Let it snow...just a little
But Chris got/built/adapted me a snow bike for Christmas. This is a custom Holley special.
He took an old frame he got from the Shop. And had the chain stays and seat stays adjusted at a local metal shop. He also had them build a disc brake mount. Then he welded it back together elongating the stays to fit the bigger rim and tires.
He drilled out my rims so they would be lighter and increased the Q-factor to accommodate the wheels and tires again.
He stole drive train, shifters, brakes and levers, and cranks, etc. from my Hi-Fi. He bought a Surly fork and put everything back together again. Now I just need to find some snow.
