Brian Vernor.

This bike is a pretty straight forward mountain bike.
Twenty six inch wheels and a full compliment of gears.

These are a new dropout option from black cat.

This bike replaces Brian's Fat Chance Yo Eddy
he bought new in 1991. Big shoes to fill.

Yes, there were a lot of tiny pieces of tape
used to make this paint job happen.
A lot.

You know how sometimes
something pops up repeatedly
in a small amount of time?
For me, lately, that's been
Willie Nelson's
Phases and Stages.
A very good record, but when you go
to the TUBES of YOU, all you can really find
is other folks singing Willie's songs.
All but this song.

Here's that Johnny Cash song that
matches the post title as a consolation.

New dropouts?

not trying to make anybody envious, just trying to keep those folks who are ploppin' down the dough happy.

the new dropouts are just regular dropouts intended for geared use with a disc brake but keeping the same aesthetic as the swingers.
pure 4130 cromoly goodness.
