Sorry, the photo quality wasn't very good, the phone lens fogged up in the back pocket... Anyway, my buddy heard about a train derailment over the radio in the morning and it happened at a town that we rode past all the time - Bertram, so we thought we will just go by and see what's going on. When we got there, extraction and removal process was well underway. We went by again the next day and the train cars were all gone, they were fixing the tracks.

My late father-in-law used to drive boats for Foss. He had some great stories!

Yes it is, made by Richard Schwinn..Frame Originally made as a fixie(rear facing dropouts)...but got tired of the same routes so sent it back for proper geared brazeons(DT shifter, rear der, cable stops, etc)...had a Woundup, then Ritchey carbon forks BUT..hands went to sleep. Asked Jon at Moots, 'put a steel fork on it', did, no mas sleepy hands.

Wet weather bike..

Unexpected dirt road with some water crossings on this weekends ride. No disc brakes and 25mm tires and we managed to survive.
