Taylor Z.

Taylor Zimmerman stopped over this evening for some help with a wheel.  He just biked in from Colorado. He has a tendency to buy $100 bikes or find them in a dumpster (true story), ride them 500 miles to another destination and then sell them. His present rig is a beat up GT that will handle 700cs. The components are a mix of old Suntours, etc. As he's planning on riding this across the U.S. we upgraded some of his of components out of my extras box plus the Brooks Pro I got from Dex Henschel, and sent him on his way. Looking at his bicycles that actually get ridden long distances, puts my overly fancy hardware in perspective. Bicycles are tools which allow us to get from point A to point B as efficiently as possible.

Please keep the camera at your side. Would have been nice to see this unique rig.

Thanks,

Dex Henschel has sent you a link to a blog:

I don't know if this is the proper way to post an answer, but good for you, you did the right thing. I only hope he can withstand that seat. I guess if he rides those distances, his butt is worn in properly.
