The check's in the mail

I put money down on a Kestrel R700 frame and was told it would ship in February. But today I got email saying the frame was in! I paid and, as of today, I have a shipping number. I should have a new frame in not so long. And look at this thing. Is that one cool looking bike detail or what? By the way, that's copper, not orange. I don't want to even hear the word "orange." The term is "copper." Are we clear now?


  1. In Dutch, the word for "copper" is "oranje"...

    Goede oranje fiets.
    Waat grupenset?

    And Schwinn made a lovely orange bike in the 1970's when you were in your 20s. Or were you in your 70s in the 20s?
    But doncha really wish it was the black frame,Raiders guy? :)
