So as some of you might know, I sold my RIP. Basically, I sold it to pay for my little trip to Sedona. I hardly rode the bike, and I felt pretty bad having such a nice bike hanging out and collecting dust. It was time for it to make someone else happy.
This left me without a “fun” bike. Or so it would seem. See, I have this other bike that was just hanging around collecting dust.
My WFO has been for sale for over a year now. It has sat in the shop, unridden for a whole season, apparently with nothing to offer. Reasonably spec’d with I9/Stan’s wheels, a Joplin adjustable seatpost, and a mix of X9/X0 parts, the bike failed to catch anyone’s eye for the song I was giving it away for. Well, you all have missed your chance.
As the bike sits right now, it is a portly 34.8 lbs, considering there is 8 lbs of tires on it, it is pretty light for what it is. Well, pretty light doesn’t fly with me. This WFO needs to go on a diet. I’m not expecting massive weight loss, but I will be swapping some parts from other bikes onto it to get the weight to what I would consider manageable for what the bike is capable of.
This weekend is going to be our annual attempt at camping up in the Kingdom. I hope to have the bike ready for that long holiday weekend. I got some trails I want to visit…
