I got the final part to complete the perfect (for me) single speed.
The Paragon Machine Works 142X12mm Combination Head Rear Skewer (part no. SK4010).
When I got the ENVE crabon frok, it came with a nice, simple bolt-on skewer.
Specialized labeled product until I got rid of the S-logoed lever... because... Specialized... and burritos... because everything for burritos.
That is until I was randomly perusing the Paragon Machine Works website for some reason or another, saw the news of this thing just being released, and boom. I gave it that much thought.
There is a practical side to this. Some say that I hike-a-bike rather quickly, I suppose for a man who stands at four apples tall. I do this by channeling my anger and sads at the same time and driving that energy into so many flailing, tiny limbs to propel myself up whatever mountain is in front of me. There's a certain lack of coordinated effort in my movement, and often times, I find my shin making contact with any protruding part on my (at that time) useless bike.
I now have one less thing to take a chunk out of what is left of my shinny shin shin.
So, for now, I feel as if my bike is a completed project. Perfect in
every way... save for perhaps the Bluetooth Thomson drooper that hasn't
been made yet because they're still waiting for the terminator to be
sent back in time so they can borrow technology from it's semi-crushed
head part to create a working product.
Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-lagunga
