Like a Kid Again

Holy shit this bike is fun! It's been a long time since I've ridden anything with a coaster brake, I mean a really long time, as in childhood. I certainly forgot how touchy they can be, not a whole lot of play between slowing down and a full on power slide. Oh, how I love that power slide. The bike itself a full on tank, tipping the scales at 38 pounds and even with an easy gear I get a little burning in the legs on the 1/2 mile flat ride home from school. On the plus side, drifting the tank through wet grass is just about the most fun thing I can think of. Now where in the hell can I find some cheap fenders that will fit over 26 x 3.0s?

That bike deserves some homemade wooden fenders.

I think you're definitely on to something there, it hadn't even occurred to me.
